Hi there, I’m the new member of this family and I’m very happy about it!
But let me explain shortly, what I did so far:
Built in 2005, I’m a thoroughbred BAVARIA CRUISER 42. My first home was in Finland and apparently my owner took great care of me. That’s why I still look so pretty! He baptized me to the name of DORAH.
In 2015 he decided to move to Mallorca – including me! That was an adventure of course and I enjoyed the long sailing trip (naturally, I’m a sailing vessel, hahaha)!
Unfortunately, on the island I got quite bored, since my owner unexpectedly didn’t have much time to enjoy my company anymore. So I was more or less sitting in the marina of Palma and envied the other yachts, which were taken out sailing…
At least I got still maintained….
Then, last winter my owner finally decided to sell me. It came a bit as a shock for me, and suddenly unknown people were examining me, taking pictures and I received a proper swab and all around service.
People came and visited me, said they were interested….which they weren’t in the end. Well, apparently I had to wait for the right ones – which turned out to be Diana and Patrik……..ah and Odin, their furry companion…..aw sorry, he is actually the Admiral…!
So end of May 2018 I moved from Palma di Mallorca to Barcelona, to the big Bavaria workshop. There they did some repairs and in mid-July, Diana and Patrik picked me up, in order to sail me to Italy – to my new home!
I probably don’t have to mention, how excited I was! Finally a proper sailing trip again, after all this time! *splash*
And, boy, I do love my new marina! It’s in Loano and called….well….Marina di Loano! Very posh with enough space around me! I do also get a lot of visitors, some just admiring me and others wondering who this new one is
Doesn’t matter actually, it never gets boring and that’s the main thing, isn’t it?!
And hey, I also got a new name: LUNA AZZURRA ! Isn’t it beautiful? And so chic….it truly suits me, I suppose!
