Bavaria 37 - Mayan Star

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky.
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.

This Bavaria yacht is the perfect choice for Solent Yacht Charter

This 2015 Bavaria 37 has been tremendously successful during her debut season. Named ‘Mayan Star’, inspired by our love of Mexico and as a reminder of the iconic Mayan calendar,  this beautiful yacht heralds a ‘new beginning’ with the optimism and dreams this brings to us all. We hope that you will realise your own personal dreams by sailing on board this beautiful yacht.

This Bavaria 37 is fully equipped to provide you with all the comfort and luxury you would expect from one of the Solent’s premier charter companies. Easily sailed by 2 people yet spacious enough to accommodate 8 in 3 double cabins and saloon. Coded for 8 in accordance with the MCA code of practice to operate within 60 miles of a safe haven. This boat has all the toys, electric windlass, lazy jacks, sprayhood, cockpit table and chartplotter.

Bavaria 37 Layout

You might be interested to know that we are using a brand new ‘Synergy’ copper coating treatment to the hull. This brand new antifouling system has been developed over the last four years and uses cutting edge technology to reduce maintenance and ensure an extremely long life with up to 10 years between re-coatings. We are hoping it will mean less time in the boatyard and more time out on the water!

I realise I did not drop you a note to say how much we all enjoyed our weekend aboard Mayan Star for the Round the Island race.

The yacht was in great shape, as I am sure you know. Everything worked well and it was a pleasure to be aboard and to sail.

Nigel did a great job and was also good company, which is of course important. I am sure we all learn much from him.

Overall I think we were pretty satisfied with the race results, considering experiences of many aboard and, the Cruiser nature of Mayan Star an the low risk approach taken overall.
