Transportation design is a fairly broad field, but things seem to be coming closer together with automotive stylists trying their hand at designing boats and even naval architects delving into car design. The latest example brings two Bavarian companies coming together to offer the very best in motoryacht design.
The Bavaria Deep Blue 46 has been penned by DesignworksUSA, a subsidiary of Bavarian Motor Works (BMW). The design features a wide 4½-meter beam to better accommodate the pleasure-seekers on board, with ample sun lounges, wide passageways fore and aft and sufficient space beneath the decks to retreat from the elements. The vessel, which is the studio's second venture into the water following the Zeydon Z60 sailing yacht, is being shown to the public for the first time at the Düsseldorf Boat Show, currently under way on the banks of the Rhine river in northern Germany.
