Bavaria 46 Cruiser: 'Ilona 3', 'Mirka 3' & 'Slovenska'
The newest model of Bavaria 46 Cruiser was introduced in 2014, and already after the first sailing season she became known as 'the best Bavaria boat ever', winning numerous prizes among a very tough competition in the boat market nowadays. She is just so thoughtfully designed, keeping in mind all the features that are appreciated the most in a sailing boat; excellent sailing performance, easy maneuvering, a comfortable and spacious interior, and practical solutions, both for sailing and for life aboard.
Our guests love this model so much, that by now we have 3 identical ones in our fleet (2017-2019), but they get booked so quickly that we are considering expanding our little fleet for a new family member. For now, let us introduce you to our three lovely ladies: Ilona 3, Mirka 3 and Slovenska.
Thanks to her balanced sailing, her maneuvering features and high-speed potential – sailing one of our Bavaria 46 Cruisers is a delight for all experienced sailors. And if this is your first sailing experience - you can just sit back, relax and watch your skipper, since she is easily operated by just one person.
All Bavaria boats have spacious salons, but this one is even more impressive; the dining table is huge because it is now foldable and holds the navigation desk, which leaves so much more space for the dining and living area in general. The kitchen is equipped with all the amenities needed for a comfortable holiday, including gas stove with oven, two fridges (one with a small freezer), and everything you need for cooking, serving and eating. Her highlight is definitely the master cabin, since this model can be a standard 4 cabin, or a luxury, owners, 3 cabin option, where the two bow cabins turn into one spacious master cabin with a separated toilet and a shower, leaving the two stern cabins each with their own en suite heads with showers.
This owner’s layout makes the Bavaria 46 a perfect choice for couples who want extra privacy and luxury, since the master cabin is isolated from the back cabins and the living area (she was voted the best choice for honeymooners among many of our old guests). She is also great for smaller families with children, where the skipper and the children have their own privacy in the back of the boat. The lower budget option with 4 double cabins accommodates 8 people and if you are on a very tight budget and don't mind squeezing in a little, somebody can even sleep in the salon area.
Just like with our boats, we put in so many extra details to make your stay completely relaxing and comfortable. To name just few of the items from her equipment list: webasto heating for colder winter days, air conditioning (on shore power) to help you sleep through hot summer nights, a TV set (great for children who can't fall asleep without their favorite cartoon), solar panels for extra electricity (very useful for sailors who don't like going to marinas every night), an inbuilt inverter for charging phones, cameras and computers… Then there is a sprayhood for wind protection, a bimini top for pleasant shade in the cockpit, cockpit cushions and lamp, outside speakers (from which you can play your favorite music from your phone), a bathing platform that gives you even more space for jumping in the sea, sunbathing, relaxing…
Each of our Bavarias 46 have unlimited internet, and also a mobile phone with a Croatian sim card that you can use to call us 24/7 for any question you might have during your stay.
The complete safety and navigation equipment, that we regularly test and inspect, ensure that all our boats are safe and easy to sail throughout the year.
