Manufacturer Provided Description
Laid on the keel by experienced builders and designers, the Bavaria 47 is built and fitted out with the best components in order to meet the demanding expectations of passionate sailors. She is thought through to the smallest detail, functional in her handling. Naturally, a first-class yacht has expensive fittings and well thought-out detail solutions. Many components are made-to-measure at the yard, or manufactured to highest precision by carefully selected suppliers. This build quality guarantees high residual value. The interior finish of this yacht is on a level which has up to now been reserved for the most expensive yachts. Additionally, considerable design consideration is given to the safety aspect. The interior fittings consist of rich solid mahogany and beautifully laminated solid curves into the back of which hand holds have been integrated. The construction at crucial points is beyond the regulations by Lloyds. This increases safety at sea, increases the stability of value and makes living on board more comfortable. Sandwich laminate technology such as that used in the aircraft industry and on ice-breaking boats is used in the above-water hull and in the deck. The sandwich layer is of water-repellent closed-cell foam to increase the dent-resistance of the shell. Its low heat conductivity prevents condensation and makes the interior climate more pleasant. Kevlar fabric, the material of which bullet-proof jackets are made, is worked into the forebody below the waterline to protect against collision. The doubled laminate thickness of the keel flange triples the safety factor in case of impact. The floor timber is reinforced by stiff S-glass layers. The laminate is watertight and prevents osmosis.

Engine & Transmission
Engine:Volvo Perkins MD 22P, 59 hp/44kW
Transmission:Volvo 120S-D Saildrive
Excellent access to engine.
Corrosion Protection: The standard method for zinc anode protection of an aluminum Saildrive ‘leg’ is a split circular anode around the drive shaft. This has been modified by bolting a large plate zinc to the hull which is wired directly to the transmission inside the boat. This design has two advantages: (1) the zinc lasts a long time because of its mass; (2) replacing the zinc by a diver is simple; it is attached by two (2)¾” nuts. [See photographs]
Propeller:Max Prop feathering propeller. brass (17 in/43 cm)
Spare standard aluminum Volvo propeller
Note: This is a competition/racing propeller that is also efficient for cruising. Propeller Corrosion Protection: A standard 70 mm cone anode is used. This is also easily changed by a diver.
