It would be a challenge to find a Bavaria 50 Cruiser to match "Whitehaven". This is a rare and extraordinary vessel in terms of her immaculate condition (the result of unstinting maintenance and upgrades), the quality and level of equipment, and the sheer luxury below deck. And as you might expect with such beautiful lines she is a scintillating performer under sail or motor (75hp Volvo Penta), The features, to highlight just a few... *cutter rig, *powered primary winches, *bow thruster, *twin wheels (excellent visibility), *huge sheltered cockpit with fold leaf table, *wide uncluttered side decks with mid-ship boarding gates and step-through transom. And below deck, *the outstanding layout (ducted heating) *the fine timberwork, *the light and airy ambience, *the 4 x private cabins (3 with ensuites) etc. Storage above and below deck is sufficient for the full crew for an extended cruise. The electronics array and the electrical systems are immensely comprehensive. This vessel has been designed, built and equipped to safely cruise the world. While international cruising may not be your thing, it is nice to know the boat is capable. "Whitehaven" has benefited from a fastidious owner and is ready for you to step aboard and LIVE the CRUISING DREAM (just check the fuel and water first).
WARNING: Boats of this calibre have been selling within days (in some cases hours) of going on the market. CALL PAUL 0418 385 866 to arrange an inspection ASAP.

Welcome aboard! Step through the transom and between the twin wheels into the deep, safe, well-sheltered cockpit (seat 10 adults). Relax on the comfortable cockpit cushions around the teak table. Enjoy drinks and the food cooked on the pushpit mounted BBQ. The cockpit is an integral part of the accommodation. Wide companionway steps lead down into the magnificent, spacious saloon. The natural light from the many deck hatches and ports reflects on the fine timber-work. Aft on either side of the steps are huge double cabins, with hanging storage and plenty of secure portholes for light and cross ventilation. Each aft cabin has an ensuite. Forward of the saloon to port is a double bunk cabin with storage and good size single berths. The owner's cabin features an island queen-size berth (NOTE: In 2020 this bed was extended to full size and upholstered and a new custom inner-spring mattress plus memory foam topper were installed). There is a settee to starboard and a small desk/vanity to port and an en-suite, of course. There is generous provision for storage in hanging cupboards and storage lockers. In the saloon, the beautifully upholstered settee/lounge curves around a mahogany table. The midship settee tilts to reveal convenient storage under. The saloon sits 10 comfortably. The teak and holly cabin sole is beautiful. The U-shaped galley is comprehensively equipped and is strategically located opposite the dinette. To starboard is the navigation station designed and equipped for serious bluewater cruising.
4 sleeping cabins
The U-shaped galley is fully functional and safe at sea. It is equipped sufficient to keep the fussiest chef happy. There is plenty of Corian benchtop for food preparation and ample storage. A top-loading eutectic plus a separate upright Waeco fridge/freezer. The 3-burner stove with oven and grill is gimballed.
