New Model: Bavaria 43 SportHT

Bavaria continue to update its sport cruiser line, and as it has done in recent years presents the 43 SportHT, the hard top version of 43 Sport model.  Designed by BMW Group DesignworksUSA the 43 SportHT has basically the clever laid plan of the normal open Sport version both above and below decks, and can sleep from six in two cabins, or eight persons in the three cabin optional choice layout.  The cockpit of the 43 is huge, offering an extended bathing platform, aft sun pad, C-shaped dinette, L-shaped settee all to port, and helm with a galley and wet bar behind it to starboard.  This area is up to the dinette covered by the hard top which can nearly all open up.  This makes the 43 SportHT become a very open boat, with the benefits of quick closing the hard top offers.  There is as the standard open version three engine options for the Bavaria 43 SportHT, but I think the gasoline standard power of twin Mercruiser 430hp is very misleading for a boat which has thirteen meters of length and has as its vocation to cruise.
