The Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH is a German major yacht builder, with its headquarters in Giebelstadt, Bavaria. The model range consists of both sailing and motor yachts, built along mass production principles. With approximately 2,500 sailing and motor yachts produced each year by 600 employees, the Bavaria Yachtbau is one of Europe's biggest yacht manufacturers.

In 2008, the company moved from J&J Yacht Design to a collaboration of Farr Yacht Design and BMW Designworks, but in 2013 unveiled a new product line with exterior styling and interior design by Design Unlimited (UK).

In June 2007 Bain Capital acquired Bavaria Yachtbau for a rumoured value of €1.3&billion.[1]
