Farr Design

The Bavaria Vision 42

Following the much anticipated introduction of the all-new Bavaria Vision 46, the second in the new line – the Bavaria Vision 42 – made her global debut recently and is already a hot selling model in Europe.

The Bavaria Vision 42 follows closely the design, layout, and innovative features of the Vision 46. The Vision Series has been designed, from the start, to embody the cruising sailor’s wish list. What is striking about this boat is the attention to detail, and the endless list of thoughtful features, some high-tech, and some are just common sense, executed simply and elegantly.

Design Concept

The development process for the Bavaria Vision 42 started with consulting sailors from around the world about what would make the perfect sailing cruiser. Bavaria then combined the expert power of Farr Yacht Design and the British mega yacht design firm, Design Unlimited. The result is a yacht that sets a new standard in the owner’s cruiser category, with focus on high-end elegance, comfort and easy handling. The unique cockpit design with offset companionway allows for a large port cockpit table, which as an option, can be electrically lowered and converted to a day/lounging bed – creating a true living cockpit, not yet seen in the production cruiser class. Twin wheel steering with reliable wire cable system gives fabulous feel to the well balanced helm.


Farr Yacht Designs’ engineering makes for fast and comfortable passages, and complements the premium build quality and finish found in all Bavaria Yachts. All combined, this stunning yacht is sure to draw attention wherever she drops her hook. The 2-Cabin Bavaria Vision 42 can be customized with one or two heads and each floor plan includes a separate shower room. Each yacht is built to an owner’s semi customised specifications, including an array of joinery and upholstery options to choose from. Configuration options include: 2 Cabins, 1 head or 2 Cabins, 2 heads.


This is what Sail Magazine had to say about the yacht: “Although Bavaria’s reputation is built on the company’s ability to mass produce boats at a competitive price point, you’d never guess it looking at the Vision 42. This is a finely crafted, good-looking boat that can hold its own against any other 42-footer.” You can read the full review here.
