Germany's Bavaria Yachts has announced that it hit a new sales record at Boot Düsseldorf last month, selling more than 160 boats

Bavaria Yachts has set a new sales record, selling more than 160 yachts at Boot Düsseldorf in January 2017.

At the show in Germany, Bavaria presented their complete range of catamarans, sailing and motor yachts.

During the nine days of the show and the following two weeks, the shipyard received more than 160 orders for new yachts.

This outperformed their own sales record at Boot Düsseldorf 2016, which saw them sell 133 vessels.

Bavaria Yachts, which is Europe’s second largest shipyard, said the analysis of the 2017 figures show that half of the sales were for sailing yachts and the other half were motor yacht sales.

As in the previous year, the number of catamarans sold also increased further.

There were two world premieres – the flagship Bavaria C57 and the Bavaria R40 Coupe.

The Bavaria E40 Fly had its German premiere, and visitors to the stand were also able to go on a virtual tour of the new E34, and saw renders of the Bavaria R55, which will be publicly unveiled in the autumn.

Bavaria Yachts said it is now looking forward to exhibition in shows in Istanbul, Miami, Fredericia and in Tulln.
