Important people in the article
Peter K Poland wrote the article and his knowledge of the Bavaria's is extensive and throughout the article he outlines 'the development of the Bavaria company, looking at key models in the firms boatbuilding history'. Poland crossed the Atlantic in a 7.6m (25ft) Wind Elf in 1968 and later he spent 30 years as a co-owner of Hunter Boats. He is now a freelance journalist.
Winnfried Hermann is the founder of Bavaria Yachtbau. He used to sail as a hobby when he was a vacuum cleaner salesman, he subsequently set up a display in his window focusing on boats, thus in 1978, Bavaria Yachtbau was born.
Charterers play a large role in the Bavaria story. From the Med (cough cough!) to the tropics, you'll find fleets of Bavarias.
'Amy Neilson of Sailing Holidays is also a fan, saying: ‘They are very popular bareboat charter yachts, and a number of our suppliers have a selection of both new and old designs. ‘Our customers’ favourite is the Bavaria 46, launched in 2007. The four-cabin layout – three with doubles, one with twin bunks – plus two heads offers brilliant space for a larger family or two families sharing. This eight-berth Bavaria is popular – no one else currently offers a modern design of this nature'.
