“Spacious, friendly... an excellent all-rounder that inspires great confidence and provides both comfort & performance.”
Testimonials. What our Guests say about Deja Vue.
First of all many thanks for arranging our charter of Deja Vue. Everything went according to plan except for the incoming storm on Friday which caused us to return to Oban a day earlier and return yesterday instead of today.
This didn’t spoil our enjoyment as we had some good sailing and the weather in the early part of the week was excellent.
The boat performed well and it’s a credit to the owner for the amount of work put in
keeping the boat in excellent condition.
Thanks to Andy who did a comprehensive hand over last Saturday
and we handed the boat over to Andy yesterday and hope that he found it all in good order.

Deja Vue is a very capable and comfortable cruising yacht; she is easily handled under power and is an absolute joy to sail. She is well suited to the beautiful sailing grounds of the Firth of Clyde and the West Coast of Scotland.Deja Vue underwent a lengthy refit in 2016 and has been exceedingly well maintained and is in great condition.The Bavaria 46 layout is exactly what you would want. She has four generously sized sleeping cabins:- 2 large double cabins aft, an even larger double cabin forward and a decently-sized twin bunk cabin to port. In addition, the starboard saloon seat converts to a single sea-going berth.There are 2 good sized heads fitted with showers.
Deja Vue carries all required navigational aids, plus more. There are, twin chart plotters and DSC VHF radio controls, at both helm and chart table, wind or heading activated autopilot, radar and AIS - both with target tracking.
Above decks, she has full teak decking, electric windlass with deck controls, bow thruster, furling headsail and furling mainsail, with all sail controls led aft to her large secure cockpit. She also boasts powered genoa winches, although in certain cases these are best disabled. Her cockpit is well protected with a generously sized sprayhood and includes cockpit jackstays to enhance safety aboard. Her 55HP engine drives her hull easily through the water via the feathering propeller, which helps enhance her sailing performance.
