Bavaria 50 Premiers at the Dusseldorf Boat Show

Take a photo tour of the new Bavaria 50 Cruiser.

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 Bavaria 50 had its world premier at Dusseldorf's Boot.

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.
