The Bavaria Shipyard

The Bavaria shipyard is the single largest yacht production facility in the world with 650 employees (and a few robots) capable of delivering over 3,500 boats per year to new owners worldwide. All Bavaria shipyard yachts are built to the stringent Germanischer Lloyd Certification and are produced to order which enables wider customisation of individual yachts and more flexible ownership options.

Since 1978 Bavaria yachts have been synonymous with premium quality, solid and lasting values as well as an outstanding price-performance ratio. More than 1,500 motor and sailing yachts per year leave the shipyard ranking among the worlds largest and most successful yacht manufacturers.

At the BAVARIA shipyard, BAVARIA continuously develops sailing yachts and motorboats, which range from the SPORT 28 motorboat to the CRUISER 55 sailing yacht. All boats are purely produced by order from the dealer; a method that enables each customer to configure an individual yacht for their taste. Our worldwide dealer network guarantees BAVARIA customers a professional delivery and first-class service on site.

There is a strong degree of automation, which ensures the minimization of sources of errors for enhanced BAVARIA quality. Examples are shop floors, laminating rooms with humidity and climate control, CNC-machines and robots as well as an automated coating line with UV-drying.

BAVARIA production involves close collaboration with top-class yacht designers. Farr Yacht Design and Insenaval S.L are responsible for maritime architecture and all technical functionalities  of the new BAVARIA series, both sailing yachts and powerboats. The newly-designed yachts resulting from this collaboration are highly respected and received approval from customers, dealers and in the water sport publications. The new series consists of the CRUISER 32, CRUISER 36, CRUISER 40, CRUISER 40 S, CRUISER 45, CRUISER 50 and the CRUISER 55.
