Bavaria 44 Cruiser

You'll be impressed by the exceptional condition of this 45ft, 3 cabin fast cruiser"
A comfortable, classy, high-quality yacht, which has only been privately owned & enjoyed, thus she has maintained the condition few boats can boast.

A sleek, German design that delivers quality, comfort, and excellent value for money. Summer Wind is the reliable boat you want for your future adventures with family and friends. The yacht can comfortably accommodate 6 persons in her 3 cabins and 1 in the saloon. Her immaculately clean interior, beautifully maintained mahogany timber cabinetry and spacious fit-out provides comfort whilst at sea or at anchor. Her teak gunnels, cockpit seats and floor are finished with Intergrain acrylic timber sealer providing year-round protection enhancing the overall good looks of this successful Bavaria design. All up she is a reliable, comfortable, and good-looking classic boat that can fulfil your ocean dreams.

"Summer Wind" has a brief but successful history of being a champion racer - a fast, comfortable yacht that won two consecutive Melbourne to Devonport - Rudder Cup series races, both AMS and PHS handicaps systems in 2016 and 2017 (Melbourne). Not only does she bring pleasure on the racecourse, but she has also comfortably fulfilled the retirement dreams of her current owners, having cruised the East coast of Australia since 2018, entertaining and sharing memories with family and friends.

FOR THOSE with a keen interest in her maintenance, (because this will save you money) you will be pleased to know, her rudder bearings were replaced in May 2018 restoring her feather-weight twin wheeled steering to its designed specification. Her standing rigging was replaced, February 2020. In March 2021 she was hauled-out, polished, antifouled, propeller anodes renewed, her engine and sail-drive serviced, fuel tank pumped clean and the diesel fuel biocide-treated.

FOR THOSE interested in the Sail inventory
Her sail wardrobe comprises a recent North furling No. 1 genoa 2017 and symmetric spinnaker 2015, her No. 2 genoa and a No. 3 jib, and asymmetric spinnaker are in good condition. The new storm jib is set off the inner forestay and when used is supported by heavy weather runners lead aft to the cockpit and tensioned by the spinnaker sheet winches providing additional mast support when sailing in a seaway.

Summer Wind is ready to explore the Whitsunday's, the Great Barrier Reef and beyond and awaits your inspection at Ailrie Beach CSMR.

Call Paul 0419 352 762 to arrange an inspection.
Summer Wind is currently available in Airlie Beach QLD end of September
