Visit the BOA Shop to see the extended range of BOA merchandise available with your embroidered boat name; Umbrellas, towels, shirts, fleeces, bags and a special treat, a cosy onesie!

On this website BOA members can access the Forum - our members’ board with over 450 contributors containing over 2600 postings covering nearly 700 topics. If you own a Bavaria this is the must have resource and is only available to BOA members. We also have Hints and Tips - an older resource of fixes, solutions and articles going back to 2002.

We have an Events Programme, including rallies and other social events, and the Members’ Clubhouse also contains a free For Sale board, a Crew Exchange board, and the BOA online shop
