Bavaria was founded 32 years ago and is one of the largest builders of fiberglass powerboats in Europe. Before the Great Recession, the company was building about 3,000 boats a year, both power and sail, and has built over 30,000 boats since its founding. It is an industry leader when it comes to the use of robotics, five-axis routers and other SOTA boat-building techniques. The company has recently been recapitalized and while Bavaria powerboats are not currently being old in the U.S., it is carefully watching Beneteau’s progress in the states. Since 85% of its production is exported from Germany we guess it is only a matter of time until Bavaria yachts are offered here. However, the Bavaria 42 express is available in much of the rest of the world in both open and in hardtop versions.
