Broker Remarks

This Bavaria 36 is a well cared for example, she is only on her second owner since new.
The Bavaria 36 has a very spacious interior with generous storage; she is perfect for extended cruising as she is comfortable and very spacious for a yacht of this size.
Her performance is exceptional, she sails exceptionally well and is very manoeuvrable under power and sail. She is well handled shorthanded as all lines lead aft to the cockpit and she has an electric anchor windlass.
Whistler is in great condition throughout, she has never been raced or been chartered; the current owners have used her for coastal cruising around the Southwest coast line.

Owners Remarks:
We purchased Whistler from the original owners. We have tried to maintain her to a very high standard during our ownership. She has been lightly used over the past seven years, we have done short hops along the coast for day sails, weekend and week-long trips from Plymouth to Torquay in the East and Falmouth in the West.
Whistler is a superb yacht to sail, she has a surprising turn of speed. I have been maintained her initially but has been professionally maintained for the past two years. We will be very sad to sell her but are looking to upgrade.
