In 1978, the first yacht of the Bavaria brand came off the stocks at a shipyard in the German city of Gibelshdat. It was the 807. The founder of the company, Winfred Hermann, could not have imagined at the time that in a few years his production would have the most modern facilities to produce a wide range of yachts.
This manufacturer of plastic windows decided to re-equip its factory for the production of inexpensive cruise yachts, and the assembly of models on an on-line conveyor became a feature of the shipyard's work. This made it possible to speed up the production of finished products, divide functions among the working staff, improve quality control at each stage of assembly. Over time, Bavaria became the first company in the yachting world to use robotic technology in the construction of yachts and boats.
Constantly feeling the pulse of the market, this company has been mastering the production of motor boats since 2003. Today their share in the total number of manufactured products is 40%.
Today BAVARIA-Yachtbau is a shipyard with 200 thousand sq. m. production space. 70 thousand sq.m. were allocated directly for the body molding shops, workshops, carpentry shops and five assembly lines. The model range of the manufacturer includes 40 models of sailing cruising catamarans and planing yachts with a flybridge with a hull length from 9 to 18 meters. The main production facilities with a staff of 600 are located in the German Giebelstadt. In La Rochelle, France, the company employs 250 people to assemble Nautitech catamarans. Every year 2 thousand motor and sailing yachts leave the stocks of this leader of the yachting industry with an excellent combination of price and quality. It is for him that many experts on the yacht and boat market call BAVARIA-Yachtbau a people's brand.
The shipyard's own test center in Markbraith am Main also takes an active part in the technological chain. The work of this division allows you to research, test, modify yachts, bring innovations to their designs. The center's specialists work on each model until the quality inspectors of the shipyard give their approval for its serial launch. In the structure of the center, there is a test pool, in which yachts, before falling into the hands of their owners, are tested for their strength and reliability indicators.
All Bavaria yachts and boats are certified and meet the most stringent quality standards.
