Broker's Comments

The Bavaria 29 Sport is just a perfect family boat. There is loads of storage, both inside and out, huge side decks make her remarkably user friendly and she is very simple to handle in close quarters.

The cruising abilities of the boat are unquestioned, I would not hesitate to take this boat across the channel and many hours experience in this type have proven to me what fantastic coastal voyagers these craft are.
