Moving forward, the straight-line galley, with a three-burner stove and oven, and double sinks with handy covers, is to port. To starboard, a long U-shaped settee wraps around the generous dining table; there’s also an “island” seat in the middle of the boat. The owner’s cabin is in the bow, and includes a large double berth, a second enclosed head, lots of storage space and a bench seat for dressing. The Bavaria representative claimed this “master bedroom” was the biggest in its class of recent 40-footers, and he’s probably right. It’s certainly a comfortable, spacious compartment.
