We have a new Bavaria 45 and a 32 here in town at the local dealer.. haven't been aboard but the outside appearance is not at all appealing.. blocky and ugly to my eye too, so I agree with you, Paulo. I wonder how much Farr had to do with the deck or did they simply provide hull lines.....

I'm too much of a traditionalist, I suppose, and I like my rounded moldings, and other things 'nautical'.. to me some of these new boats are simply too linear.. you'd be forgiven for thinking you're looking at a kitchen display in an Ikea catalogue. But I'll concede they probably go really well for the most part!
