Bavaria Project DA10: First detailed renders revealed
Motorboat & Yachting: The German boatbuilder has revealed details of the Bavaria Project DA10 ahead of its planned Spring 2016 launch.
Bavaria Yachtbau has released detailed renderings of its upcoming new arrival, which is being developed under the codename Project DA10 and features a number of bold new ideas.
For this 40ft semi-displacement design, Bavaria has teamed up with Netherlands design firm Vripack and the Dutch influence is clear to see.
Project DA10 will feature single-level walkaround side decks and a saloon that is almost entirely encircled by glass.
Both flybridge and sedan versions will be available with a lower helm that is situated in the centre of the boat, towards the rear of the saloon.
Below decks, owners will have a choice of a two or three-cabin layout, with the former boasting a full-beam master suite and VIP forecabin.
However, those who want to maximise their capacity can opt to have two crawl-in double berths in the rear, as well as a V-shaped twin cabin in the bows.
Out in the cockpit, the DA10 will feature a large wrap of outdoor seating and a staircase that folds out of the transom moulding.
Engine options are by Volvo Penta, ranging from 75hp to 300hp, and Bavaria explains that Project DA10 has been “designed not for speeding, but on economical cruising, safety, comfort and a travelling in harmony with nature”.
Further details and an official model name for Project DA10 are due to be announced in January at the 2016 Boot Dusseldorf exhibition, ahead of its planned Spring 2016 launch.
