German engineering shines through, in the new Bavaria Virtess 420.
31st October 2013. By Lenny Rudow
A new line of powerboats from Bavaria drew our attention at the Cannes boat show this summer, so we shot a First Look video of the 420 Coupe. It didn’t take long to find out that the German engineering which makes their cars so different from those built in the US is just as evident in their boats. Most interesting is the cockpit furniture. It shifts, slides, and locks together – or comes apart – so you can essentially customize the cockpit for every different cruise. See some of the other surprising features, in our First Look video.
The best feature of the Bavaria Virtess 420? Its modular approach to seating.
