The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.


This Bavaria has truly explored the world (but not a circumnavigation), a tried and tested cruising yacht. Still in her original private Austrian ownership, never chartered. 

She has safely navigated the world boasting a host of countries visited, which should offer the next owners extreme confidence in her capabilities as well as rising to the challenge of visiting them all again.

A comprehensive more technical inventory is available on request.
