I am not familar with that particular model, I assume it shares little engineering in common wioht the ill-fated Match 42. There are a number of threads on this board about Bavaria, for example http://www.sailnet.com/forums/buying...sailboats.html.

I would not want to do business with a company that handled the Match 42 disaster the way that Bavaria did.

Certified...in several regards...

If you're not familiar with what Sailingfool is talking about, the Bavaria Match 42 had a slight problem with the design that led to the keel falling off. It ended up killing a few people too. Believe they had similar problems on the 38, but not 100% on that.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The OP has been a member for 7 years and posted three things, all asking the same question about three different boats, but go for it.

My feeble mind tells me the Ocean 42 is a center-cockpit boat, so it's probably unlikely related to the Match 42. Otherwise, I have a good friend who owned a B-36 for several years and loved the boat.

If nothing else, this quy is deliberate in his search for a boat?????

I looked at the Ocean 40 a few years ago. I believe it and the 42 were available in center or aft cockpit confiurations.
