NEW Bavaria 51 Cruiser (no name yet, hopefully ‘Katrin’) is our brand new baby, ready for sailing in early spring 2016. For all of you who loved our legendary Roza DeFlores, this is a great substitute, since she is just a new model of almost the same boat.

The new Bavaria 51 Cruiser model had its world premiere in 2014. and won praises for some great innovations, managing to keep the basic idea of space and extra comfort that all new Bavaria models follow.

Special emphasis is put on stability, space organization and comfort with top quality details and perfection in both construction and manufacture.

On seeing her for the first time, we were amazed by how strong and bulky she looked, but at the same time managed to keep graceful features and elegant lines. And once we tried sailing her, even more we appreciated her amazing sailing performances.

Bavaria 51 is a very powerful yacht that loves stronger winds, when she can reach high speeds and still glide so smoothly and effortlessly. Some of her usually praised features are sandwich construction of hull and ingenious rib system, completely channelling the weight from the rigging and the keel. She has large hull with wide stern, twin rudder system, easy handling winches, bigger sail area with shorter genoa to avoid overlapping, and extra stability and storage space achieved by placing tanks at the bottom of the hull.

Our Bavaria 51 has a very functional layout, with 5 cabins and 3 heads plus additional shower. 4 of the cabins have double beds and 1 has bunk beds, one of the aft double cabins has ensuite head, while 4 remaining cabins share two heads.

The owner’s version, where two front cabins turn into one large master cabin, is perfect for couples looking for more comfort and privacy. She is also a perfect choice for bigger groups (as a budget friendly option she can accommodate up to 10+1 persons), but also for families with children and all skippered and crewed charters.

The salon and kitchen area are comfortable and inviting; with almost 30 windows and hatches, the whole interior is bright and airy. There is a lot of storage area, and her minimalistic design with numerous practical solutions make her an ideal choice for all our guests who love spending a lot of time inside a boat, for cooking, eating, relaxing... Apart from two bulky fridges and a gas stove with oven, she also has complete kitchen equipment.

The exterior is solid and wide; with new design of flat windows that provide a comfortable sun deck, while the stern bathing platform and two steering wheels give extra space in the cockpit.

Just like all our other boats, she is fully equipped to offer you that unique feeling of being home, far away from home... Therefore, for our guests who are not so used to being on a boat, we made sure she has everything to help them feel more relaxed and comfortable; like air conditioning to sleep tighter in hot summer nights, webasto heating for colder days, solar panels and electricity inverter, so you can charge your mobiles, cameras and laptops even if you avoid going to the marinas...

Experienced sailors will appreciate the modern navigation equipment (GPS in the cockpit), strong anchor (that can be operated both from the bow and from the cockpit), powerful bow thruster and roll sails which allow only one person to sail and manoeuvre without any help. Additionally, we introduced some extra safety solutions, like double windlass control, double water pump system, a spare propeller etc.

Lastly, for every question you have, and any suggestion or help you need, she has her own mobile phone that connects you to us, free of charge, 24/7.

When preparing our sailing boats for charter, we think about every single detail that can make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Our yachts are equipped with everything you might need during your sailing holiday, both in summer and winter time. We are the owners of our boats, so they are perfectly maintained and kept with a lot of love and personal attention.
'Vana' and 'Lela Doronjski' are older Bavaria models, much appreciated among sailors, mostly because of their warm, traditional decor and practical usage. We pay special attention to their maintenance; changing parts and all the time adding extra equipment, so they are becoming more beautiful every year. Because of their lower prices, they are perfect if you are looking for a safe and comfortable, yet budget friendly sailing options.
Our other four boats, 'Milena Lukić', 'Ilona', 'Roza DeFlores' and 'Baby Blue', are all new Bavaria models, that put together the experience and quality of famous Farr Yacht Design and BMW Group Designworks USA. They are top quality, modern and high performance sailing yachts with every detail of construction and design brought to perfection. They are mostly praised for excellent sailing performances but also for likeable modern interior with lot of light, comfortable cockpit and deck areas, together with a spacious bathing platform; those yachts a real treat for sailors and non-sailors alike.
Now, check them all out with only one thing in mind: whichever one you choose, you won't make a mistake :)
