A word about the term “bareboat.” Cosmos Yachting yachts are anything but bare. In addition to all the standard equipment you will enjoy:
Double staterooms, most with private heads and hot showers
– Freshwater showers on deck
– Fully appointed galleys, including cooking utensils
– Complete linens, including sheets, blankets, towels and pillows
– Uncluttered deck layouts
– Additional oversize ports and hatches for greater ventilation
– Bimini tops, barbecue grills, snorkeling gear and dinghies with outboards
The Newest Yachts And The Best Values Our Yachts are available at most of our locations around the world. They are fully equipped with all the extras a discriminating sailor could ask for.
– GPS satellite navigation system or chart plotter
– CD players with cockpit speakers
Guests who choose not to sail their yacht themselves have the option of adding a Skipper to their bareboat charter. If you have never sailed before, or if you would like to charter a yacht that is larger than you are comfortable handling, you can still sail the yacht of your dreams – with a little help. Your skipper brings years of sailing experience and a wealth of local knowlege, and will be your ideal guide to the pleasures of your cruising area.
Everyone loves to eat well when sailing, but not everyone enjoys working in the galley. Your charter cook helps you out by taking on everything from stowing provisions, to cooking and serving meals, to washing up afterwards. When you add a cook to your Moorings bareboat charter, you get more than just delicious meals prepared from the best local ingredients. You get time – time to spend with your family and friends sailing, snorkeling, or simply relaxing.
When adding crew to a bareboat, remember that your crew will require berths and provisioning for the duration of your charter. Since there are a limited number of cabins aboard each of our yachts, please be certain that the number of people in your party PLUS the number of crew you intend to hire do not exceed the maximum for the boat you would like to charter. Your Vacation Planning Specialist can help you choose the perfect boat for your party’s needs.

Bavaria Yachts GREECE is a trading title for Cosmos Yachting Hellas Maritime SA, Official dealer Bavaria Yachts. German boat builders have always prided themselves on the individuality of the vessels they build. If you are looking for a boat that is as unique and sturdy as it is handsome you need look no further than a Bavaria cruiser. Interiors of a Bavaria cruiser mark a sea-change in design. A Bavaria cruiser is indeed a stable, steady performer.
The Vision deck salon series embodies all the features that make Bavaria the fastest growing sailboat manufacturer in the world. Design, engineering, construction and performance are all evident throughout the entire line. Standard features include large workable galleys, stylish panoramic side windows, abundant storage including built-in drawers under the forward berth, solar-powered stainless steel vents, spinnaker winches and dual steering wheels.
Welcome to Bavaria Yachts GREECE!, a part of Cosmos Yachting Hellas Maritime SA
Tucked away in Northern Bavaria, miles away from the nearest major body of water, is the largest, and the most surprising boatbuilding facility in the world. Here, since 1979, Bavaria has been applying the principles of German engineering and European craftsmanship to building sailing yachts. Last year, in fact, we built over 2,000 boats, every one made to order, using computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques on the most innovative production line in boatbuilding.
The Bavaria Factory
Here are a few of its features:
Beam-to-beam assembly. Building out boats beam-to-beam rather than the traditional bow-to-stern means we can incorporate 31 stations on the assembly line, with fewer functions at any one station. This limits employee overcrowding and installation problems. This type of assembly also means that a Bavaria 31 and a Bavaria 50 can be produced on the same line.
A Robotic CNC machine. Cutouts for hatches and ports, drilling and taping for installing deck hardware and engine would normally take two men four hours. Our newest employee, a robotic CNC machine, can do it all in 20 minutes, with closer tolerances and improved accuracy.
A Chain Drive Mold Movement System. While hull and deck lamination is still done by hand, our chain drive mold movement system allows drying ovens and molds to be rotated on their cradles, dramatically reducing labor time.
Seamless Quality Control. Before a hull is laid up, all the material that will be used in the laminate for that model is cut to spec and loaded onto a trolley. This trolley accompanies the mold through the laminating section, and laminating is only complete when the trolley is empty.
