BLUE MAGIC is a fine example of the well-known Bavaria combination of comfort and sailing performance. Her careful owner has decided to retire from the maintenance demands of yacht ownership. In a 2000 review of the Bavaria 42 model Bob Perry of Sailing Magazine commented, "The fractional rig pushes the mast forward, and in this case, it moves the mast out of the middle of the main cabin and nestles it up against the forward bulkhead. From a sailing perspective the big sail is now on the boom and easily handled, especially if you go with a Leisure Furl boom, my favorite new piece of gear. With the mast and center of pressure of the mainsail forward, you can probably sail this boat reasonably well under mainsail alone, if you are feeling lazy. The spreaders are swept 18 degrees."
