And...what's not included? The headline grabbing optional extra is the lack of internal doors. They're only available as part of the €6,500 Easy Living Package, which also includes a second halyard winch; Cockpit table, hot and cold cockpit-shower, shore power; windowed companion way door, stove, fridge, Holding tank; additional battery & uprated charger; Shower in aft head; Warm water boiler. It all seems like sensible stuff you'd want if you were going to use it for much more than day sailing - especially the cooking facilities.
So what else would you need? Well for €200 you'd be crazy not to get midship cleats and I can't imagine sailing a yacht without a sprayhood for when it turns nasty - so that's another €1,500. Other than that there are a variety of upgrades for things like sails, rigging and electronics.
On reflection I'm not sure about the name though - it seems like "Easy" might limit it's appeal on the second hand market. Easy sounds a bit like "My First Yacht" or something for beginners and might make people that don't consider themselves in those demographics less likely to buy 10-15 years down the road when you've payed off the marine mortgage. Maybe I'm overthinking it.
There is a certain type of snobby yachty that likes to talk down about Bavarias. I think it's because they're aimed at the cost conscious end of the market and aren't the same product as Hallberg Rassys costing three or four times as much. I for one am not one of them. I've sailed on a few and they've been comfortable safe and good to sail and every owner I've spoken to has been happy. Anything that can open up yachting to more people has to be a good thing. I look forward to having a look around one at the Southampton Boat Show in a couple of months.
