Bavaria Virtess 420 Fly pozzetto 9

Bavaria Virtess 420, german with an Italian heart

Cooperation between Bavaria and the Italian Too Design of Marco Casali gave birth to a very well balanced boat, though not rivolutionary.

Flybridge and cockpit, a spot for every occasion

The sundeck is a world on its own, and once up there you would never step down. The second helm station is as complete as the deckhouse one, while on the starboard a small couch becomes a sunpad by just tilting the backrest. Astern, a complete dinette offers seats, a table, and a cabinet with refrigerator, grill and sink.
The cockpit is the cornerstone of this Virtress 420: thanks to the versatility of the benches, which slide on a rail, it can change in shape and meet different needs.
Quick note: if you go for the sliding couches, you have to opt for the Duradeck (synthetic teak) or the simple fiberglass deck, as real teak cover would get scratched and torn by the movement.
The layout of the main salon is simple and rational: dinette, TV cabinet, galley. On the lower deck the master cabin is to the bow and has its own en-suite. Other guests find accommodation in two double cabins and share one head.

The test: comfy cruise, low consumption

The first sensation is positive, despite the rather small engines. We are in Andora, Liguria, where the Italian dealer M3 Servizi Nautici is based. The sea is calm and there’s just three of us aboard. We plane quickly and rev up to 3,000 and 26 knots, where the fuel consumption is some more than 100 litres per hour. Using the trim tabs we can reach 3,400 rpm and 32 knots, with a request of 156 l/h of diesel. The sterndrives give a full maneuverability, while the steady hull never lacks confidence, following our inputs even in sharp turns.
