A Bavaria 42 Cruiser at Chichester Marina for a pre-purchase survey by Guy Nicholls, Solent Marine Surveys. This 2001 model had been very well looked after, a marine surveyor can quickly spot tell tale signs of good maintenance when approaching a survey. This one, from the polished, deep lustre to the topsides, clean running rigging and canvas work, plus immaculate interior was clearly much loved by the vendor. As with all Bavaria yachts, this one was constructed with a closed cell foam sandwich to the topsides and deck, coachroof and cockpit, with a solid skin of monolithic laminate to the hull below waterline.
