The details on the Bavaria 33 are not found on just any yacht. What is presented is the latest technology in yacht building. No useless gadgets are employed that may malfunction and spoil sailing. The standard equipment is of such good quality that the yacht should retain maximum value. This reflects the extensive knowledge, experience and professional pride of Bavaria's yacht designers and builders. On the inside too, the visible quality of the interior is built to last. The construction at crucial points is beyond the regulations by Lloyds. This increases safety at sea, increases the stability of value and makes living on board more comfortable. Sandwich laminate technology such as that used in the aircraft industry and on ice-breaking boats is used in the above-water hull and in the deck. The sandwich layer is of water-repellent closed-cell foam to increase the dent-resistance of the shell. Its low heat conductivity prevents condensation and makes the interior climate more pleasant. Kevlar fabric, the material of which bullet-proof jackets are made, is worked into the forebody below the waterline to protect against collision. The doubled laminate thickness of the keel flange triples the safety factor in case of impact. The floor timber is reinforced by stiff S-glass layers. The laminate is watertight and prevents osmosis.
