Seller's Description

Offered for $5,500 or best offer. Must be sold this month. You won’t find many Bavarias this size in the USA. This one was sailed across the Atlantic by her original German owner. This is a model 820. The 31-footers go for $40,000 in Europe, and this one could be worth $25,000 if the cosmetics were attended to (in my opinion). Bavarias are built solidly. Had a baby, need a bigger boat. This one has some cosmetic issues but for coastal cruising is in great shape. I will try to disclose all I can since the boat is located in a marina in San Pedro, a couple hours from where I live. I can be there Saturday morning August 6. The slip is not transferable, but I only had to wait 30 days for it. Wilmington has plenty of slips available.

Equipment: New in 2022: Ullman headsail and 110% jib, jib sheets, 5 kW Thunderstruck electric motor with 100 Ah LiFePO4 48v battery bank, 18 amp 48 volt charger, battery monitor, 12v 10amp charger (works off the 48v bank), Sunbrella cockpit cushions with dry fast open cell foam (does not stay wet) canvas cockpit cushions with 6” foam, headsail cover, 14 lb. Lewmar plow anchor with 150 ft. rope rode, three offshore style life vests, mainsail sheet, 2 deep cycle batteries, Thetford 365 Portapotti, battery fuse system for the 12v battery banks (the boat originally did not fuse the battery bank). Also has Danforth style anchor with chain and rope rode. Navigation and steaming lights work. Radio works ok, probably needs new antenna. Cushion stitching is not professional. Deck paint and topsides worn. Stainless is there for dodger and old dodger pattern on board. Running rigging decent. Bottom paint decent. Schaefer headsail roller furler works good. Tiller freshly varnished, has new Tiller Tamer. One nice thing about the electric motor is that the motor is regenerative. Your propeller can charge the battery as you sail. Exclusion: personal effects including oil lamp and portable generator. 9.8 Bris RIB dinghy included at full price, used only once. Honda outboard not included at this price. LED lighting in v-berth.

Calculations

Hull Speed
7.1 kn
Classic: 6.29 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Formula

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

7.14 knots
Classic formula: 6.29 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
14.4
<16: under powered

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

Formula

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
14.38
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
?

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

?
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
230.2
200-275: moderate

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
230.16
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
19.3
<20: lightweight racing boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Formula

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
19.27
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
2.0
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
2.04
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
