Bavaria’s French-built power catamaran will be on display at the show for the first time. As cats go it’s a stylish thing with a great mix of living spaces on deck including a fabulous foredeck with opposing seating and a table and steps that lead up to a large sunpad above the wheelhouse.
The cockpit is massive, with seating on all sides, and leads into a saloon that is bright and spacious and features a well-equipped galley adjacent to a cosy dinette.
For owner-run boats the three-cabin layout’s massive master suite will appeal, but if there’s an eye on charter the four cabin alternative is bound to prove popular. The standard Volvo Penta D4 225hp engines should be good for at least 20 knots flat out but drop the speed back to a single digit cruise and a range of over 1,000nm is likely to be achievable.

The foredeck is a fantastic lounging space with direct access to the flybridge
