Bavaria 44

Brief details

Builder

Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH, Germany

Built from 2002 to 2004, the Bavaria 44 is essentially the same boat as the 2004 onwards Bavaria 46, and in fact is almost 46 ft in length! It is a high-volume cruiser aimed primarily at the charter market, although an 'owners' version with single, larger aft cabin was also produced. Secondhand prices for Bavarias are often distorted due to so many of these boats being ex-charter exampes, also by Bavaria's continual lowering of new model prices - the larger Bavaria 46 was offered new at £123,000 inc VAT in early 2007. Also, boats of this size are not often used as privately owned family cruisers, due to practical considerations such as mooring charges, and hence there are fewer private buyers than for smaller sized Bavaria models, which continue to be very popular as private boats.

Bavaria 44

Designed by J & J Designs in collaboration with Bavaria GmbH, the Bavaria 44 is a high-volume modern cruiser with lots of internal space for a large family or group cruising.

The GRP hull has Divinycell closed cell foam sandwich above the waterline and in the deck moulding, whilst the underwater parts are solid GRP, kevlar-reinforced around the bow. Various options are offered, the example illustrated here having the standard iron bulbed fin keel, but an uprated 7/8 fractional triple-spreader rig with fully battened main.

In the four-cabin version of the Bavaria 44 the master cabin is the double-berth forecabin.
Aft of this is the forward heads, and a small cabin with two bunks.
Aft are two mirror-image aftcabins, and another heads compartment

Right: the Two-berth cabin forward.

The Bavaria 44 interior is finished in sapele mahogany veneers, over marine ply and composite materials, with lots of solid mahogany trim, giving a very attractive and traditional look. The interior is really spacious, with wider than usual doors to cabins

The twin wheels make handling much easier, and allow a walkway through to the boarding platform aft.
