Broker Remarks

This 2012 Bavaria 40 Cruiser Avantgarde currently moored here in Conwy Marina is a must see. With an outstanding number of factory options fitted she is the pinnacle of her range. With two owners from new she has a full service history with the most recent service having been done in July 2017. The Avantgarde Package includes the distinctive grey hull, in-mast reefing with high-tech offshore sails, bow thruster and a bundle of electronics.

With its high-volume hull, large cockpit, spacious accommodations and variable interior aesthetic, the Cruiser 40 represents a good value for sailors looking for a family cruising boat in this highly competitive size range.

Viewing recommended.

The cockpit is both comfortable and functional, with long bench seats on either side, high coamings for back support and an upgraded fixed table with folding leaves amidships. The split twin-wheel helm allows easy access to the stern, where a large fold-down swim platform facilitates immediate access to the water. The transom is well engineered, with a clever hydraulic hinge that increases resistance as you drop the platform, so that it doesn’t fall flat all at once. The hinge also greatly reduces resistance when you’re hauling the platform back up, so that you need not strain yourself in the process.

The mainsheet arrangement has two separate sheets that are set in a bridle and led forward along the boom, then back to coachroof winches on either side of the companionway. The twin sheets, matched with a powerful mechanical vang, allow as much control over mainsail shape as a single sheet led to a traveler.

The sheets for the blade jib, which sets forward of the wide swept-back spreaders on the mast, are led to winches mounted at the forward end of the cockpit coamings. No primary sail controls, therefore, can be reached by the helmsperson.

Moving forward you’ll find the deck is easy to negotiate, thanks to the aggressive antiskid. Deck cleats are numerous and well sized.

Below Deck:

Three-cabin version, with two staterooms aft under the cockpit and a large owner’s stateroom forward with an ensuite head. The galley is linear to the port side of the saloon comprises of an oven, fridge, and microwave oven, with another head aft to port. The aft cabins are well arranged, with a large dressing area, good stowage and a decent amount of vertical clearance over the double berth. The dinette in the saloon, which can seat seven people easily, incorporates a settee that is also long enough to sleep the odd guest.
There is a good sized chart table to starboard with plenty of stowage, and a toilet compartment on the port side with shower.
