Bavaria Deep Blue 46 Flybridge is the German firm's first ever flybridge
BMW Designworks USA have had their pencils out once again to help Bavaria create their first ever flybridge, the Deep Blue 46 Flybridge.
It very much looks like part of the avant-garde Deep Blue range with the wrap-around windscreen and spoiler-like radar arch giving a certain retro vibe.
There does seem to be a rather large blind spot thanks to the chunky coaming behind the saloon windows but that might be different when you’re on board – we’ll have to wait and see.
One of the most interesting points is that the only way to the flybridge seems to be via steps in the saloon meaning you lose some living space inside but the cockpit is likely to feel much larger.
On the upper deck the U-shaped seating area dominates but it’s large and good for loafing so a sunpad won’t be missed.
At bed time the owner can retire to the bow where there is a double berth whilst guests are catered for in two twin cabins amidships.
Bavaria have opted for twin Volvo IPS600 engines which we reckon should easily push the Bavaria Deep Blue 46 Flybridge over the magic 30 knot barrier.
A tough part of the market to enter but most of them are these days, looks may divide opinion but we can't wait to get it out on the water.
