The Bavaria 34 is actually closer to 36 ft overall rather than 34 ft, and in the words of 'Practical Boat Owner' magazine, is ".... an ideal starter boat for a young family, as well as an easy to handle cruiser for a mature couple often cruising alone." This 2001 example has been in the same private ownership since 2007, and is for sale now as the owners are making less use of her than formerly.

The Bavaria 34 was introduced in 1999 as one of a series of models ranging from 32, 34, 36 and 38 ft. All of these were actually well over a foot longer overall than the nominal size - ie the Bavaria 34 is actually 35' 5" overall. The Bavaria 34 was sold with two interior options, twin aft double cabins primarily for the charter market, and the 'owners' version with a single aft cabin. This yacht is the twin aft cabin version, and was owned for five years from new by a sailing school, and then bought by the present owners, who liked the extra berths for family use.
The design is by J & J Design and is predates the ultra broad stern era of later designs, but this gives an elegant yet modern appearance - 'Yachting Monthly' described her as ".... She's also quite pretty, looks woody and well built below".
The hulls are hand-laid GRP with kevlar reinforcement at the bow. Bavaria at that time were building 3,500 boats a year and used a lot of automation in the build process.
Many of these models were bought for charter use both in the UK and especially in the Mediterranean, and charter operators need boats that withstand rough treatment.
She has a 7/8ths rig and this boat is fitted with conventional slab reefing with a battened main and stackpack and lazyjacks. All lines are led back to the cockpit, and with an electric windlass for the anchor,
this makes her very easily handled.
