Bavaria easy 9.7 first look video

The Bavaria Easy 9.7 made its world debut at the PSP Southampton Boat Show. Basically a simplified version of the Bavaria Cruiser 33, this video shows the key features of this sailboat.

First the name—it's called "easy" because it's intended to be both easy to sail and easy to buy. Belowdecks you can see where the cost savings comes from: shelving replaces some cabinetry, a drop-leaf table is replaced with a fixed table-top, and the galley is a bit pared-down. For many cruisers or weekenders, these items won't be missed but the money they save will certainly be appreciated.
