Broker's Comments

Designed for relaxed, comfortable, family sailing, this Bavaria 30 would make an excellent first yacht.

Well equipped for short handed or solo sailing, she comes with in-boom reefing for the main, a furling headsail, lines leading aft to an electric halyard winch in a roomy cockpit, self tailing sheet winches and an auto-helm with an electronic walk around remote.

The accommodation, with four berths, is spacious, bright and well finished. There are opening ports throughout. The forward area of the saloon can either be a comfortable double berth or used as a great storage space for bedding etc.

Moving aft, there is a comfortable seating area with a saloon table and two further large storage cabinets. There is a good sized nav table on the starboard side with a separate heads compartment aft of this. To port, there is a galley with cooker, grill, fridge and a stainless steel sink. The aft cabin has a good sized double berth, ample storage and access to the rear / side of the engine.

There is a comprehensive nav fit in the cockpit that is easily visible from the helm along with a handy transom gate leading out to a large sugar scoop / bathing platform with a hot & cold water shower & fold away swim ladder.

This yacht is built for easy, relaxing, sailing / fun in the sun.
