Bavaria Yachts introduced a brand-new sailing yacht at the 2011 ´Boot´boat show in Düsseldorf, Germany. The new Bavaria 50 Cruiser, designed by Farr Yacht Design of the US, fills the gap between their 45 and 55 foot Cruisers, with a performance hull, spacious deck and well-lighted interior.
The 50 Cruiser is available with five or four cabins, both options featuring three heads and an optional separate shower. A four cabin layout with four heads and separate shower will follow in Spring 2011.
