Coupe or Fly Bridge for a medium size boat?

Post by ARPE » Wed Mar 22, 2017 11:15 am

If you are like me you study boat designs and options for a long time before deciding on yours. Here what made me pick the R40 coupe version as opposed to the fly bridge version. Perhaps I started somewhat biased because I already had a Regal 35 coupe. However, after coming to see several boats over the course of a year, I concluded that the coupe was the right choice for me because of the experience my guests and I could get from the saloon and stern sun bathing area.

The coupe in general, and the Bavaria R40 in particular offer the flexibility of offering a open experience or a enclosed experience with a touch of a button. All at the same floor level with all guests and captain interacting with each other. The fly-bridge version of the R40 provides a nice top-level open view experience. However, as it happens with all medium-sized fly bridge boats, the saloon is enclosed and sun bathing at the stern seats is limited by the fly-bridge on top.

In my view these pictures show how Bavaria excelled with two sunroofs and when connecting the saloon to the external sun bathing seats.
