“Thanks Wilson and Andrew for our charter of Calico Moon. We found her to be a lovely yacht. Easy motion, fast, meticulously maintained and presented, with an excellent handover process. We had a fantastic time, and hope to be back again!”

Brian Campbell, April 2024

Over the past few years Calico Moon has undergone a rolling program of improvements and upgrades including new mainsail, genoa, sprayhood, extra large 3.2m inflatable tender with Honda outboard, AIS, bluetooth stereo including dab radio, saildrive and rope-cutter, cooker, fridge, doubled output central heating system plus a full refresh of her upholstery. Her latest update is a new B&G radar scanner and chartplotter.

Having been built with Bavaria’s extra-cost deep lead keel option, she does sail rather well! Plus, with her powerful bow thruster and and extra-cost 75hp engine option, she goes well under power, too!

This Bavaria 46 has a super cruising layout with four generously sized sleeping cabins - two large double cabins aft, an even larger double cabin forward, plus a decently-sized twin bunk cabin to port. To sleep even more, the dining area in the saloon converts if needed, into a further double bunk. Two generously sized heads/showers, a good sized chart table and a well-equipped and spacious linear galley, complete the interior.

She carries full navigation and safety equipment including AIS, radar, autopilot, chartplotter etc; and two DSC VHF units, one of each at the helm and the chart table.


With electric windlass, 75hp engine, bow thruster, new furling headsail and new main, and all sail controls led aft to her large secure cockpit, she’s as easily handled by a smaller crew as she is comfortable with a larger group. Her large and secure cockpit is well protected with a generously sized sprayhood. She is a great yacht to charter on the West Coast of Scotland.

"Sailaway Scotland were great to deal with in arranging the charter and both handover and return of the boat.  Calico Moon is a well-appointed boat which with the updated engine and bow thruster makes her a joy to manoeuvre in and out of marinas. On the water the deep keel makes her a very seaworthy boat which can be sailed confidently with the in mast reefing main making for ease of handling." Matthew Mears


"..really looking forward to our next charter with Sailaway." Sebastien Jotter


"I must say, I think Largs is a great place to keep a boat for sailing the west coast of Scotland.  If I don’t get my own, I would like to think that we could charter with you again, as we all enjoyed the week immensely."

John Jackson


"Our clients and skipper Stefan Mägli have been very satisfied with their cruise on Calico Moon. I am writing to you to say thank you for your good service. P.S. You have a lovely boat! Thank you."

Vadim Novgorodtsev


"Everything went well - really really nice spacious big yacht... the boat was immaculately clean and in perfect order. We will definitely be using you again if thats OK with you."

John Parkes


"Thanks again for a good weekend and a well maintained yacht."

Simon Arowsmith


"Wilson, we appreciated the taut and seamanlike nature of the boat - a pleasant contrast to some of the more flabby boats on the Solent!"

Phil Lapage


"We really enjoyed the week and the boat was excellent. We will definitely come back in future."

Peter Millican


"We all had a really good time, the boat was comfortable, easy to use, lots of space and really good to sail. We will definitely be going again next year and if possible we would like the same yacht again..."

Colin Brown


"The boat was excellent -  we would have no hesitation in chartering again."
