Bavaria 41 (2018) 'Island Karma'Gallery
The Bavaria 41 (or Bavaria Cruiser 41) available from Horizon Yacht Charters BVI base, designed in collaboration with Farr Yacht Design (USA) and Design Unlimited (UK), and built in Germany, delivers freedom, luxury and outstanding sailing performance for circumnavigation, family sailing and yacht charterers alike. ‘Island Karma’ is the 3 cabin / 2 head version.
The Bavaria 41 ‘Island Karma’ Features:
The clean deck design features an elegantly modern coach roof, and a spacious, ergonomic cockpit area. Twin wheel steering provides clear visibility on all points of sail and when anchoring or docking. There is easy access between the wheels to the giant swim platform – whether to take a dip, or to board the dinghy. There is seating for six at the cockpit table which has an integrated chart plotter, handrails and drinks holders. A large, easily accessible locker provides plenty of room for equipment. With a full array of Garmin integrated electronics and autopilot, combined with all sail controls led to the cockpit, this yacht is easily sailed short or single handed – get under sail in less than a minute, by rolling out the mainsail and 106% Genoa. There is also a bimini for shade from the Caribbean sun.
Below deck, the Bavaria 41 ‘Island Karma’ is all about luxurious comfort and generous amounts of space. Her abundant hatches and the large coachroof windows, allow generous amounts of light and ventilation into the interior, making the living quarters even more comfortable. Interior styling offers a luxurious, contemporary ambiance. The two double cabins, together with two ensuite heads and showers, ensure comparable facilities for the whole crew. Intelligent design solutions below include a folding salon table and adjustable seating for dining with larger numbers. Food storage is greatly enhanced by the expansive 110 litre fridge, AND a 29 litre freezer.

The yacht was pristine. We were very impressed with the stock of cooking equipment. There were plenty hatches and fans everywhere. Jalon did an excellent job briefing us. The BVIs are great. We had no problems due to hurricane Irma.
Wayne Johnson, January 26th - February 2nd 2019
Nice boat – Nice service – Nice time – Thank you all very much
Many thanks to the entire Horizon team at Nanny Cay. We had a fantastic vacation and greatly appreciate the extra mile everyone at Horizon went to make it such a wonderful week! Also, thanks for pairing us with Malcolm, he was an outstanding instructor.

Find Your Rate
Did you know Horizon’s charters start and finish at noon, which means we can get you out sailing your first afternoon after your briefings and you sail back to our dock to debrief and refuel before your noon departure? This gives you a full 6 nights/7 days chartering around our beautiful islands, unlike some companies that start at 5pm, meaning you will have to sleepaboard* at the docks, and then finish at 10am, again meaning you will probably have to stay overnight on the docks the night before you leave to fly home.
*If available, a sleep aboard can be added the night before your charter start for a small supplement, boarding your yacht after 5pm.
Weekly rates (full 7 days / 6 nights) listed above daily rates. Charters start and finish at noon. Our minimum charter duration requirement is 5 nights.
BVI Charter Rates are subject to change without notice.
Horizon Yacht Charters BVI Charter Rates are listed above. Yacht photographs and specifications act as a guide and are for information purposes only.
