ive only had 1 experience with bavaria yachts,that was when i bareboat chartered 1 for a long weekend,we booked the 36ft,but it had a prob with the windlass so they had to "unfortuneatly" upgrade to a 42ft''r,hehe no worrys =0)
it sailed fantastically,the storage was great.looked strong enough to me!
my only critisism is the design of some things ie
no storage in the cockpit for your gloves,camera,water bottles etc.
i think they could of done better with the design below,didnt seem as user friendly as a catalina(but no silly flat shelves as on the cat''.
beautiful looking yacht tho'' & if i only had the money........
