|Introduced by the famous French builders in 1997, the Bahia 46 was lighter and faster than her counterparts and quickly established herself as a popular choice for a long range cruising cat and she was also adopted by the charter market. The bridgedeck cabin has the distinctive Fountaine Pajot 'visor' design with the wrap-around window, shaded by the extended roof. The cockpit is large, with a raised helm position, and wrap-around, sociable, seating. The whole yacht has been designed with a very stylish interior and exterior and the sculpted topsides disguise the volume within and give the yacht her great sleek looks.
This particular yacht is owned by a professional yachtsman and all systems are in excellent condition. These later model cats had a rigid bimini section and the interiors were brightened up with the lighter wood colour soles. The cat is in very good working order, just having had routine hull care and a new SD50 drive installed. Note the brand new sails and standing rigging renewal.
The boat is presently in Reunion Island and headed for Madagascar in August. If you fly to view and subsequently buy your flights will be recompensed and also the boat may be delivered to SE Asia free of charge.
