Maintaining the fresh washer

My first boat came with the fresh water tank full, the water was coming out of the tap clean and without any odor. At that point in time my focus was on how to keep it that way. I googled so much about it, that I was coming to the conclusion that I should apply for a Chemistry major, boat owners are...

R40 Fly Bridge (@ Miami Boat show)

As an owner of a Regal 35 Sport Coup, I felt comfortable that Bavaria included all the features I am used to and more.

Re: New Member Introduction

Well, I hope this becomes a reference site for the Bavaria Yachts owners.

I just joined the Bavaria family by ordering a Bavaria R40 Coupe... I can't wait for her to arrive!

My boating area is Miami, normally around the Biscayne Bay, the Keys and Bahamas.
