Willkommen "ACappella" !!
After much anticipation, our *NEW* 2011 Bavaria 45 has arrived at our Vancouver
docks! She's just visiting, however, as she'll be spending most of this summer
in the natural beauty of Desolation Sound.
"ACappella" sleeps 8 in 4 cabins and features a powered retractable aft swim platform for
those warm Desolation Sound waters (22-26 degrees Celsius in the summer)!
This lovely lady is booked up for much of the summer already, but still has some time in August
and September for a lucky charterer!
