The commissioning team at Opal Marine on Hayling Island took great delight last week in handing over their 100th Bavaria 36 since the design was officially launched at the 2001 Southampton Boat Show.
Following a day of testing and learning about their new boat with the Opal team, the new owners of boat 100, Frank and Pamela Margrave, departed for a shake down cruise to Cornwall where they intend to enjoy their time cruising and racing in the Fowey regatta.
Frank is a senior lecturer in the Electronics and Computer Engineering Department of Portsmouth University, so he was keen to add his own carefully selected electronics package to the Bavaria. "The Opal team have provided superb service to us during the build up to take over as we had a number of special requirements to fulfil. We first saw the 36 at the 2001 Southampton Boat Show, then renewed our interest at this years London Show, we have now named her Therapy which is exactly what she provides!" remarked a very satisfied Frank.
The Bavarian Minister for Economic Affairs has recently named Bavaria Yachts as one of the most successful companies in the region. This accolade has been helped by the dedication of the Opal Marine team who provide the customer face of the company in UK.
