The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.

Owners Comments

We looked at a lot of boats, but we fell in love with the Vison 46 the first time we saw one. Before buying, we researched extensively. The Cruising World Boat of the Year award and Sail Magazine reviews (search for Cruising World Bavaria Vision 46 and Sail Magazine Vision 46) were great, but to be sure we chartered a Vision 46 in the BVI’s before buying.

Our actual experience has lived up to what we hoped. As you can see from the specs we extensively customized the boat. The 3 custom features which have most contributed to our enjoyment are the davits, air conditioning and watermaker. We would be happy to answer any questions through our broker.
