An immaculately presented example of the Bavaria 36 'Moonstone' was commissioned by the current owner to his own specification, included the extra deep fin keel and has been fastidiously maintained since commissioning by her loving owner. Fitted out below decks with lots of solid mahogany joinery work and spotless upholstery accommodation for a crew of 6 is offered in comfort over 2 separate cabins. On deck the boat has a spacious cockpit for alfresco entertaining and with all lines lead aft she is ideally set up for short handed sailing.
Reluctantly offered for sale due to an aging owner she comes with a comprehensive inventory. The boat was surveyed for insurance purposes in July 2017 and a copy of the survey is available upon request. Currently lying ashore in North Argyll she is essentially ready to launch in the spring and sail away with a new owner. Viewing highly recommended
