Bavaria Yachts is synonymous for motor and sailing yachts that have an
outstanding price to performance ratio.
One of the top-ranking and biggest yacht builders in Europe, Bavaria
Yachtbau GmbH has developed a line of power boats that stand out for
their solid and lasting value. This is the result of many years of
intensive cooperation between Bavaria and the most renowned design firms
Innovation, modern manufacturing methods, computer-aided manufacturing
processes and highly skilled craftsmen all enable our yachts to be
produced comparatively inexpensive. Bavaria Yachts is thus able to pass
this competitive advantage directly on to its customers.
Every year approximately 3.000 boats and yachts between 25 and 50 feet leave the yard, which employs more than 600 people and which is one of the most modern series production facilities for boats in the world.

for money you have come to expect from a German manufacturer.
A total of 102 BAVARIA yachts were sold at the boot show in Duesseldorf
BAVARIA enjoyed a staggering result with 102 customers deciding at the exhibition to buy a BAVARIA sailing yacht or motorboat. This is not only a new show sales record for BAVARIA itself, but also among 1,600 exhibitors at the boat Dusseldorf.
All yachts should be still delivered during this season which not only secures jobs in Giebelstadt but allows for further recruitment.
Three questions to Constantin von Bülow the CEO of Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH:
To sell 102 sailing and motor yachts in only nine days is quite an effort. Did you expect to achieve such a record?
Constantin von Bülow:
Already during the autumn boatshows in Europe we have seen a positive tendency towards our products at BAVARIA. However, with 102 clear orders on the boot we have surpassed our own expectations. It has shown that it was the right decision to present our complete range of products in Dusseldorf along with our 20 traders from 12 nations. In only 15 months we have put more than 10 new sailing yachts on the market and have provided our motor yacht lines with some attractive equipment packages. This is appreciated by the market now.
Did you previously know the customers that have placed orders at the boot?
Constantin von Bülow: Not only owners and charter companies who already own a BAVARIA yacht before have now ordered new ones. We are more than happy to see new customers who have previously owned a yacht from one of our competitors who have now decided to switch and place an order for a new BAVARIA yacht as well as some who have not owned a yacht before.
What reasons do your customers give for buying a BAVARIA yacht?
Constantin von Bülow: The high quality and the attractive design of our yachts were the most commonly mentioned purchase reasons that we heard from customers which encourages us in our brand strategy and product development. We have invested a lot of time and money in these areas because we are convinced that customers are not detracted today just by good design during their purchase decision, but spend more time looking at all the details of a yacht. We have found the perfect balance in the production with boatbuilding and more fashionably industrial manufacturing. We order only high-quality equipment from our suppliers. Put all this together and we get the right mix to successfully sell yachts. The development in the yacht sector has not finished yet, however, with BAVARIA we have achieved the range turnaround and our success at the boot in Dusseldorf proves this quite clearly.
With BAVARIA the signs are clearly pointing towards growth.
In spite of a still difficult market situation in many countries of Europe the German shipyard continuously increases its market shares. The order book keeps filling up and now it requires more staff to supply and to enhance further markets. An ideal chance for the start of a career in the yacht construction sector.
The list of opportunities on the Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH web page grows longer by the day.
“More yachts, more work” is the simple formula for the production of motor and sailing yachts in Giebelstadt this year. On the 200,000 square metre site and in 70,000 square metres of the production halls, traditional boatbuilding crafts combine with the most modern industrial manufacturing of yachts. “Made in Germany” and “Quality” are the biggest assets at BAVARIA since 1978. Now certified and skilled workers are require for in skills ranging from engine installation up to the trainee in Industrial Design.

BAVARIA - VIRTESS 420 Coupé On Board with Product Manager
AND AGAIN THE WINNER IS ….
BAVARIA’s first flybridge yacht has set itself apart from impressive competition right from the start and clearly demonstrates the innovative spirit and design quality of boats from Giebelstadt by winning a number of awards. With only a few months into the new year, the Virtess 420 Fly has already won three of the most prestigious awards in the marine industry.
BAVARIA was delighted to receive the prestigious European Powerboat of the Year Award. The high-performance Virtess 420 Fly outperformed four other shortlisted boats to win the “Yachts up to 45 foot” category. Design, handling, safety on board and value-for-money were among the main test criteria.
The VIRTESS 420 Fly then continued to win yet another award. The MOTOR BOAT OF THE YEAR AWARD 2013 in the “Flybridge yachts up to 55 ft” category. The award is organised by Motor Boat & Yachting, Motor Boats Monthly and ybw.com and is the most important British design award for motor boats
The Nautical Design Award is presented every year to the yacht with the most innovative and demanding design. The prestigious prize is awarded by an international panel of experts, which includes members of the Association for Industrial Design (ADI) as well as leading designers such as Giorgio Armani, Giorgio Orsoni, Lamberto Vallarino Gancia, Vittorio Missoni and Walter de Silva (chairman).
The VIRTESS 420 was selected ahead of the other nominated models: the Pershing 82, Austin Parker 64 Fly, Ocean King 88 and the Prestige 620.
“The Nautical Design Award represents a sensational success for BAVARIA and a significant step forward for us in the luxury yacht market. We’re delighted that our first flybridge – which was only premiered this autumn – has received the most important nautical design award,” said Alexander Knesewitsch, Head of Marketing and PR at BAVARIA.
The VIRTESS 420 Fly from BAVARIA’s luxury line has already been followed by a second model – the VIRTESS 420 Coupé. The VIRTESS 420 Coupé is the next logical step to expand market share in the premium segment. Its powerful, free-spirited design and innovative features such as a panoramic sunroof, comfortable reclining areas, bright and open interior and fine furnishings mean that the new yacht represents the ultimate in luxury and comfort.
Bavaria’s first flying bridge yacht has been nominated for the “European Powerboat of the Year Award 2013”.
BAVARIA is particularly delighted by the news because this is the first boat from the new luxury range. The 12.37 m long, high-performance yacht has made it to the shortlist of five boats in the “Yachts up to 45 foot” category.
The VIRTESS 420 stands apart for its distinctive and powerful design, generous size and custom-made, superior furniture. BAVARIA partnered with renowned Italian designers TOO DESIGN on the VIRTESS 420 to produce a design concept that allows BAVARIA to enter a completely new segment.
