MANUFACTURER REMARKS: Beautiful Styling, elegant design interior accents and a spacious interior assures live aboard families, luxurious space and comfort. Although an extremely comfortable home afloat, the Bahia has not sacrificed her seaworthiness. Bred from a racing heritage she was designed by sailors for sailors. . A high and smooth bridge deck, aerodynamically optimized hull and deck shapes guarantee fast and safe ocean passages. Her high tech, yet proven composite structure result in a very strong and stiff platform. Lightness and strength are achieved by conservative engineering and an all vacuum bagged construction. BROKERS COMMENTS:  This vessel has just undergone a major re-fit - and is the best value in a Catamaran on the market - Sheis a luxurious, well speced out cruising cat. Laid out with 4 cabins and 4 heads, equipped with generator, air conditioning, chart plotter and many other options this yacht offers fantastic space and comfort. Her recent refit brings her up to excellent condition and makes this boat a good value.  Priced extremely competitively, this yacht will sell quickly.
