2003 Bavaria 49

Canary Islands, Spain


This is a unique opportunity to purchase a highly specified 2003 Bavaria 49 which has been professionally modified, to increase its waterline length for performance purposes. Features include the bow thruster, eberspacher heating and a recent suit of sails.

The upgrade to the bow, which has been extended to increase the waterline length and adjust the bow angle to 11 degrees, increases the performance of the yacht allowing for faster passage making. The works were undertaken in Croatia, to the designs produced by Swedish Naval Architect, Hakan Sodergren. Sodergren is well known for his designs for boat manufacturers such as Finnish Finngulf and Sirena Yachts along with his work on the Swedish America's cup campaign. 

This particular Bavaria 49 has 5 double cabins and 3 bathrooms. She has benefitted from owners who have looked after her well, recent works undertaken include new upholstery, new hatch perspex, a full overhaul of the engine, recent sails and 5 coats of epoxy on the hull.

Now located in the Canary Islands, this Bavaria 49 is fully prepared and equipped to cross the Atlantic later this year. The vendor is willing to assist with a delivery to mainland Europe.
