Designed for a large crew, the Bavaria 46 Holiday is suited especially for tough employment in the charter business. This boat will withstand the extreme demands of chartering arising from constant sailing in any weather conditions and frequent changes of crews. The boat incorporates a conscientious selection of equipment to guarantee the best possible investment to the owner. Due to the spacious layout, a large crew will feel immediately comfortable on board this yacht, whether gathering around the dining table or staying in the huge foreship and aftcabins. The construction at crucial points is beyond the regulations by Lloyds. This increases safety at sea, increases the stability of value and makes living on board more comfortable. Sandwich laminate technology such as that used in the aircraft industry and on ice-breaking boats is used in the above-water hull and in the deck. The sandwich layer is of water-repellent closed-cell foam to increase the dent-resistance of the shell. Its low heat conductivity prevents condensation and makes the interior climate more pleasant. Kevlar fabric, the material of which bullet-proof jackets are made, is worked into the forebody below the waterline to protect against collision. The doubled laminate thickness of the keel flange triples the safety factor in case of impact. The floor timber is reinforced by stiff S-glass layers. The laminate is watertight and prevents osmosis.
