New Bavaria 37

On another thread I said that a new Bavaria 40 would probably come up soon with a new style on the the interior and on the outside, a better one following the trend they started on the Visions and on the Cruiser 56.

I thought that it would sense for then to use the hull of the actual boat since it is a good one, designed by Farr and that had proven well even in top match racing (with a special version with the same hull but lighter).

Well, it seems I was right. They are offering now the 40 and the 36 in a limited edition. I guess it is a limited one because they will stop to make those models

In fact it seems the first one it will be the 37. It looks to me the 36 hull or at least one not very different but I can be wrong since I could not find any dimensions neither a top view, but the news are good:

The boat looks a lot better than the previous 36, it maintains the 4 winches on the cockpit and two over the cabin (the Bavarias are the only ones that offer that on mass produced cruisers) and the front sail has a small car over the cabin and that means the possibility to go really close to the wind. It is possible that they can offer as an option a bigger car for a genoa over the cockpit.

The interior has the same type of finish and style we found on the 56 but I hope they correct that interior on the boat.

The cabinets look too small, they are not aligned with the ones over the galley the white surface is way too big (on the saloon) and the port hull too small regarding what is offered by the competition and regarding what most sailors want.

Anyway a big improvement in what regards looks over the previous boat that had a quite impersonal interior and looked fat on the outside.

One for the girls.

Some real sailing can save you a lot in fitness and gym classes. Look at the way Emma keep herself fit:



Just to look at her I am feeling tired

Emma is an American girl, and a very nice one I would say:

All Harken deck ware, with Selden mast, boom and blocks, properly sized, decent bow roller. Very high quality interior. I think they will do well. I compared the quality on the j379 to a new Beneteau Oceanis 41 and have to say that I felt the Jeanneau was a cut above. That is not to say that I didn't like the Oceanis 41.

Cheers

Agreed! That Dehler 38 is BEAUTIFUL. Odd. I find myself much more attracted to boats with a modern styled interiors with a good blend of materials (wood, fiberglass, metal, etc.)......But I would not lean towards a house with modern styled interior. Go figure. .....i must be a gemini.

Hi! David,

Last time I have heard about Salona they were doing great and were finishing this one:



But that absence on the Croatia boat show is puzzling so....what about those rumors?

Paulo

Hi Paulo

There was a suggestion that Salona were in trouble financially and that this had been the case for some time. I don't know how reliable this was. Could be speculation. Surely though you would support your own boat show in your own country?

I was wanting to see the Salona 35 and 38.

A difficult industry to make money in for sure

Hi David.

Unless they had a serious disagreement with the boat show organizers. That story of economic trouble is kind of odd since that boat show is not only in their country but in their home town so the costs of having boats there would be minimal. if you wanted to see the boats you could as well went to the shipyard that is in Salona on the industrial zone of split.

They have been recently (less than a month) in a boat show in France ( Port Camargue) with the 35 and 41 and for what I can tell the boats are selling well in North of Europe. Some months ago in Dusseldorf I meet and talked with Nenad, their sales responsible and they had plenty of commands.

Very intriguing in fact, but as you say it is very hard to survive with a strong competition and a depression in Europe.

Regards

Paulo

Class40

It finished some days ago the 40 class first real rof the year, the Normandy Channel Race and it was won...by a German boat with a mixed team (duo race) but with the skipper being German,the increasingly popular Jörg Riechers that was racing with the French Pierre Brasseur.

Class40, initially a French thing, as initially almost all Solo or short crew ocean racing, is becoming international with lots of new boats coming in. In that race there was sailors from New Zealand, Great Britain, German, South Africa, Norway, Swiss and US. Lots of women too. The French are still the majority but they are not alone neither they winning all the times

If you are interested in solo racing and particularly in 40 class racing here it is this year's program:

Class40 - Association skippers Class40 - Races

Being the big classics "LES SABLES - HORTA" and most of all the "TRANSAT JACQUES VABRE".

It would also be interesting to see if the interest of US boats in the American race is renewed or even increases, I am talking about the "The Atlantic Cup", that starts in Charleston (2013-05-12) and finish in Newport (2013-05-26).

Class40 - Association skippers Class40 - Home

In between some nice images of the delivery of one of the new class 40:

Magnus Olsson died.

One of the great sailors and a mythical figure on the VOR died suddenly. He was working as a coach for the girl's team on the next VOR.

an homage:

Thumbs up A strange sense of humor, or the impossible race

MOVIE:

Aak gegen X

I used to see those funny traditional boats, with their lateral swing keels, on the North of Germany and Holland but honestly I never saw thought they could go any faster: They are too fat, or at least I thought they were.

Now I understand why there are so many recovered and used as cruising boats.

Very interesting stuff...but an impossible race anyway

I would like to see the same race with simple dacron sails on the X... The Aak uses cotton...
