Seller's Description

Bavaria 40 2001. Flag Norway. Owner is Norvegian. Private yacht never used for charter. Dimensions LOA: 40 ft 9 in LWL: 37 ft 7 in Beam: 13 ft 1 in Max Draft: 6 ft 4 in Total: 790 ft Ballast: 5940 lb Displacement: 17420 lb The engine is Volvo penta 50 horse power. Normally it is 35 HP. We have built the boat for living aboard. Extra cabinets in all the sleeping rooms. Air Condition in the summer and heating in the winter. Cockpit tents for winter and summer.

We lifted the boat in last May and did the all maintenance. Antifouling, new anodes and motor maintenances done.

2001 model, 3 cabins. You can have a look at the boat anytime, ready to sail. The last good building from Bavaria Yachts.

Marina contract is good till 07.01.2023 and owner is happy to transfer the contract to the buyer. Location: Finike, Antalya, Turkey Price: 72000 Euro (Negotiable)

Equipment: Owners Comments:

Here is a short list of investments and maintenance in the boat. New fridge a year ago, 1500 Eur. Extra cabinets in all 3 cabins, made from professional boat builders, the one in the front made from Mr. Yueksel in Kas, he is an Gulet builder. New teak in the cockpit, made in Finike. AC for cooling in the summer and heating in the winter. There is also a webasto heater. New solution for the living room. One sofa removed and a built in cabinet. The toilets have holding tanks and new floors, also made from the guy in Kas. New frames for the windows, it looks better than the plastic shit from Bavaria. Have a look at the mirror in the front toilet, it is handmade for the boat. Winter and summer curtains for the cockpit.

The boat has been lifted and painted nearly once a year. In 2013 the boat was cleaned totally down. MY late husband wanted to remove all the old paintings. Everything was fine. The boat was lifted in May this year 2022.

The only thing that is not working properly is the toilet in the front, it is an electrically toilet. The bimini needs some maintenance and sailmaker will repair it. I can not remember anything more at the moment but the thing I know for sure, you can sail the boat and be safe, turn key conditon ready to sail.

Hull Speed

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.


Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

10.03 knots
Classic formula: 8.02 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
16-20: good performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.


SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
<40: less stiff, less powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.


Ballast / Displacement * 100

<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
100-200: light

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.


D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
20-30: coastal cruiser

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.


Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.


CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
