One hundred extra man hours have gone into building Bavaria’s new 40 footer. But has it made a difference? Dick Durham reports

Product Overview

Overall rating:



Bavaria 40


Price as reviewed:


She’s a very beautiful boat – elegant, graceful and uncluttered. Some will take issue with the number of windows and hatches, others will welcome them. She sails very well indeed, is easy to handle and benefits from Bavaria’s new beefed-up construction techniques. Below decks she’s bright and roomy and at this price she’s a hard boat to beat. It’s worrying that Bavaria withholds her vital statistics though.
