Outboards are the current trend and Bavaria, as reported by IBI, fills the “gap” in this market range with the acquisition of Greenline’s Neo line from the Slovenian shipyard SVP. This kind of boats has already been very successful in the world of day cruisers and now will offer the opportunity to Bavaria Yachts to debut with an acclaimed in the outboard market, also considering the great success of outboards.
The announcement comes after the yard presented the new Bavaria SR41 at Boot Düsseldorf. Managing directors Michael Müller, Bavaria Yachts, and Vladmir Zinchenko of SVP Yachts signed the agreement for the acquisition of the Greeline Neo series. From the project to the construction rights, including the molds and production tools of SVP Yachts are now available to Bavaria.
The Greenline Neo series was one of the most popular in 2019 being also a finalist of the Best of Boats Award presented during the Berlin Boat Show. The first model of the new line will be produced at the Bavarian shipyard in Giebelstadt, southern Germany, starting in September.
This is how Neo will become Bavaria.
The Neo series, managed by Bavaria’s designers, will, however, change according to the vision of the German shipyard. The deck and interior must be “optimized and adapted to Bavaria’s DNA”, reports IBI. The day cruiser will be offered with two 300 hp outboard engines and Bavaria plans to announce the brand for the new day cruiser series in the spring.
