NB&G 2015: Bauteck Marine

BAUTECK MARINE

Bauteck Marine Corporation has been building custom, high-quality fiberglass dinghies and daysailers since 1983. Owner/designer Christof Bauer and his crew of skilled craftsmen take pride in their philosophy of “quality without compromise,” producing traditional craft of exceptional quality and performance. The bauer 8 is the perfect all-purpose dinghy (row or sail), the bauer 10 is the ideal yachtender/daysailer and the bauer 12 is an outstanding daysailer and school trainer. Classic lines, high freeboard, wide beam, full length keel, high load capacity and exceptional stability are synonymous with bauer boats. Exciting to sail and a dream to row, bauer boats are versatile, fun, fast and high-spirited, yet exceptionally well mannered, dependable and forgiving and can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. All bauer boats have an interior liner and displacement hull design and each sailboat comes equipped with a retractable centerboard and beaching rudder. We offer a wide variety of options and accessories and we’ll customize to fit your specific needs.
