"Many thanks for everything Wilson. Calico Moon is a joy to sail and was beautifully presented. We had a fabulous week on board and I'd be happy to recommend Sailaway Scotland to anyone. No doubt we will be back for more!"
Campbell McCrory chartered her in June 2021.
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, cockpit chart plotter, AIS, bluetooth stereo including dab radio, saildrive and rope-cutter, plus a full refresh of her upholstery.
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 rather well under power, too!
Note: Calico Moon is a sister ship to Deep Blue, our other Bavaria 46 Cruiser. With two of these beautiful yachts, we can now offer the option to charter them as a pair, which is ideal for larger and/or corporate charter parties.
This Bavaria 46 has a super cruising layout with four generously sized sleeping cabins - 2 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 & spacious linear galley, complete the interior.
With electric windlass, powerful 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 the West Coast of Scotland.
She carries full navigation and safety equipment including AIS, Navtex, EPIRB, radar, autopilot etc; and two GPS plotter displays and DSC VHF units, one of each at the helm and the chart table.

"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."
"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."
"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."
"Thanks again for a good weekend. and a well maintained yacht."
"Wilson, we appreciated the taut and seamanlike nature of the boat - a pleasant contrast to some of the more flabby boats on the Solent!"
"We really enjoyed the week and the boat was excellent. We will definitely come back in future."
"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..."
"The boat was excellent - we would have no hesitation in chartering again."
