Here at Australiawide Boat Sales, we've known both 'Pipsqueak' and her owners since 'Pipsqueak' was launched late in 2008 and we are now delighted to offer her for sale. She's spent most of her time cruising the waters along the east coast of Australia, much of it in the tropics. As such she is well set up for shade with extensive covers that are all in very good condition. She's also had a few nice upgrades from the standard 38, including the 40hp diesel, a set of Li-Ion house and starter batteries and solar panels. Bavaria 38's are renowned for their excellent sea going performance combined with ease of handling and are well set up for short handed sailing. Some of their features not withstanding the exceptionally spacious interior, include a motorised rear swim platform creating a walk through transom, 17 opening ports or hatches, solid timber fit out, spacious berths, massive cockpit locker and large heads. Always kept in super condition inside and out by her fastidious owners, Pipsqueak has just been antifouled (Jan 2019), is Australian Registered, and very much For Sale. Contact us now to arrange an inspection.
