Combining three decades of experience with cutting edge production technology, Bavaria Yachtbau in Germany builds all Bavaria yachts to Ocean category “A” standard (the highest European standard CE certification) and to the even more exacting Germanischer Lloyd certification which requires independent surveying at all stages of the yacht building process.
The new range has larger beams, topsides, keels and mast sections. The larger framing is glassed into the hull with generous glass tabbing. Bulkheads are similarly tabbed into the frames and deck-head ensuring a strong yacht. The hull and boat hydro dynamics designed by Farr Yacht Designs offset any impact on performance that one might expect from the extra displacement. You can test sail a Bavaria and meet with the experts at Bavaria Yachts USA, Annapolis, MD or see them at the US Sailboat Show, Annapolis, October 6 – 10, 2011.
