This Bavaria 38 Holiday makes a comfortable and practical liveaboard or holiday cruiser. She is the 3 cabin / 2 heads version and is well equipped and set up for Med cruising in comfort (Having extended water tanks, solar/wind generation and large leisure battery bank).

The engine was replaced in 2016 has low hours (500) and has been regularly serviced since. The engine was replaced originally as it broke during the Greek credit crunch and the only way for the previous owner to continue cruising was to ship in a new one. The engine has been dependable and given us real peace of mind.

The new rigging in 2020 has given us confidence when we were caught out in winds up to 50 knots in the Aegean.

Similarly the new in 2020 Rocna 20kg spade anchor has proven itself to hold in 50 knot winds (on several occasions in the Aegean) without slipping.

Bits to address before next season:

Some of the sheets could do with replacing.

There is a bit of rust visible on the keel that will need to be stripped back and sealed.

The mainsail is serviceable, but you may prefer to replace it.

Apart from normal maintenance, Ethos is ready to go.

In summary, this is a dependable, well equipped boat that is ready to comfortably cruise the Mediterranean. We saw many Bavaria 38's before settling on Ethos, and she is the best example we came across.

Please get in contact for more pictures, or to arrange viewing (we are also able to do viewings over Facetime/Whatsapp video). We are currently in the Ionian, please get in contact to arrange coming out to see the boat. Preveza is the nearest Airport.

Ethos has been owned by three private owners since new.
