Bavaria 37 (2017) 'Jitterbug'
Our Bavaria 37 “Jitterbug” available for BVI charter has the cockpit and interior volume of some of the competitions 40 footers. The British “Sailing Today’ magazine gave the Cruiser 37 a 4/5 for sailing performance.
The 37 is quick, responsive, and well balanced. Impressive. With a fully battened mainsail and 106% genoa, this Bavaria 37 is super fast to tack, and easily sailed short handed due to the single line reefing system led back to the cockpit. A Garmin autopilot complements the full array of Garmin electronics, including an 8 inch cockpit chart plotter.
Like the other Farr designs in the Bavaria line up, she carries her beam well aft ( 12 feet of it) enabling this 37 footer to have the cockpit of a 40 footer and twin helm positions. This provides for excellent visibility when helming on either tack and also gives a clear walkway through to the transom. The Bavaria signature transom lowers to give you the perfect swimming platform at anchor or at the dock. Ideal for your BVI Yacht Charter!
Below decks, there is 6ft 3” of headroom, 2 double cabins, bundles of ventilation, energy efficient led bulbs, to reduce your battery charging and engine running time, an efficient fridge, and a docking station for your ipod, with speakers in the saloon and cockpit. When you have anchored for the day, zip ashore in the 12ft RIB, with 15 hp Yamaha…….Horizon has the best tenders in the islands!
