This lovely little yacht is the ideal boat for the "cost conscious" family and packs a lot into just 37 feet. She manages to provide plenty of space for 3 to 6 guests to enjoy all the Virgin Islands have to offer!
The twin aft cabins are large enough for two average sized adults or children, while the spacious forward cabin with en suite head and shower provides great storage space and excellent ventilation.
Her straight forward, interior design is adeptly appointed and boasts a lovely, light coloured, mahogany finish. Her simple yet elegant main saloon features a solid mahogany dinette (with fold up/down leaf) and seating for 4 to 6.
The traditional L-shaped galley with 2 burner stove, range, twin sinks, and top loading fridge/freezer is located at the base of the companionway with easy access to the cockpit for dining al fresco!
Your well equipped navigation station is to starboard at the base of the companionway.
Above decks (and as with all Bavaria yachts), you will find the 37 offers a very sensible line handling arrangement, she is very easy to handle, responsive and quick ... very quick! Come sailing in the Islands aboard the Bavaria 37 and find out what a yacht charter in paradise is all about!
Note: ASA Sailing lessons (levels 101, 103 and 104) are available aboard this yacht. Candidates must be at least 12 years of age or over to acquire bareboat certification.
