Bavaria 44 built in 2003. Neat example of this popular German built family cruiser. With the addition of the starboard bunk cabin, this yacht can easily sleep up to eight making her perfect for two couples and families. Only in her second ownership, she has been well maintained and is presented for sale in very good overall condition.
