The October issue comes out today featuring our 'Battle of the Bulge' boat tests of the Bavaria 45 and Elan 444. Here's a video teaser of the latter

For base prices starting at around £125k, you can buy a new 45ft yacht with a volume that beggars belief. In the October issue (out today), we show the results from trials on two such boats: the Bavaria 45 and the Elan Impression 444.

This video shows us sailing the 444 off Portoroz on the short Slovenian coastline. For a voluminous boat, she moves well on the water – but find out our full thoughts of both boats in the new Yachting World issue.
