The Austrian Pitter Yachtcharter has enlarged its One-Design-Fleets during the past months. From the easy-to-handle holiday cruising yacht with jib and main furlers to all-equipped high-performance racers. The fast Bavaria Cruiser 40S are ideal sportboats for the races, organised by Pitter along the pittoresque Croatian coast, such as the Kornati Cup, the Business Cup, The Race or the Austrian Offshore Championship. Thanks to the roomy interior, this racer can as well be enjoyed as holiday cruiser.
In 2015, the well-known Pitter Yachtcharter runs 10 base camps in Croatia, from Istria in the North to Split in Middle Dalmatia. All Pitter Yachts are equipped with a W-LAN-stick for free of charge online Internet access. All other details re charter yachts and regattas on the Pitter website.
