ranks among the largest yacht builders in Europe. Bavaria is located in Giebelstadt, Germany. The company was founded to produce sailing yachts that optimized price for performance. Bavaria makes use of modern manufacturing processes to reduce price. Assembly line production is employed for hulls and decks. As the deck fittings are mounted, the hulls are fitted on two assembly lines. An air-conditioned lamination hall, by temperature and humidity monitoring, aids in the yacht construction while hull and deck molds go through an 18-stage production. Sandwich-laminate technology is used on the part of the hull that sits above water and in the deck, which improves stiffness and eliminates condensation. The sizes of Bavaria sailing yachts range from 33 to 50 feet in overall length.
