When you harness the expertise of both Farr Yachtdesign and BMW Yachtbau in Bavaria’s boat yard, you end up with something very special. With the latest thinking in hull design and sail plan, Bavaria has something really special. A Class ‘A” ocean going vessel that will impress you with finger tip control going to weather in 40 knot winds off Haida Gwaii. As for broaching, you will have to work really hard to even go there. Now you can helm the boat and have a decent cup of coffee with no white knuckling involved.
ACappella 1858 has been meticulously cared for with annual maintenance and upkeep. Even the exterior wood work illustrates an owner’s passion. Owning a boat has its own responsibilities, but a certain pride of ownership is everywhere you look, making the vessel equally inviting to both owners and guests alike. This Bavaria 45 Cruiser will not disappoint you. And Hawaii is only 16 days away. Why fly?
So Why Should You Buy This Boat?
Efficient Sailplan – Think of that small 420 dingy you learned how to sail on. This is its bigger sister. Big main, small jib, what is there more to know? The 110% jib makes sail handling and tacking a simple joy under all conditions. Even quicker to furl. The large main becomes a real treat to handle due to its bridle arrangement, and no need for a traveller. You are not only able to bring the main to centre, but if both mainsheets are pre-set, you in effect have a self-tacking main, and no extra traveller lines to step over. Very nice. If you want more fun, hoist the gennaker for some downwind excitement.
Offshore, Seriously – What you have here is a Class ‘A’ ocean going vessel. This means a vessel capable to navigate the open ocean and surpass Force 8 on the Beaufort scale (+40 knot fresh gale), and surpass waves greater than 4 meters (+12 feet). Adding to this, you have an AIS-Vesper XB8000 and SSB-Icom M802 as part of the navigation and marine communication package among other high-end components including a Viking 4-man offshore liferaft.
A Cockpit for All Occasions – Room to sail. Room to entertain. Room to relax. ACappella can do it all. Thanks to the 14’ beam that carries itself to the transom, you have an unexpected venue that can easily handle 8 guests, and probably a few more. A large cockpit table adds to the functionality and enjoyment whether at dockside, or on a steady run. The warm oiled teak sole provides a further appreciation of yacht ownership and a sense of pride to boot. You may never want to leave.
Dual Helm and Twin Rudders – Putting all jokes aside as “his and her helms”, you really need this arrangement. First of all, you get an excellent view of the weather and waves. Second, no matter what helm you are on, you will always have a rudder that is in total control of the boat. Further, the helm is directly linked to each rudder with no complicated chains or pulleys. Another bonus is extra storage space under the deck where a traditional centre helm station would be located.
Dropping Transom – This 8’ transom lowers to the water’s edge electronically ahttps://www.adobe.com/ca/products/flashplayer/distribution.htmlnd provides the perfect platform to launch kayaks and paddle boards. Even to go swimming. Whether you are exploring Desolation Sound or the San Juans, you have the perfect mother ship where you can depart and make new discoveries.
4 Cabin Layout – Talk about privacy. Eight guests in four spacious cabins. Each with lots of natural light and opening ports, ample storage for their gear, and a door for privacy. It’s the perfect solution for guests to sleep in, to find that quiet place, or put that Uncle that snores like a bear. Even kids will like their own room to play in. Having three separate washrooms and one separate shower stall, all aboard will feel that they are on a bigger boat, enjoying the extra comfort and ellegance. They may not want to leave.
Main Saloon – Having a very open and functional galley with lots of storage, a bright interior, numerous ports for natural light and ventilation, you would think you were eating outside on the cloudiest days. With ample room for your guests, both an enjoyable meal and a game of cards will be memorable. And it is only proper to have the liquor cabinet just below the table. Need extra storage? the bilge is so dry on this boat and deep, you can expand your pantry even more.
