I own a Bavaria 44. Have owned it for the past 8 years. I have cruised it extensively in the Med with all kids of weather. I am very happy with my boat and wold not change it with any other boat. She handles very well in any weather. There is plenty of room for living on board. I have had no problems of any kind and in 8 years there has been only the need of normal maintenance. No extras! You can't say that of many production boats!
Of course, due to her price, her internal details are not the same as those of an Oyster or a Hinckley, but also her price is different. You get a great boat for what you pay for that will take you blue water sailing in comfort and safety .
