Re: Sailin Vith Bavaria 50 alone ?

Sorry, I have no knowledge of pricing or value on Bavarias. Nor do I know of a website from which you could buy directly from the owner. I'm sure someone will chime in.

Cheers.
Paul.

Sorry I don't know in detail the current prices, but there are a lot for sale. A few hours on the web should establish the baseline asking price. Expect most boats to be sold for 10-20% less.
Have someone experienced with sailboats help you with the inspections and then get a professional survey done on the chosen boat.

Don't underestimate the difficulties of sailing of a largish boat singlehanded with an inexperienced skipper.
If you approach with the attitude "it will be piece of cake" you will get into serious trouble. It will need a careful, cautious, approach recognising your limitations to be successful.

Re: Sailing a Bavaria 50 Alone?

here's a linik to some Bavarias
Second hand sailing boat ads - EYB

Here's another:
1200 Kg, 12er Jollenkreuzer, 12m R Yacht, brugte bde til salg, sejlbde motorbde motorsejler speedbde og joller

You might want to think about buying something 50 foot and over. I do not know the regulations where you live, but in Denmark, sailing anything over 50 feet, outside of Danish waters requires a Yacht Master 1st class license

You should check your country

Welcome to the forum and if you want ot tell us more about yourself - drop a post on the "meets and greets" forum.

I'll try to say this nicely - If you are an experienced sailor and asking this question - then the answer is "no". This is a very big boat. It is possible to singlehand someting like this, but few have the skills to do it.

I single hand a 54 footer. It is in some ways easier than single handing a smaller boat. The only real challenge is docking, and even that can be mastered eventually,

For EUR 150.000 You can find well maintained and equipped OCEAN STAR 51.2 in Greece.

51.2 feet yachts overview

Much better boat in my experience.
I used to own one

Cheers

Re: Sailing a Bavaria 50 Alone?

Whether or not a sailboat can be sailed by one sailor alone depends on skills of the sailor and then on the layout / equipment of the boat.

It also depends on what sort of sailing is in question.

I believe that anybody who is asking such a question cannot.

Re: Sailing a Bavaria 50 Alone?

Easily handled by one person. ...

You just need to have some skills which are not difficult to learn
