The Bavaria Cruiser 46 is a family-friendly, cruising-friendly vessel, with spacious cockpit & interior, wide side decks and drop down transom for easy access to and from the water. The Farr designed hull, shoal draft, tall rig (this boat is not ICW capable) and classic mainsail make this a superb performance cruiser. This is a 3 or 4 cabin, 3 head version. It is currently set up as a 3 cabin, with a huge V-berth forward. A forward bulkhead can be installed to transform the V-berth into 2 comfortable double cabins.

It was in charter in the BVI until 2021, where it saw ‘light duty’ thanks to Covid and was sailed up to the US during the summer of 2022. Hakuna Matata III is in the water in Hayes, VA.

Hakuna Matata has numerous upgrades:

Aerogen 6 Wind Generator

This boat will see you sailing in style!



The salon is light and spacious, with excellent head room and plenty of space for a large crew to move around comfortably.  The lateral galley is to port and the dinette to starboard.  A central storage cabinet can convert to amidships seat, providing ample seating for crew or guests at the table. 

The guest cabins are aft – two double cabins with storage and an en-suite head w/ new faucets (2/23).  The heads can be accessed from the Salon as well as from each cabin. 

The bow of the boat is accessed through a door from the salon, step into a vestibule with a private shower to port and a separate head and basin to starboard.  There are 2 doors into the bunk area.  If the boat is set up in the 4-cabin configuration, with the bulkhead in place, each cabin has a door and they share the bathroom accommodation.  If it is set up in the 3-cabin configuration, the bunk is a large v-berth and the cabin has 2 doors.

*The partition is available, so that the forward area can be converted to 4 cabins if required.
