"Karm" is perhaps the finest Bavaria Cruiser 42 we have seen in terms of general condition, outstanding presentation (a credit to the owner) and the comprehensive list of quality cruising equipment included. These fine yachts are ideal family coastal cruisers with genuine bluewater capability. They are efficient under sail or motor (55hp Volvo Penta). With twin wheels, a large, sheltered cockpit from where sheets and halyards are managed, an electric halyard winch and a bow thruster "Karm" is equipped for extended cruising and to be comfortably handled by a couple. Below deck, the spacious, mahogany-finished saloon (Webasto heated) is light and bright. The clever layout works with three private cabins, two bathrooms, a serious nav. Station and galley. This is cruising at its best. The current owner has done the work, "Karm" is fully equipped and ready to cruise. This fine yacht represents a rare opportunity.

The layout from stern to bow...
Step aboard via the transom platform and gate. Plenty of space and handholds as you move forward between the twin wheels to the deep, well-sheltered cockpit featuring a large drop-side table with an integrated icebox. With a stainless steel, pushpit mounted BBQ the cockpit is great space for alfresco dining.
Below deck, the windows/ports and large deck hatches flood the saloon with light and ensure good ventilation throughout. The mahogany timber creates a welcoming ambience. Either side of the companionway is the two comfortable private cabins.
Forward to port is the general bathroom with separate shower. The navigation station is opposite to starboard. The galley to port extends to the bulkhead and is strategically located opposite the dinette with its comfortably upholstered U shaped settee (can be used as an occasional berth). There is also seating for two on a midship island settee. Forward of the bulkhead is the owner's cabin featuring a semi-island queen-sized double berth, ensuite and plenty of locker space.
The Webasto ducted heating provides subtle cosiness throughout.
