Record sales of more than 160 yachts were announced by BAVARIA YACHTS at boot Düsseldorf at the end of January. More trade fairs in Istanbul, Miami, Tulln, Frederica, Helsinki, Dubai, Moscow and Stockholm followed in February and March. With overwhelmingly positive signs, as the BAVARIA YACHTS Sales team reports.
Stefan Klaassen, Head of Sales BAVARIA YACHTS: "This year’s boot, under the motto BAVARIA WORLD was a huge success for BAVARIA YACHTS. With a total of 24 catamarans, sailing yachts and motor boats on almost 4,000 sqm of exhibition space in halls 15 and 17, it was by far the largest stand at this year’s boot. In conjunction with our national and international partners, the BAVARIA WORLD opened on the first day of the show with two premieres. With our new flag ship of the sailing yacht flotilla, the BAVARIA C57, and the new and luxurious motor boat BAVARIA R40 COUPE, we have set new standards and will continue on this path in the future. The whole team is proud of what it has achieved. Our aim is to create the best possible quality of life on the water for our customers, and we hope to build on this positive trend in the future."
