Bavaria Yachts USA announced that Mystic, Conn., will be the location of its newest factory-direct location, positioned to serve the Northeast sailing market.

Bavaria Yachts will be based at Mystic Shipyard, where it will offer new-boat sales, service and parts support, all focused entirely on the company’s sailing yachts. The Bavaria Yachts office will officially open in early September.

From Sept. 13-16, Bavaria USA will be at the Newport International Boat Show with new Bavaria models, including the new Cruiser 50 and the highly anticipated Vision 46.

"Since our launch in June 2011 the response to our new Farr-designed Cruiser Series has been overwhelming," Bavaria Yachts USA managing director Kenny Feld said in a statement. "We anticipate even more excitement with the upcoming introduction of the incredible new Vision Series. We are thrilled that with the opening of the new Mystic office we will now be able to directly serve the Northeast market. Mystic is the perfect location given it's accessibility from most major sailing and metro areas in the Northeast.”

In the spring of 2013, new Bavaria models will be available for chartering the cruising waters of the Northeast with the opening of a new Horizon Yacht Charters base in Mystic, Horizon's sixth base in the United States and the Caribbean.


Workers Wanted

Like most people born in 1990, Justin Bennett was on a four-year college track. He and his parents took it for granted that he would attend college before moving on to a steady desk job — until a stint at sailing camp, and later as a counselor, helped Bennett discover his passion for boats.

Momentum from Boat Shows Expected to Continue

Seventy percent of boat dealers who responded to a monthly survey said they had at least “somewhat positive” momentum emerging from winter boat shows, with 38 percent saying momentum was “very strong” or “strong.”
