Bavaria Owners Association

Benefits of joining the Bavaria Owners' Association

The Association is for all who own, sail, charter or have an interest in the Bavaria range of yachts and motor boats.

The Association was formed in 1999 with the initial aim of organising social and cruising events so that members, their families and friends could meet with other owners of Bavaria boats.

Rallies, Races and Social Events

Throughout the year, the Association organises and runs rallies and races at locations throughout the country.

The BOA calendar of events is constantly updated: View the Events calendar »

For those who enjoy racing, either 'social' or more serious, there are also several races arranged throughout the year, including the prestigious Commodore's Cup race in the Solent.

The format of events varies, dependant on the location etc., but generally includes guaranteed berths, a pre-dinner drinks get together and dinner in a nearby yacht club, restaurant, pub or DIY BBQ.

All current BOA Members are welcome to book and join in - to enjoy the company of other Bavaria Owners on the water and in an informal social environment.

You can be assured of a warm welcome (and a guaranteed berth!)

The Bavaria Owners' Association Forum

The Forum has developed over the years and is a discussion board aimed at helping members. It contains many hint, tips and tricks that members have contributed.

There's a large section on general sailing topics and also a section covering topics by boat model.
