2001 Bavaria 40 Ocean

New Bern, North Carolina


REBOOT is a very clean and dry Bavaria Ocean 40.  The owner has been meticulous since taking ownership pulling all ports, hatches, stanchions and the cap rail to rebed each.  The interior has been updated and she is tidy throughout.  The hull and deck are in very nice condition and the teak shows care.  

On deck you will find all lines lead aft to the center cockpit making short-handed sailing easy with a newer genoa and in-mast furling main.  The moderate draft of 5'3" will allow you to explore areas deeper draft boats must avoid.
