Quality always makes the difference. Why? Because you can simply tell when materials are special. You can feel it and you can see it. Solid wooden trim, for instance. It’s the love of detail that makes a yacht what it is – and, where it matters, hand craftsmanship. At BAVARIA YACHTS, the entire interior is made in Germany. Every single wooden component is varnished up to six times. This is a level of quality you simply can’t replace.
But it isn’t just us at BAVARIA YACHTS who are striving for the best result. Every stage of the creation of our yachts involves reliable, big‐name partners, each of them market leaders in their field. They too help ensure that the quality is up to the mark – for the best of times at sea.
Every trip is different. And the demands on sails are equally diverse. So every trip has to begin with choosing the right sail. Day‐excursion? Sailing through an archipelago for a week at midsummer? Or is it going to be a really long voyage?
If you’re sailing on the open sea, the material your sail is made out of has to be able to cope with the weather conditions. Dimensional stability and durability are key. Find the right material with us:
Polyester fabric has changed enormously in recent years and has developed to a very high standard. Dacron is the most popular sail material. It’s almost indestructible, very resistant to UV light, and economical too. That’s why it’s suitable for making sails for average demands.
Sails made of this material offer excellent dimensional stability. They’re low‐stretch, durable, and highly tear‐resistant. The advantage here is that you can sail more efficiently in different wind strengths without any loss of handling. That means you can sail fast – closer to the wind – with less listing.
Our EPEX table is the most precise of its kind anywhere in the world. This is how it works: a patented application head positions every single fibre precisely while the whole membrane is held in place by an extra‐strong vacuum. The result is a strong sail that can withstand the harshest conditions for years while retaining exceptional dimensional stability and performance.
The big advantage of nylon is that it can be woven very tightly. This produces a very light and strong fabric. Despite being so light, it exhibits high tensile strength. Because of that and because it’s so resistant to wear, this fabric is excellent for downwind sails like spinnakers and gennakers.
