2008 Bavaria 46 - £109,000 (Tax Paid)

Following the successful sale of the last Bavaria 46 Cruiser we had available, we are urgently seeking more examples of this very popular boat. She sold incredibly quickly, just a few days after being listed!  Contact us today to sell your boat.

2008 Bavaria 46 Cruiser. 'Next Step' is an excellent example of this great liveaboard cruiser from Bavaria. She was bought by the current owner in 2017 and extensively refitted over the following two years in preparation for a round the world trip. The trip was curtailed in Tahiti in late 2020 due to the global pandemic and she is now being shipped back to the UK to sell. Her extensive equipment list includes blue hull, teaks side decks, watermaker, Wind generator, full suite of Raymarine navigation equipment, ICom SSB and large sail wardrobe. She's due to arrive in Swanwick in late January.
