Wauquiez does something similar... and other manufacturers are following suit - I think the newest Benes have something like this as well.
Shame that Bavaria has produced an otherwise rather ugly boat, though.... (JMO...)
Another issue with Bavaria is that the ladder is now a separate piece that needs stowing, and won't float very well of fumbled while attempting to insert it into the platform. Without the ladder the platform is actually quite high above the water for small dinghy/kayak in-and-out.
