Bavaria 41

After the Dufour 410 I feel a bit bad in posting about the Bavaria 40. The difference in looks however does not correspond to a difference in solidity or quality and the truth is that the Bavaria interior is functional and better than on the previous model that shared the same Farr hull. The boat sails well and it is the only family cruiser that offers 4 winches on the cockpit (six on the total) and that certainly makes sailing easier especially if one uses a Genoa instead of a self taking jib. We have also to consider that the Bavaria is a lot cheaper than the Dufour and probably will go better upwind.

They say very well about the boat on the boat test, namely that the 41 is a 40 "masterfully developed".

Year the test video, a nice one:

another one, with the also new 37:
