Description; What the Yachting Press say
Bavaria Cruiser 40
A popular 40-foot cruising boat from Bavaria Yachts of Germany. Unlike its smaller sisters, the Cruiser 40 boasts twin steering stations in its cockpit.
The Cruiser 40 features a powerful high-volume hull and has a distinctive deck profile, with a unique concave vertical cabin side rising to a pronounced corner at the roofs perimeter and the proportions work well. The result is a very functional midsize production cruising boat with a distinctive and attractive look to it.
The hull is laid up by hand in Bavarias huge European production facility, with a mix of chopped-strand mat and biaxial fabric set in isophthalic polyester resin. The hull, which is cored with Coremat below the waterline and with Airex foam above, is reinforced with a top-hat style internal grid. The deck is also cored with Airex and is screwed and bonded to the hull on a generous internal flange. The ballast keel is iron.
The cockpit is both comfortable and functional, with long bench seats on either side, high coamings for back support and a 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 youre 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 the coachroof winches on either side of the companionway. The twin sheets, matched with a powerful mechanical vang, should allow as much control over mainsail shape as a single sheet led to a traveller.
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 helmsman, though the jib sheets could also be routed to the secondary winches farther aft.
Moving forward youll find the deck is easy to negotiate, thanks to the aggressive antiskid. Deck cleats are numerous and well sized.There is a small inspection hatch on deck, but physical access is through a gasketed hatch behind the forward bulkhead in the forward cabin below
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. Behind it is a dedicated nav station with a rather small desk, but enough space alongside to mount auxiliary 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.
