2003 Bavaria 38

"Zweiter Wind"

Introduced in 2002, the Bavaria 38 was a J&J Desing design and was an update to the highly successful Bavaria 37. The Bavaria 38 is a cruiser with a length of 11.91m (39 feet) and a beam of 3.87m (12.69 feet) draft of 5'5' and a mast height of 53'. The movement on deck is comfortable and safe thanks to the large flat surfaces, the solid handles and the placement of the shrouds inboard, closer to the mast.

The cockpit is large and inviting for entertaining guests while also providing an owner with the ability to shorthand sail - as all lines lead aft into the cockpit. The cockpit features teak flooring and seating and a convenient walk- thru transom for swimming, diving, paddleboarding and boarding the tender. 

"Zweiter Wind", German for Second Wind is a 2003 Bavaria 38 Aft Cabin in turn key condition. She is berthed in Vero Beach and has been lovingly maintained by her current owners. The interior is HUGE for a 38 footer. She sports 2 full cabins and a large, inviting dinette in the main salon. Her interior teak is freshly varnished and shows little signs of wear and tear and the cabin sole is beautiful. There is tons of storage for cruising provisions. 

She has been professionally maintained and in immaculate condition, ready to enjoy today!
