The Bahia 46 is the result of collaboration between Bay Yacht Charters and the builder. She is available in many configurations, with up to four double cabins and four heads. In the owner's version, the entire starboard wing is a private suite. The owner's bed is the "island" type accessible from two sides. The forward cabin is customizable as a lounge - office or walk-in dressing room - closet. The galley-up design facilitates keeping in touch, so no one is buried in a hole. It lets the cook be in one of the lightest, airiest parts of the boat. The galley can be split so the upper portion is more of a bar - serving area with dishwasher, ice maker and the like, while the main food preparation galley is located down. Additional storage, pantry and utility spaces can be designed in below to accommodate liveaboards who require fewer cabins and more storage. The bridgedeck navigation station has room for elaborate offshore instruments around the chart table. The Bahia 46, like every Fountaine Pajot, is built to the highest ISO 9002 European standard for offshore yachts, incorporating vacuum-bagging construction and careful hand lay-up with sophisticated high strength resins which results in an extremely high strength to weight ratio while maintaining tremendous abuse strength. Her keels are fixed and filled with foam, protecting the rudders and shafts. Should they strike a reef or submerged object they harmlessly break away without allowing water intrusion. Fountaine Pajot catamarans use nets forward and eliminate weight in the forward hulls to prevent pitching and aid bow recovery in heavy seas. Flat deck spaces, and especially the relatively flat coach roof, make it comfortable and easy to move around and handle sails. A unique, patented feature is the eyebrow overhang of the coach roof over the window areas. This prevents the high sun from creating a greenhouse effect inside the boat.
