The yacht's jib sheet travelers are placed on top of the superstructure leaving more space along the sides of the yacht.
The Bavaria Cruiser 51 has thirteen hatches, all placed at the same level of the deck which makes moving on the deck more comfortable and safest ever. The cockpit is equipped with a large table, solidly attached to the floor, with a large storage in its middle and glass holders at its ends. There is a large foldable swimming platform behind skipper’s back, which is being handled by remote control.
