Bavaria 340 - quality product with a strong hull
Dating from 1988, this was Bavaria’s first major success in Britain, although she was a very different type of boat to today’s models. More expensive than a Westerly Storm 33, she was a quality product with a strong but light foam-cored hull and a well-crafted interior. This was offered in a Lagoon (owner’s) version with one aftercabin or Caribic (charter) format with two.
The wraparound dinette was offset to port and the longitudinal galley was to starboard. She had a wing or fin keel but performance was not particularly sparkling. Deck gear was also a size smaller than the competition.
