The yacht – S/Y Chronos

Chronos - Bavaria 50 - 5 cabin - 1999 model

Location de voilier - Sail & Discover

This Bavaria 50 model was the first 50 feet launched by Bavaria in 1998 and the flag ship of the yard at this time. 
It is a solid built vessel and a seaworthy sailboat with a warm exotic wooden interior and spacious 3 double cabins and two bunk cabins.

Designed for offshore cruising, the Bavaria has a functional U-shaped galley and good storage space.

Its spacious cockpit can easily accommodate 8 people around its large table.

The sailboat has proven its value and most of the units built at the time still sail to the greatest satisfaction of their owners, whether for private or professional use.
