Bavaria 43 - Midlife - $249,000

Midlife is a 2009 Bavaria 43 Cruiser now exclusively for sale with YOTI.

While on the outside the Bavaria 43 Cruiser has continued the traditional Bavaria styling of her predecessor, the Bavaria 42, on the inside it is a different story. The panel matched Mahogany timber work and revised layout provide an incredible feeling of space, light, and air.

Midlife is a 3-cabin layout with a large V-Berth forward including an owners ensuite and two double guest cabins aft serviced by a separate head which boasts a stall area and seat for showering.

The inline galley to port has a large front opening fridge with freezer, gas stove and oven as well as a microwave that can be operated off her 2400w inverter. To starboard is an enormous U-shaped settee that will accommodate the whole family and aft of that sits a full-sized navigation area. Ventilation in the saloon is outstanding with five opening ports and three hatches.

Midlife has been lovingly maintained and improved by her current owner. Over the last three years she has had a new sail wardrobe, a custom fabricated archway with davits, custom made stanchion base plates for additional strength, a new Selden extendable bow sprit to run her asymmetrical spinnaker, a whisker pole to pole out the headsail as well as custom made pushpit back rests.

Supplied with an in-mast furling system and headsail furler she is a dream to sail short-handed and comes fitted with a comprehensive suite of Raymarine instruments as well as Autopilot and a tunnel Bow Thruster.

Midlife is now available for inspection on Lake Macquarie. If you would like to find out more then please call Ian Greentree on 0437 397 298 for further details.
