2013 Bavaria Cruiser 40 Avantgarde - €140,000 (Tax Paid)

Bavaria Cruiser 40 Avantgarde (2013): Liberation is probably the best equipped 40ft sailing boat in the Mediterranean! The current owners have lovingly equipped her and cared for her as a home-from-home since new and are sadly parting with her as they have retired and are embarking on a circumnavigation full time and need a larger boat. Liberation has never been in charter and is the two cabin, owner’s version which provides an exceptionally sized head and separate shower room as well as a utility room/lazarette which is accessed from the cockpit. Call Steve Gunn on (07860) 702376 or email for further details or to arrange to view.
