Bavaria 40 Cruiser - Stormtrooper

Stormtrooper is a 2011 Bavaria 40 Cruiser now exclusively and proudly for sale with the team at YOTI.

Stormtrooper is a very well kept later model, three cabin / two head 40 foot cruiser. Designed by the famous and ever popular Bruce Farr, the Bavaria 40 Cruiser is a big volume, comfortable, and easy to handle cruising yacht with a large and open cockpit incorporating a huge fold down swim platform with a twin wheel steering system for easy access through to the transom. There is a large foldout cockpit table with beautifully varnished timber leaves, perfect for alfresco dining on those warm and tranquil summer nights. The dodger and bimini were replaced in 2015 and are in excellent condition and fully cover the cockpit area.

Below decks, Stormtrooper boasts 3 large private double cabins, the forward owners cabin having its own ensuite with timber slatted floor and holding tank. The main saloon comprises of a large dinette capable of seating up to eight adults in comfort, and the modern in line galley is practical and functional, including a 2-burner gas stove and oven that has had very little use, a microwave oven and twin stainless steel sinks. Also in the saloon we find the dedicated forward facing nav station to starboard and opposite that, the day head comprising of an electric flush toilet again with holding tank and a separate shower stall. Woodwork is finished in light Oak to give an airy and modern space.

The North Sails NORDAC 3Di in-mast furling mainsail and furling genoa were replaced new just last year 2017. The Volvo Penta D2-40 saildrive that has been regularly serviced and maintained is logging just over 500 hours. The start battery was replaced in March 2018 and the 2 x 140-amp hour house batteries were replaced in 2016. There is also a separate battery for the Sidepower bow Thruster.

Living on a marina berth on Pittwater, slipped, anti-fouled and engine serviced in just May 2018, Stormtrooper is ready for inspection. Contact Peter Mactier for further details.
