Bavaria 37 Tuition Yacht

   

Our Bavaria 37 Cruiser is our fully equipped tuition yacht, based in Vassiliki with our instructor. You can book individually, or privately for your group. We can teach all courses at the same time, so all the family can learn together. We offer the International Crew, International Flotilla and Bareboat Skipper courses (with ICC) and many guests will go on to skipper their own yacht in week two.

More on Crew and Skippers courses

Our tuition boat can be booked as a liveaboard (for private charters) where you learn as you cruise around the beautiful Ionian. Just allow one cabin for your instructor. Or you can book spaces on the yacht as a solo, a couple or a family whilst staying at the Surf Hotel in Vassiliki. It’s perfect when combined with week one of a Stay Sail holiday. Stay at the Surf hotel and walk down to join the yacht each day in Vassiliki marina.

About the Bavaria 37 Cruiser

The Bavaria 37 is a great sailing boat, very modern and small enough for a couple to sail easily and yet big enough for a family not to trip over each other. The cockpit offers lots of space and also protection, great for alfresco dining and family sailing.

Under the cockpit table is an insulated ice box, (very important!) A binnacle in front of the wheel houses autopilot, depth-speed and wind instrument with chart plotter. There’s plenty of room in the galley with a double sink, top-opening fridge, a two-burner gas hob with oven.

Outside, at anchor, there’s a stern platform which has a hot and cold shower for rinsing off after a swim, and lots of deck space for sun bathing, (of course!).

We love this yacht for

Her single wheel, easy sailing characteristics, fab performance and her good looks… what more do you need? Below deck the new Bav’ 37 seems bigger than you would expect it from a sailing yacht of this size. We also love the array of skylights which light up the stylish mahogany interior below. Which is great, because there’s a well thought out interior to look at. And after all, lots of light makes living board a happy thing indeed… for a week or two.

Bareboat Yacht Charter

This yacht is available for Bareboat Charter. A bareboat yacht charter is perfect for those with previous sailing experience who prefer to skipper their own yacht, decide on their own itinerary and the return to the yacht base at the end of the charter.

Alternatively, try our Flexi-Flotilla and mix up bareboat sailing with flotilla sailing as you choose, by dipping in and out of our sociable flotilla during your week.

Our flotillas attract a mix of novice and expert skippers to our fun, friendly and sociable cruises. Our lead boat is always on hand to help with all aspects of sailing from route planning to finding the best lunchtime anchorages and helping you moor up each night, so you can enjoy the sailing and forget about the admin!
