Winning lines, outstanding quality, and exceptional value distinguish the Bavaria 51 Ocean. Designed by J&J Design and built by Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH in Northern Bavaria, high residual values are guaranteed. The Bavaria 51 Ocean is constructed with a sandwich laminate, a technology used with aircraft and icebreaking boats. This laminate of water repellent and closed-pore foam increases the durability of the shell while decreasing heat conductivity, thus preventing condensation and making the living climate more pleasant. As well, Kevlar fabric is worked into the collision endangered forebody, and a coat of isophthalic acid resin combined with powder-bounded glass mat prevents osmosis and keeps the laminate watertight. Bavaria builds according to the specifications and supervision of Germanischer Lloyd.
