The Bavaria 38 Ocean probably will appeal to families looking for a comfortable and strong cruising boat with far better than average accommodations. It has a superb layout with a large master cabin aft and the heads compartment accessible from the salon. Structurally this Bavaria complies with Germanischer Lloyds requirements. There is even a Kevlar layer in the bow area to add to the impact resistance of the hull shell forward. All lines led aft to the dry, comfortable, center cockpit as well as having in-mast furling on the main sail and a furling genoa.
