That's too bad, maybe it was bad timing on our part. There was a woman there that just took our info for contact. She didn't know much, maybe she was a broker.

Same thing in North america regarding european boats. Lots of bad comments about the quality bavaria, elan, etap, etc. most seem to think that european boats are of low quality.

just proves he didnt even bother to look at his own marketing material...the 40.3 has a layout that's designed for the charter market! it has 4 staterooms in a 40ft boat!

They even have a charter page on the website!
http://en.delphiayachts.eu/charter

Delphia however at least takes the time (from what i was told by an owner) to tab the bulkheads to the deck! how many mass production builders do that anymore??

On Bavaria they talk about glassed and also about bonded bulkheads. On that kind of structure I believe a good bonding agent would be more effective since the surface (below) would be much bigger. Typically those structures are structurally bonded.

Has Bavaria taken it up a notch recently??

Well, as I have misunderstood you. Many talk about boats that are used in charter as if they were designed specifically for charter and as if being used on charter would make them kind of inferior boats. Probably what that dealer thought you were inferring.

I have looked at some 40ft slightly used Delphias for a friend. You can find them in Europe, particularly in Italy at a great prices, with just a few years.

Regarding Charter that dealer was really out of this world since Delphia, or Delphia dealers worldwide run directly Delphias on the charter Business. You have just to look at the Delphia site to see that they run directly a charter business.

Well, not really unless you consider the Vision series that has a bit better interior quality (don't know if structurally too). After the problem on the keels on the Match 42 they have concentrated in making stronger boats, but that it was long ago. In fact contrary to some French brands that used light as a promotional strategy (light equals well built and faster) they started to make heavier boats and say as promotional strategy: we are heavier, we are stronger

Exactly, that was my point. Most of this boat comparison is either nonsense , fuelled by a mis understanding of modern boatbuilding techniques , national bias , or boat owners patting them selves on the back

The funny thing is, while European production sailing boats have a big slice of the US market, the reverse is not true , with the exception of the small sports power boat market. Hmmm

Re: Went to the Boatshow Today...

The new boats are terrific when it comes to room and especially the cockpits for entertaining but personally other than just a couple I have seen very few that I consider pretty/handsome or whatever word you choose to describe something of beauty. It just seems to me that the designers and builders are adding every square inch they can to gain a little more space in the boats with that as their sole goal. Anybody else feel the same or am I living so much in the past that I am no longer with it when I think of beautiful boats. No comment necessary from you Polux, LOL

Re: Went to the Boatshow Today...

I just remembered another boat that I saw at the Toronto boat show that I thought was on the decent looking side.
I thought the Polish built Tes 28 was a very nice boat. Nicely built interior, real would, fantastic layout (including handhold's etc.). It even had a v-birth and aft cabin layout. In a 28!
I was a little disappointed when the salesman told me the 28 was their largest model.

Wow! Good comparison. The Bavaria looks very odd in comparison. Camera angle certainly played a role. But the Bavaria shouldn't look that... strange... from any angle.
