Bavaria 34 (2017) 'Maverick'
Overview

Bavaria 34 'Maverick'

The 2017 model Bavaria 34 charter yacht ‘Maverick’, designed by Farr Yacht design, is a capable family cruiser available from Horizon in the British Virgin Islands.

 

Built in Germany to a high standard, the 34 has a roller furling main and genoa, with all control lines easy to hand in the cockpit. The genoa winches have been moved aft, so the genoa can be trimmed easily by the helm or crew. You can be under full sail in just a few minutes. As the 34 carries her beam well aft, she benefits from twin wheels – great for helming visibility, with the added bonus of giving direct access to the transom swim platform, without any clambering around a single wheel. A full Garmin electronics suite, including a cockpit chart plotter, makes navigation a breeze. The 34 is responsive on the helm, easily sailed short-handed, and is the perfect yacht for a fabulous week (or more) cruising around the islands.

Below decks, the Bavaria 34 charter yacht is beautifully finished with Sipo Mahogany joinery, light oak-colored cabin sole, and cream real leather upholstery. The galley, with stove, hob, and fridge is to starboard and with three surprisingly generous double cabins, there is room for family and friends.

Bavaria 34 (2017) 'Maverick' Reviews
David Andrews (President and CEO American Hockey League), March 12th - March 19th 2017

Just a quick note to thank all of you for making our recent sailing vacation such a great one. Every aspect of our trip was terrific. Maverick was in impeccable condition and perfect for the two of us, the office staff and Lucy and Jon were terrific with respect to the boat briefing and the return process.

Couldn’t be happier with the entire experience. We will be back!

Peter E. Montgomery, February 6th 2017

We had an amazing trip.  Maverick was perfect, as were the people at Horizon.  Loved going in and out of Nanny Cay.   Did Norman’s (Sun), Jost Van Dyke Great Harbor (Mon), Foxy’s Taboo/Little Harbor (Tues.), Leverick Bay in Gorda Sound (W/Th.); Cooper Island Beach Club (Fri.), and back to Nanny Cay (Sat.).

Will have to repeat next year.

Jon Trauger, Dec 2021, BVI

First time my wife and I sailed on our own, and big thank you to Jalon and Cara all your help and instruction. Nice clean and well maintained boat, and sailing around the BVI was amazing.  All horizon staff great, and we will no doubt be back chartering with Horizon!

Andy, BVI 2-7 October 2022

We’re tied up at The Bight on another spectacular Caribbean sunset.  Many thanks to the entire Horizon crew but both of you ( Sandra and Cara ) in particular for the characteristically friendly and outstanding professional services.  We’re having a magnificent time.

C Shradar, BVI 10/5(SAB)-10/13/23

Appreciate all the effort made by Horizon to keep us on track. Thank you for a great trip!

Jason Hill, 5(SAB)-13OCT23

Ahoy!

My wife and I loved our recent trip on Maverick, and are already planning our return to the BVIs!

Find Your Rate Check out our special offers

Please note we have 5 nights minimum and 7 nights min between Dec 18 and Jan 4.

Did you know Horizon’s charters start and finish at noon? This means we can get you out sailing your first afternoon after your briefings – remember to watch your video briefings to speed up your check out! At the end of your trip, you sail back to Nanny Cay to refuel and debrief before your noon departure. This gives you a full 6 nights/7 days chartering around our beautiful islands, unlike some companies that start at 5pm, meaning you will have to sleepaboard* at the docks, and then finish at 10am, again meaning you will probably have to stay overnight on the docks the night before you leave to fly home.

*If available, a sleep aboard can be added the night before your charter start for a small supplement, boarding your yacht after 5pm.
