BAVARIA at the Boot in Düsseldorf: Positive News

(lifePR) (Giebelstadt, ) BAVARIA already had plenty of positive news to announce at mid-week of the Boot Düsseldorf 2015. The CRUISER 46 won the coveted "European Yacht of the Year" award for sailing yachts, the SPORT 450 celebrated its world premiere with a large baptism, and the new service system BAVARIA+ attracted the attention of visitors and the press.

On the first Saturday of the boat show in the Düsseldorf, the CRUISER 46 was awarded the most coveted title in the yacht building industry, winning the "European Yacht of the Year" award. A total of 25 yachts were nominated in 5 categories and were extensively tested by the jury of 12 chief editors of the leading European magazines, before ultimately crowning the winner. The CRUISER 46 received this important award on behalf of the entire new cruiser line of BAVARIA, as a member of the jury said in her speech: "In a highly competitive class the CRUISER 46 won in the end against many strong candidates because it is the boat with the highest solidity and robustness. She sails very well balanced with lots of space, and sets new standards in workmanship and features. Much respect!"

"Winning the "European Yacht of the Year" award is something all employees and our global network of BAVARIA partners can be really proud of it. It is the reward for all the hard work and commitment invested by BAVARIA, and from our dealer network in recent years, in continuous improvement of our products, and it is great motivation for us to continue on our path," Constantin von Bülow said after the ceremony.

In the presence of many members of the press and hundreds of visitors, the new BAVARIA SPORT 450 celebrated its anticipated world premiere and was unveiled by BAVARIA CEO Constantin von Bülow. In addition to the SPORT 450 OPEN, HARDTOP, and SOFTOP, for the first time a COUPE version was introduced for the largest motor yacht in the BAVARIA range. The SPORT 450 COUPE is on display for all visitors through Sunday.

The new SPORT 450 is offered in a 2- or 3-cabin version. The luxurious master cabin in the bow is the same in both versions and offers a King Size bed format with en-suite head and a separate shower room. Guests will enjoy complete luxury as well in the VIP cabin on the SPORT 450 in the two-cabin version, also with its own en-suite head and separate shower room. The long pantry on the port side galley provides plenty of room for preparing a large dinner in the two-cabin version of the new SPORT 450. Two spacious cabins aft are provided in the 3-cabin version of the SPORT 450, so up to six people can sleep in luxury. To relax in the evening or with additional guests, the optionally lowering saloon table can be converted into a large reclining surface on top of the coffee table.

With one click on your smartphone or tablet, you will immediately have all important data, the list of the yacht's equipment, as well as many descriptive videos on your screen. With the BAVARIA INFORMATION SYSTEM (BAVIS) BAVARIA introduced a new service campaign to owners and charter customers.

The BAVARIA+ package also includes the service history of the yacht. Also, additional equipment and spare parts can be easily ordered by the customer through this new system.

"BAVARIA+ is a real added value that we want to create for our customers. Many of our owners have such precious little free time on their BAVARIA, they should be able to focus on enjoyment, and easily find all information about their boat, which is now possible with BAVARIA+," says Meik Lessig, Head of Sales and After Sales, who introduced the BAVARIA+ system with his team.

The interest and the number of customers who were on the stand of BAVARIA in the first five days of the boot were amazing. Additionally, the introduction of the NAUTITECH OPEN 40 catamaran attracted the attention of visitors.

"It's the first time that BAVARIA in hall 16 has exhibited this catamaran together with the CRUISER- and VISION-line on one stand and we are delighted that the NAUTITECH OPEN 40 by BAVARIA CATAMARANS iy being so well received by the audience in Düsseldorf," explains Daniel Kohl, Head of Product Development for BAVARIA, including its new catamaran line.
