Bavaria hopes to have the first new model on the water in September.

Bavaria Yachts has presented for the first time an outboard-powered dayboat measuring 32.81’ (10m). The name of the new model is the Bavaria Vida 33 and early last week, dealers worldwide learned about the new boat in five remote conferences. The Vida 33 comes in open and hardtop versions with a pair of designs for the bow and power is a pair of Mercury outboards.

Prototype Stage

As reported by International Boating Industry News, Bavaria plans to complete the first two hardtop boats for testing in September. The company took over the rights and assets of the Greenline Neo day cruiser in January and with the new model, the Giebelstadt shipyard is now focusing on boats in the 33’ to 66’ (10m to 20m) range. “With its series production, Bavaria is a supplier of inexpensive boats, not luxury boats,” Kai Brandes, CEO of owner CMP, told IBI.

Production of the new model will also start after the traditional European summer break in August. Among the features on the new model are recessed hull windows and maximum living space with a focus on versatility. An L-shaped lounge wraps around a cockpit table and there’s a removable sunpad. The wetbar includes a refrigerator and a gas grille and the galley has lots of space for meal preparation. The swim platform is abaft the outboard motors and is hydraulic. There’s a small cabin forward that sleeps two.

The Vida 33 now gives Bavaria an entry into the popular twin-outboard-powered express cruiser market.

Mercury Power

The Vida 33 will be powered by twin Mercury outboards ranging from twin 150 hp units to twin 300s. A previous model, the Neo Open was powered by twin 200-hp engines that the company says pushed the boat to 42.6 mph (37 knots).
