BAVARIA - Best results through quality
The BAVARIA team was already able to celebrate the first surprise on the first Saturday of the fair. The CRUISER 46, one of the most successful sailing yachts in BAVARIA's company history, was awarded the 'European Yacht of the Year' award in the category of cruising yachts. But what should make all employees particularly proud, from apprentices to company management and all BAVARIA dealers, was the conclusion of the 12-member jury, consisting of journalists of the leading water sports magazines in Europe: "In a very competitive class, CRUISER 46 was victorious in the end, because out of many strong candidates it was the boat with the highest solidity and robustness. It sails in a very well balanced way, with lots of space and variability, and sets a new standard in terms of workmanship and equipment. Respect!"
"The 'European Yacht of the Year' Award is a prize that all employees and our global BAVARIA dealer network may be very proud of. It is the reward for all the craft that everyone in the BAVARIA dealer network has engaged with in recent years in improving our products, and an incentive to continue on the path we have carved out for ourselves," said CEO Constantin von Bülow following the ceremony.
It was the German premiere of NAUTITECH OPEN 40, and it was the first day for one of the most visited ships in Hall 16 for sailing yachts. Since September, the successful French shipyard NAUTITECH has been operating under the umbrella of BAVARIA CATAMARANS, the new BAVARIA catamaran line. Already on Wednesday a mixture of nervousness and satisfied smiles was evident for NAUTITECH Managing Director Bruno Voisard and the managers of BAVARIA, such as Daniel Kohl, CPO for everything to do with sailing and motor yachts at BAVARIA, along with COO Sebastian Jürgens. Almost the entire annual production for the NAUTITECH OPEN 40 was already sold halfway through the fair. Now the production will be expanded at NAUTITECH in Rochefort to a third layer, in order to satisfy the demand of the coming spring fairs.
"We are very happy that our customers and the market have received NAUTITECH OPEN 40 so well. And we were encouraged to have another OPEN next year at the size of 45 feet," Daniel Kohl said.
Fair visitors to the boot came on noon of the first Saturday to finally see the new SPORT 450. Under a white cloth, the new flagship of BAVARIA waited for her revelation. Punctually at 12 o'clock BAVARIA Managing Director Constantin von Buelow gave the command, and the new SPORT 450 celebrated its world premiere. The elegant silhouette, powerful lines and a combination of modern and discreet design are the outer characteristics of the SPORT 450. A stylish interior with many design options are the inner characteristics of the SPORT 450. Providing clear and clever details in the best boat building tradition for the SPORT 450 is a matter of course for BAVARIA, as the visitors to the boat confirmed.
The variety of the SPORT 450 is typical of the new SPORT line of BAVARIA. The 15 meter yacht being built includes the large platform as OPEN, HARD and SOFT TOP and as SPORT 450 COUPE, as it was seen in Duesseldorf. Furthermore, future owners will be able to choose between the 2 cabin version with a long and high-quality pantry line, or the 3 cabin version with two comfortable guest cabins. All of them have a clever lighting concept consisting of windows, hatches and LED lighting, which makes the salon look classy and bright in every kind of daylight.
Nearly 160 guests from across Europe met for the second weekend, 'Sport 450 VIP Night', and celebrated the grand success of the new Sport 450 in Duesseldorf.
BAVARIA+ is the new service system of BAVARIA, which premiered on the boot. With a short scan of a QR code you can obtain all the essential information on the equipment of the yacht, as well as many explanatory videos on the screen of your phone or tablet computer. BAVARIA INFORMATION SYSTEM, BAVIS for short, is what BAVARIA calls this part of its new service campaign for owners and charter customers. Without having to read long manuals, now on a BAVARIA you can see via a video how the anchor winch works, or receive an explanation for the switch panel at the card table. The BAVARIA+ package also includes the service history of the yacht. There will soon be a shop where customers can also easily order additional equipment and spare parts.
"BAVARIA+ is a real added value that we want to create for our customers. Whoever spends what little free time he has on a BAVARIA, should also be able to enjoy and quickly find all explanations regarding the yacht, which is now possible with BAVARIA+," said Meik Lessig, Head of Sales and After Sales, who initiated the BAVARIA+ system together with his team.

With the success of the Duesseldorf exhibition, BAVARIA will now start up in the coming season. As previously announced, Constantin von Buelow, who took over the management of BAVARIA in April 2013, will be placing the company in the hands of the new CEO Lutz Henkel by the end of the month. On February 1st Constantin von Buelow will switch to Speaker of the Advisory Board in the Supervisory Board of BAVARIA, and thus will be more active in determining the fortunes of BAVARIA on behalf of the owner.
"I am very proud to be a part of BAVARIA. This fair has shown how perfectly all employees as a team and the entire dealer network contribute to the success of BAVARIA," wrote Constantin von Buelow in a thank you message to all employees.
The next major fairs on BAVARIA's agenda are now the Miami Boat Show (February 12th to 16th) and the Eurasia Boat Show in Istanbul (February 14th to 22th).
