The original Bavaria 42 'Lagoon' sold when new for more than a comparably sized new Moody, reflecting the aim of the company to produce a quality yacht. With a comfortable and very spacious interior in hand-rubbed mahogany, the Lagoon 42 was a genuine long-distance passage-maker. An indication of the difference between these 'old' Bavarias and the current versions is that this 42 actually displaces substantially more than the current Bavaria 49.

Yachts seen here are no longer for sale - the data is online as a free information service for buyers researching boat types. THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE COVERED BY COPYRIGHT, AND MAY NOT BE REPRODUCED WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF YACHTSNET LTD.

Both owners and charter versions have twin mirror-image aft cabins. The difference comes in the forecabin, which in the owners version (shown below) has a large cabin with lots of stowage, and even a dressing table and seat. In the charter version twin double cabins are squeezed in.
