Like the French builders of Beneteaus, with their Oceanis and Sense lines, Bavaria now offers two distinct series of yachts: the Cruiser class and the Vision collection (a 42 was recently introduced, and a 50 is in the works). The Oceanis/Cruiser boats are updated but essentially traditional cruising yachts, while the Sense/Vision offerings are innovative, slightly hedonistic craft ideal for long-term living aboard (even parked at a dock) that put a heavy emphasis on big, inviting cockpits (outdoor living rooms, if you will). Both offer simplified optional docking systems that remove the trepidation from close-quarters maneuvering. The French call theirs the Dock & Go, while Bavaria has gone with the Bavaria Docking Control System. While the software, hardware and execution are actually quite different, the ultimate goal, in terms of practicality and marketing, is identical.
