Stefan Klaassen, Head of Sales Bavaria Yachts, said: “This year’s boot, under the motto Bavaria World, was a huge success for Bavaria Yachts. With a total of 24 catamarans, sailing yachts and motorboats on almost 4,000sqm of exhibition space in halls 15 and 17, it was by far the largest stand at this year’s boot.
“In conjunction with our national and international partners, the Bavaria World opened on the first day of the show with two premieres. With our new flagship of the sailing yacht flotilla, the Bavaria C57, and the new and luxurious motorboat Bavaria R40 Coupe, we have set new standards and will continue on this path in the future.”
On the Istanbul Boat Show (February 11-19), Tihana Tadinac, Sales Manager of Bavaria in Southern Europe, said: “In Turkey, the Bavaria Yachts brand has continued to grow in strength and had the largest stand at this year’s Istanbul Boat Show. It was a great success, which was proved by the number of units sold at the show. The premiere of the Bavaria E40 Sedan, the Bavaria E40 Fly and the Bavaria R40 Fly were particularly well received by the public.”
Simon Claxton, Sales Manager in the Americas, spoke of the performance in Miami Boat Show (February 16-20): “Our distributors in the USA did a fantastic job at the Miami Boat Show. Units were sold directly at the show and the feedback from the customers on the new models Bavaria R40 and Bavaria E40 was extremely good.”
Mike Broemel, Sales Manager Central Europe, commented on the record of Austria Boat Show (March 2-5): “There was a constant stream of visitors to the exhibition stands of our outstanding sales partners Meltl und Yacht Center. Bavaria Yachts was the largest exhibitor in Tulln, and we are delighted that we were able to complete a large number of sales. A particular highlight was the 30th-anniversary celebrations of our partner Pitter Yachtcharter attended by countless Bavaria fans, investors, and business partners.”
Marian Scheer, Sales Manager of Northern Europe, talked about the Stockholm International Boat Show (March 4-12): “Bavaria Yachts presented an extremely diverse offering to more than 83,000 visitors at the International Boat Show Allt för Sjön in Stockholm.

“We have Bavaria AB as our sales partner for sailing and motor boats, and Nautic Alliance as our boat charter and service partner, and Navigare Yachting as our catamaran partner. They demonstrated their usual professional standards in looking after those interested in our products and, with our eyes on the future, the course has already been set for the 2018 season.”
Luca Meffle, Business Development Manager, said: “After a three-year hiatus for Bavaria in the Emirates, this January we found the right partner for the region when we teamed up with Sailing Plus. There was a lot of demand at the Dubai International Boat Show, particularly for the Bavaria R55, Bavaria C57 and Nautitech 46 Fly models and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. The first Bavaria yachts were sold successfully at the show and can be seen in Dubai from July/August and in Sailing Plus’ own marina in Ghantoot Island Resort & Marina.”
