Welcome aboard the VIRTESS 420 FLY, where you will have the wind in your hair on the flybridge, as if you were at the wheel of a convertible, the ambience of a fine dining restaurant on the aft deck, the lustre of a suite at a 5-star hotel in the saloon and in the three cabins, and driving dynamics of a luxury class sports car.
A breath-taking sense of space below deck and stylish design above deck is what make the VIRTESS line such a unique motor yacht in the premium segment.
The VIRTESS line has received a number of awards and prizes to date – testament to well thought out quality and intelligent detail solutions. Thus, for example, the flybridge version of the VIRTESS line won the "European Powerboat of the Year 2013" award in the category of yachts up to 45 feet in length – with its nearly identical sister, the VIRTESS 420 COUPE, also going home with the same award. This award is granted by the leading motor boat magazines in Europe and regarded as the Oscar of water sports. The VIRTESS line owes the timeless design of its interiors and exteriors to Italian star designer Marco Casali's agency TOO DESIGN. The design comes from the renowned Spanish design firm for mega yachts, INSENAVAL, which also designed the BAVARIA SPORT line.


BAVARIA's design team was not satsifed with merely focussing on spatial design on the aft deck of the VIRTESS 420 FLY. The expectations that today's yacht owners have of their yacht these days are too diverse. Lunch for two, driving the family to a seclude bay for a swim, dinner with a party of good friends – to have all this, you need flexibility. Thanks to an innovative track system, tables and benches on the aft deck of the VIRTESS 420 FLY can be moved around to accommodate any occasion. Inside there is a spacious and light-filled saloon area with a generous seating area and an equally flexible and adjustable saloon table.


Flybridge: The VIRTESS 420 FLY has an impressively large flybridge with a driver's seat for two people. Next to it is a comfortable sun lounger, which can be folded down to creat an additional passenger seat. Instruments, chart plotter and all important switching functions are arranged ergonomically at the helm of VIRTESS 420 FLY and can be read easily even in bright sunlight. The spacious sitting area on the flybridge has everything you need for a relaxing aperitif before dinner – including a wet bar and refrigerator.

Driving dynamics

From the moment when you are controlling the VIRTESS 420 FLY's powerful drives with a few small movements of the joystick to steer her out of the marina, you realise with just how much precision a VIRTESS can be manoeuvered. Once you have passed the breakwater and unleashed the full power of the engines of a VIRTESS 420 FLY, the ride is quite an experience. The two engines of a VIRTESS 420 FLY are from Volvo Penta and can be optionally supplied as Z-drive or IPS drive of 370-435 hp each. Cost-effectiveness, performance and ease of maintenance are just a few qualities attributable to Volvo Penta engines.
