The German Bavaria Yachts group has been taken over by Michael Müller . He will be responsible for the entire group, including Bavaria's «owned» shipyard Nautitech Catamarans, located in France.

«I will use my experience gained from working on other leading brands to strengthen Bavaria Yachts' position as a builder of quality modern sailing and motor yachts. At the moment our entire team is concentrating on preparing the delivery season. We will deliver the boats in time and in good quality so that the vessels we have orders for will be launched in the spring. In addition, we are constantly improving our production lines in Giebelstadt»," said Michael Muller himself.
Today the Bavaria Yachts Group employs 800 people. 550 of them work in Giebelstadt, the rest in Rochefort, where Nautitech catamaran production is located.
