Quality always is the sum of many clever solutions. But only high‐quality processing together with high‐quality materials and components make this quality durable. Each BAVARIA is the result of longtime experience and state‐of‐the‐art innovations.
Seaworthiness is a non‐negotiable quality on a BAVARIA motor yacht; among other characteristics, a high‐sided hull ensures that this demand is satisfied. With a SPORT or VIRTESS you don’t only drive safely, you also feel secure when moving around on these boats – this is due to broad gunwales and a railing that extends from bow to stern. The excellent, cost‐effective and safe driving characteristics of a SPORT or VIRTESS can be attributed to the architects of Insenaval SL, who are also responsible for the stylish design of the SPORT line. The VIRTESS line owes the timeless design of its interiors and exteriors to Italian star designer Marco Casali’s agency TOO DESIGN. Isophthalic acid (IPA) resins in the outer layers, used during the laminating process, ensure that the hull of a BAVARIA is of the highest quality. These offer effective protection against osmosis and thus promote longevity of the BAVARIA. The hull and deck of a BAVARIA is made of sandwich construction with foam inserts.
BAVARIA is one of the world’s most innovative shipyards, working with the best suppliers of engines – such as MerCruiser and Volvo Penta – to equip our motor yachts with cost‐effective and powerful engines. We were one of the first shipyards to use Volvo Penta’s modern IPS system, a Pod system with forward‐facing double propellers. The IPS drive has considerable advantages with regard to performance, exhaust emissions and comfort. It increases range by 40 per cent at a 20 per cent higher top speed, with 30 per cent less fuel consumption and thus also 30 percent less CO2 emissions. With a joystick and software adapted to every individual BAVARIA, the two IPS drives become the ultimate docking system in the harbour. Berthing with the fingertips – child’s play! MerCruiser has been supplying petrol engines for the BAVARIA SPORT line since 1999. When we start work on a new motor yacht, the MerCruiser and Volvo Penta engineers meet with the BAVARIA technicians to decide on the right engine for every SPORT or VIRTESS.
Fuel is the lifeblood of BAVARIA motor yacht. It is therefore important to store it well and to conduct it correctly. BAVARIA ensures this by using stainless steel tanks for example, pressed and therefore extremely durable, sleeves for the fuel lines and magnetic closures for the petrol lines on standard engines. An engine – diesel and petrol – also needs to breathe in order to be able to keep the cylinder head cool. Every BAVARIA motor yacht therefore has a fan for active engine room ventilation.
At BAVARIA we place the highest demands not only on ourselves but also on our suppliers. We are involved in the entire development and production process of a BAVARIA right from the word go. Fittings, hatches, sails, spars, rigging, engines, fuel systems, steering modules, sunroofs and many pieces of equipment are developed and supplied exclusively for BAVARIA.
