Following the successful premiere of the Vision 46, Bavaria presents the latest addition to the new Vision line.

The new Vision 42, which benefits from the same features and innovations as its big sister, will be premiered at the Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes which takes place next week. Busfield Marine is now pleased to be able to release technical details and price information for this stunning 42-foot yacht.

Christine Bird, Sales Manager at Busfield Marine, thinks that the Vision 46 and this new model the Vision 42 set a new standard in the owner’s cruiser category, with a focus on high-end elegance, comfort and easy handling. 'The new Vision Series offers features that were, until now, only seen on mega yachts,' she says.

'The unique cockpit design with offset companionway allows for a large port cockpit table that can be electrically lowered and converted to a day/lounging bed – is truly versatile and stylish, and not yet seen in another production cruiser class.'


The optional push button self tacking system makes single and short-handed sailing a pleasure. Additionally, Bavaria’s docking system employs drop-down bow and stern thrusters, coordinated with the main engine for complete control and accuracy in tight quarters.

Below deck, a generous lounge area affords additional comfort. Two comfortable cabins and intelligent interior organisation make the Vision 42 a luxury cruiser yacht. It has high-quality, functional furnishings throughout and can sleep up to six persons.

The Vision 42's many unique handling features and elegant interiors combine with Farr Yacht Design's engineering for fast and comfortable passages. What is striking about this yacht is the attention to detail along with the premium build quality and finish found in all Bavaria Yachts.

All combined, the Vision 42 is a stunning boat that is sure to draw attention wherever she drops her hook. The perfect yacht for owners with high expectations. The price is also bound to please … remarkably good value at only $335,000*, here in NZ with GST & duty paid and loaded with ‘Kiwi’ and ‘factory’ packs.


The team at Busfield Marine believe the new Vision series has huge potential in New Zealand and are very keen to get a 42 and 46 here. They are looking for owners in the Auckland area that would allow them to use their boats for Boat Shows and to demonstrate to potential clients. Any interested parties can expect a very favourable deal on their new boat.

Give Christine or Colin at Busfields a call on 09 302 1220 to discuss the details of this attractive offer.

Can World Sailing learn from dear old Oz?
Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint Some time ago now, Sail-World proposed that ISAF had a really good opportunity at hand when it morphed into World Sailing (WS). Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint, when you could bring out the jackhammers and do a proper reno??? A call was issued for 200,000 sets of goggles and earmuffs to be supplied and for the real work to be commenced.

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
