Bavaroa r40BAVARIA MOTORBOATS opens the trade fair season with two world premieres in Cannes. The new semi-displacement yacht BAVARIA E40 FLY and the planning hull BAVARIA R40 FLY will be presented to a large audience for the first time at the Cannes Yachting Festival from the 6th to the 11th September. Both motor yachts are manufactured at BAVARIA YACHTS in a new production process. With these revolutionary motor yachts, interior, hull and deck are built in parallel on a dedicated line and only brought together at the end of the 125-metre-long production line. Hull and deck are manufactured in a modern vacuum infusion process, the results are stronger and lighter hulls with lower fuel consumption and higher quality.

The BAVARIA E40 Sedan version has already been viewed by many customers her E-Summer-Tour in June on internal waterways and seas and in many European marinas. Over 500 interested customers from the Netherlands and Germany took the opportunity for a test drive on the BAVARIA E40 SEDAN during the tour.

In Cannes, BAVARIA YACHTS will be presenting the Flybridge version of BAVARIA E40 as a world premiere. A generous interior with a real panoramic saloon, a large owners cabin with heads and separate shower in the bow, as well in the aft as the choice of one or two aft cabins, also dedicated heads, make the BAVARIA E40, whether in Fly- or Sedan-version, perfect for extended holidays with six or eight people. The BAVARIA E40 FLY now offers the helmsman an equally perfect visibility from two helm stations, downstairs in the airy and light flooded saloon or from the large Flybridge. In addition to the cockpit and the large saloon, the cockpit offers the ideal place for breakfast in the sun. The new BAVARIA R40 FLY is characterised by clean and elegant lines, dynamic driving characteristics and high-quality equipment. The ergonomic helm stand in the saloon, with three individual forward facing sports seats, and a door from the helm stand to the exterior deck make travelling and mooring a joyful experience. The spacious Galley features stylish practical work surfaces and space for an optional drawer dishwasher. When not in use the galley becomes a stylish sideboard to complement the spacious salon. The level cockpit to saloon floors complimented by a clever patio door that stows to portside allows the full potential of the saloon & cockpit space to be realised and used as one space.

Not just their own bathroom with separate shower compartments, but pure luxury awaits guests and owners in the two cabins. The full beam aft stateroom cabin with chaise under large hull window is the perfect place to relax. High-grade walnut or white oak joinery choices allow individual customisation, and can be combined with eight professional interior design selected interior upholstery materials. The space on offer in the two cabins with large king-size island beds, numerous cabinets and plenty of natural light, is among the largest in its class.

On deck nothing is left to be desired, even for demanding owners. The helm stand on the spacious Flybridge is equipped with Volvo EVC Glass Bridge for navigation and engine management. Both helm & navigator seats rotate to face L-shaped seat creating superb area to enjoy the day at sea on the Flybridge with its own Bimini cover. On the transom, there is a grill as well as a large bathing platform, on which there is plenty of space for a jet ski or a fast dinghy. Moving forward the foredeck sunpad features adjustable headrests, drinks holders & bimini for perfect relaxation.

Both yachts can also be visited at the Southampton Boat Show in England, and also at the Interboot in Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance from 17th to 25th September.

CompassBy Katherine Stone

Not a hard re-installation - just line up the holes and replace the screws.

I remember vividly my first experience using a chart plotter and navigation system. Deciding that we should try the cruising lifestyle, we purchased an older boat and set out from Hindson’s Marina in Penetanguishene at dawn to sail across Nottawasaga Bay to Thornbury, Ontario for the Canada Day long weekend. It was a beautiful start to the day when we left and motored out of Penetanguishene Bay and rounded the corner, heading toward Christian Island, right into pitch black clouds.

J99By Katherine Stone

All set to pull out the Code 0 before dousing the jib.

It was a very cold and wet beginning to the summer and we never thought it would arrive in Southern Ontario. Doing a 100 miler race on Lake Ontario (billed as the COOLEST race on the lake) with my 8 layers of thermal clothing, woolen ski toque and ski mittens, along with a neck warmer kept me on the edge all night, just out of frostbite reach. I shouldn’t have complained, as we also had wind!

July and August arrived, and it has certainly warmed up, in fact, its too warm, AND we don’t have wind. We are now counting 5 Wednesday nights in a row without wind to race.

Wellcraft 242 FishermanBy Andy Adams

Boat buyers are gravitating to the latest centre console boats for a wide range of reasons but for the Wellcraft 242 Fisherman, you can sum it up by saying it’s about features, style and value.

This great-looking boat is just as capable on a family picnic cruise as it is doing serious blue water fishing. A wide range of options let the buyer tailor the boat for their specific interests, but it’s all there to choose from. Our test boat was well-equipped for that comfortable cruise with easy access via the swim platform and through the transom gate into the cockpit.

KingstonBy Amy Hogue

Cruise into the city of Kingston, Ontario, and it will quickly become clear that this city and surrounding waterways have something special. Built around the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Kingston is the place to go if you love to explore new waterways, fantastic views, and exceptional boating opportunities.

Sitting at the intersection of three world-class Canadian bodies of water, Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal (Cataraqui River from Kingston to Newboro), the water’s influence is deeply woven into Kingston’s culture and history.
