What a fantastic show! Finally we were able to present our new business and stunning new Cruiser yachts to the US sailing public at the 42nd US Sailboat show. The response and feedback we received was beyond our wildest expectations and for five sun-drenched days we were inundated with people wanting to know more about our ground-breaking yachts, the Chesapeake/Caribbean chartering options and the service packages we can provide.
A buzz quickly spread around the show – Bavaria was back in the US and the new designs looked fabulous! On day one Cruising World dropped by to tell us that all four Cruiser models had been nominated for the prestigious 2012 Boat of the Year (BOTY) award. In addition, the peppy Cruiser 32 and impressive Cruiser 45 had been nominated for Sailing World’s performance orientated BOTY award. An hour later Sail Magazine came along to confirm the nomination of all four models for their Best Boat Award. We had to find space to place all of the stickers and banners but it certainly generated attention. We believe 10 nominations to be unprecedented - twice the number of any other manufacturer!
The vast majority of visitors came to see us after having read all the positive reports the new Cruiser series has been getting in the sailing press. The likes of Cruising World, Sail Magazine and Blue Water Sailing have all commented on the excellent sailing performance of the new yachts, their ease of handling and spacious interiors but now understandably the sailing public wanted to take a look for themselves. They did not go away disappointed and the overwhelming consensus from the hundreds of people who stepped onboard was that the quality of build and finish stood head and shoulders above the competition. “You can see and feel the quality”, “Farr design and German engineering– a winning combination” were comments we heard repeatedly. People also came away believing that the boats represented excellent value. “That is a lot of boat for the money” was a consistent theme with people remarking on the spacious interiors, cockpits and deck in combination with the quality build and finish.
Thank you to everyone who came to see us and for giving us such positive feedback and encouragement on our operation and the boats. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
