Countdown to Southampton Boat Show 2021: Bavaria Vida 33

Countdown to Southampton Boat Show 2021: Bavaria Vida 33

Early last year, Bavaria acquired the rights to construct the NEO after Greenline felt the outboard-powered sportsboat didn’t fit in with its eco-friendly message and this is the first time we can see Bavaria’s take on the 36ft sportsboat at a UK show.

The boat, now dubbed the Vida 33, fits neatly into Bavaria’s portfolio which, up until now, has lacked an outboard day boat.

Something that dogged the NEO was its pricing but the Bavaria Vida 33 is available in Open form with twin 150hp Mercury outboards for under £157,000 inc VAT. Not bad when you consider it has a decent cabin below decks and a separate shower room.

Performance won’t be electric with the standard 150s but for a £20,000 premium you can upgrade to the top of the range twin V8 300s for a top speed north of 40 knots.

Galeon 335 HTS: Oustanding boat proves its worth on two-day Solent test


Bavaria has dropped the fully enclosed coupe version from the range, leaving the Open and HT models. Most will go for the latter as, thanks to its sunroof, it offers the best balance of shelter from, and exposure to, the elements.

The main deck is brilliantly suited to sunny days on the water, with flexible seating that converts into a sun pad opposite a wet bar that includes a grill, sink, fridge and some counter space to prepare food.

The foredeck has two layouts; a double sun pad with walkaround or – our preference – C-shaped seating with a table in the middle.

We always liked the Greenline NEO and hopefully, under Bavaria as the Vida 33 with interest in this style of boat at an all time high, it will have the success its clever design warrants.

Bavaria Vida 33 specifications

LOA: 36ft 1in (11.01m)
Beam: 11ft 3in (3.43m)
Engines: Twin Mercury outboards up to 600hp
Top speed: 45 knots
Price from: £149,454 (inc. VAT)

Countdown to Southampton Boat Show 2021: Windy SR44 Blackhawk

The SR44 Blackhawk, a long awaited successor to the wonderful SR52 Blackbird that was launched a decade ago, made its global premiere at Cannes in 2019 but this is a rare opportunity to see Windy’s 50-knot weekender in the flesh on UK soil. The truth is, this being a boat designed for soaking up indecent amounts of sunshine, there probably won’t be many that make their way to dear old Blighty so get down to the 2021 Southampton Boat Show and see it while you can.

Countdown to Southampton Boat Show 2021: Windy SR44 Blackhawk

The SR44 Blackhawk, a long awaited successor to the wonderful SR52 Blackbird that was launched a decade ago, made its global premiere at Cannes in 2019 but this is a rare opportunity to see Windy’s 50-knot weekender in the flesh on UK soil.

The truth is, this being a boat designed for soaking up indecent amounts of sunshine, there probably won’t be many that make their way to dear old Blighty so get down to the 2021 Southampton Boat Show and see it while you can.

Designed by Windy in conjunction with Dubois, Hans Jørgen Johnsen and Design Unlimited, the SR44 Blackhawk is available with Volvo Penta IPS pods, sterndrives and twin and triple outboards including Mercury’s new 600hp V12s for a top speed of 50 knots.

The show boat will be fitted with the largest pair of sterndrives with 440hp per side for a top speed of just over 40 knots.

Pardo 38 yacht tour: Is this the perfect Mediterranean dayboat?

VIDEO: Windy 27 Solano review

A blustery day trip from Lymington to Poole in a Windy 27 Solano is all it takes to fall in


Fast point-to-point journeys is the Windy SR44 Blackhawk’s raison d’etre and no matter what engines you go for, the ability to cruise fast in heavy seas is what sets it apart from many of its more leisure focussed rivals.

The Windy isn’t short of creature comforts however, its main deck is brilliantly suited to long days swinging off the hook.

One key difference between the SR44 Blackhawk and rivals from Solaris, Pardo and Fjord is that you can lose the full walkaround format and have extended seating at the dinette that sprawls out to the starboard side of the boat, creating dining space for 10 people as well as a plumb spot to relax with your feet up.

Below decks the open plan layout is best suited to couples and families but the combination of Design Unlimited decor and Windy fit and finish make for a particularly pleasant interior space.

Windy SR44 Blackhawk specification

LOA: 46ft 0in (14.03m)
Beam: 12ft 10in (3.96m)
Engines: IPS/sterndrives/outboards up to 1,200hp
Top speed: 50 knots
Starting price: Available on application
