Manufacturer Info



The German production sailboat builder, Bavaria Yachts, has been coming on strong in the US in the past two years with new models and an expanding dealer network along the East Coast and in Northern California. Bavaria advertises a factory-direct distribution model so they lay claim to improved cost efficiency and speedier delivery schedules. The Farr-designed models range from 32 to 55 feet and are offered in the Cruiser and Vision series, both of which provide good value. With the recent models, Bavaria stepped up their offering by listening to their owners and dealers and offering more choices in their interior layouts and accommodations. Stern-wide swim platforms, flush hatches, and interiors influenced by the BMW design team are helping these imports, as well as Bavaria's new line of powerboats, gain traction in the US production market.

If you want a 2 cabin, owner's version boat, look elsewhere, but if you want the practicality and flexibility of 3 double and 2 twin cabins, with 3 separate, good sized heads compartments, a cracking big saloon and a decent galley - here she is! This boat has chartered but has genuinely been very well maintained and had a huge refit in 2011. She presents very well indeed. The owner is a realistic seller, open to offers. The company managing her for charter here in St Malo would love to keep her in the fleet and can offer an owner plenty of private use, berthing (almost impossible to find!), jolly good maintenance, and most of the boat's costs covered. Talk to us!

Oui, ce bateau est en location, mais il est vraiment en très bon état, toujours bien entretenu et refait de la girouette à la quille en 2011. Possibilité de continuer en gestion / location à St Malo. Vendeur réaliste pret à négocier.
