Manufacturer Provided Description

Racy lines and dynamic sailing features combine with a high course-keeping ability. Combining the right fittings with corresponding material of good quality results in high-value yacht construction. The functionality and modern design make the Bavaria 30 Plus a sporty classic. The experience of Bavaria's interior designers is reflected below deck in the classic arrangement of the pantry, chart table, settees and saloon table. With its optimal economy of space, the Bavaria 30 Plus offers dimensions which were up until now only realized with larger yachts. Classic interior design is realized in the traditional shipbuilding material: mahogany wood, proven to be obtained from cultivated forests only. The result is a feeling of coziness and relaxation below deck.

Owners comments

"Captiva has been our pride and joy for the past 9 years. She has taken us safely across the Channel and to the West Country. She has a great turn of speed under sail and can cope with strong conditions. We have continually updated and improved her over the years. She is agile in close quarters and easy to moor. She is a perfect boat for UK waters and beyond, with a category A classification. 

We are only selling her so that we can upgrade to a blue water cruising yacht that will take us around the world. We will be sad to say goodbye as she has given us fantastic memories over the past 9 years. We would be more than happy to take you out on your first sail so that we can show you how to get the most out of her."
