Bavaria 44 - sharp look and good performance
This was the first Bavaria by J&J Designs, which in 1993 was tasked with giving the range a sharper look and better performance.
J&J introduced bulbed keels and a more efficient rudder design and a sleeker, lower hull profile. The Bavaria 44 is a big yacht in all respects, with six berths in three cabins including a suite forward and a second heads aft. The saloon is not ideally arranged for offshore use but works well in harbour. A charter-orientated Holiday version was also offered, but it tends to fetch lower prices today.
