Bavaria Deep Blue 46
The Bavaria Deep Blue 46 is a boat totally different from its stylistic canons. The design of this model originated at BMW Group DesignworksUSA, which is a design company not new to the boating world, whose designers have combined some vintage references with excellent interior roominess in a balanced way. The Deep Blue 46 mounts a pair of engines, available in three different power ratings: 325, 330 or 370 horsepower.
A glance on deck makes one forget the urge to go inside. There is a comfortable place for everyone in the cockpit. Aft, in fact, is a semicircular full-beam dinette, with a large table that also serves guests excellently at the two outer ends of the sofa. Another finesse is forward of the cockpit. Here there is something that is much more than a chaise longue, it is a real sundeck, replacing the classic aft one, typical of Mediterranean boats; and at its base a two-seater sofa has been counter-molded, so that, neither the pilot nor those staying on the chaise longue remain excluded from life on board.
Two cabins, two bathrooms, and the furnished saloon with a dining dinette and a kitchen developed on a corner cabinet that looks like the one at home. Here is the subdivision of rooms on the lower deck of Deep Blue 46. All cabins, then, feature a profusion of wood, in true Bavaria style, and soft lighting that creates a warm atmosphere.

Abbate Bruno Primatist G46 Pininfarina Cruise
Those who like big open sports will appreciate the Cruise version of the Primatist G46 Pininfarina. Already known for its strong sporty nature, in this version the boat features a layout with a revised cockpit and the introduction of a galley below deck as its two major innovations. With these features, the Primatist G46 Pininfarina also appeals to that segment of boaters who like to sail not only in summer, but also in cold seasons.
Compared to the classic version, the Primatist G46 Pininfarina Cruise Edition can be recognized at a glance by its fully walkable cockpit and the introduction of a glass door aft of the superstructure.
This solution makes the cockpit extremely modular, so it can be used in a variety of ways, now to set up a dining area, now to create an outdoor lounging area, perhaps with sunbeds, so that you don’t even miss the classic stern sundeck.
The dividing door between the cockpit and salon makes the latter as livable as an underdeck area, but with the added advantage of always being able to enjoy light and views to the outside.
Below deck, the Cruise Edition of the Primatist G46 Pininfarina sees the introduction of a large kitchen cabinet in the saloon, fronted by the dinette. A grill spot remains equally in the cockpit for outdoor dining. The rest of the lower deck offers two en-suite cabins in elegant and customizable settings.

Airon Marine 4800 T-Top
Lots of originality of style and versatility characterize the Airon Marine 4800 T-Top, which offers very modern interiors inside, with colorful lighting effects and a two-cabin layout. The sinuously shaped and almost fully glazed sunroof superstructure is properly integrated with the overall design of the boat. The efficient hull designed by Paolo Molinari accompanies the deck designed by Tommaso Molinari and is equipped with two 435-horsepower IPS engines that, from tests conducted by the shipyard, push the boat up to 35 knots of top speed.
Very large and particularly livable is the cockpit, which is lined with teak and is fitted with a dinette, equipped with an electrically operated telescopic table, which allows for a sunbathing area. The large swim platform, also lined with teak, is easily accessible by means of the stairs cut out on either side of the transom.
In an area that can be separated from the outside, under the hard top we find, in addition to the driver’s station, a chaise longue, sofa and kitchen. The below-deck area is also designed to be differentiated in layout, where two or three cabins can be obtained. In both cases you have a large midships master cabin, with a bed arranged transverse to the keel axis, and a very large VIP forward cabin. What varies according to the preferred layout is the central area, where, in the three-cabin version, the dinette in the saloon is replaced by a compartment with bunk beds. The bathrooms remain two, and the owner’s bathroom is really very large.
