Bavaria yachts are made in Giebelstadt, Germany, a county long known for building refined machinery. Formerly known as Bavaria Motor Boats, Bavaria has proven to be a serious competitor in the, largely American, sport yacht market and has even been developing hefty brand loyalty along the way as well. With solid GRP below the waterline, a GRP grid stringer system and all bulkheads glassed to the hull, Bavaria yachts are strong enough to earn a CE category B rating, which, among other things, means that they can withstand gale force winds of Beaufort Force 8 (34 to 40 kts) and wave heights of up to 13’ (4m). But all that is a secondary issue for most of us that are concerned with the luxury and dock appeal that these boats possess.
