Exclusively for sale with DBY Boatsales is this one owner 2002 model Bavaria 34 in very tidy condition.
The yacht has been pampered at the yacht club during her entire life and is a credit to the current owners.
Internally is a 2 cabin layout incorporating a good sized V berth and a very large aft cabin with queen sized bed.
The Volvo 2030 series 29hp engine is in pristine condition with a very low 1265 hours. The rigging is original as are the battened main and jib. There is also a 2003 gennaker that has seen little use and presents near new.
On deck she’s well laid-out and the gear quality is above average. Her cockpit works well short-handed, with the primary winches quite far aft it make it possible for the helmsman to use them. She has good quality two-speed Harken 48ST primaries and single-speed size 16ST halyard winches. Although the majority of 34s had in-mast mainsail furling, this one would be a bit quicker with the greater area of a slab-reefed mainsail. Her steering is light and positive, with very little signs of weather helm, even when pushed hard.
I confess I’m a traditionalist when it comes to yacht interiors. I like plenty of wood as it gives the boat a snug feel when it’s howling outside. I also like a practical, no-frills layout, such as straight settees that you can use as decent sea berths, a forward-facing chart table, a head at the foot of the companionway (especially with a wet locker inside) to keep crew drips to a minimum and a galley that works at sea. This boat has all of that and more.
Headroom is good, ventilation and natural light are also plentiful, and stowage is much better than in many yachts of the same era. She sleeps six easily – I like the lifting seatbacks, which make the berths wider and are great for hiding bedding during the day.
This is a true example of a one owner yacht that has been loved and maintained. Inspection will not disappoint so call us to arrange one today.
