The Bavaria E40 Fly offers full displacement cruising and an aft cabin in a neat 40ft package, Jack Haines gets to grips with it in the Solent
Take a look inside
This particular boat had the two-cabin layout, though you can split the aft double into a pair of twins if you need more sleeping space or intend to use the boat for charter.
As an owner the twin cabin boat delivers space and privacy that few rivals can live with aside from the likes of the more expensive offerings from Broom, Westwood and Haines. In this guise both cabins have comfortable double beds and ensuite access to their own bathrooms. Those using the forward cabin benefit from a split shower room and toilet, too.
The rivals mentioned above won’t be having sleepless nights about the quality of the internal fit out just yet but it’s attractive, robust and built to last if lacking in lustre.

If you can accept cruising at 10 knots then there is a lot to like about the E40. The living spaces are excellent and it's rare to have two such good cabins on a 40ft boat plus it's relatively good value and should prove cheap to run
