A larger number of hatches and port lights than usual means the saloon is always airy and spacious. The best European attention to design detail is evident in the finish throughout the boat, particularly the interior where there is good light and space for working and relaxing. The bavaria Cruiser nage of boats are great all-rounders, ideal for monohull charter and guaranteed to please family or group of friends holidaying together.
