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.
