Broker's Comments

Excellent condition Bavaria 31, we have had the wonderful opportunity to sell this boat twice now and she still looks great. Reason for sale owner moving up to a bigger boat.
Fantastic layout and cavenous space technically she has a folding propeller, and a comprehensive suite of navigation equipment including binnacle mounted GPS plotter with radar overlay and AIS. A LCD TV/ DVD player is mounted in the saloon fed by a mast mounted aerial. She would suit a young family or those who need when cruising something easy to sail.

Owners Comments:
She has been a fantastic boat to own, she is easily handled by two and I often sail her single handed. Although sailed mainly in the Solent she took us on enjoyable 11 day trip to France and the Channel Islands during last year’s heatwave. Due to its full height (not usual) her cockpit tent doubles as an Bimini with the sides rolled up and, when the weather turns typically English, it keeps us nice and dry. Her folding prop and generous sail plan means she slips along easily in light winds leaving much larger boats in her wake. Under power she is responsive with the folding prop gripping well, both ahead and astern when needed. Her fine entry means she cuts through the dreaded Solent chop with ease and has no real vices ahead or astern. She is now ready and waiting to carry her new owners on to new adventures.
