That I don't know, I have not seen any Bavaria's on the hard, but Beneteau's seem to be very popular in the Galveston bay area, so there is more opportunity to see them. From what I see, most of them tend to just sail in the bay, which is huge, but has numerous opportunities to run aground if you aren't familiar with the bay - not sure how many of them go offshore.
This won't sit well with the Beneteau owners, but all of the people I know sail sturdy ocean going sail boats - Bristols, Pearsons, Cape Dorys, Hinckleys, Choy Lees... and most consider Beneteau's Clorex bottles with a stick in the top.
The Adriatic Sea is for me like a bay ;-)
2 meters of waves and 40kn of wind are happening sometimes.
With my Elan 333 i had never problems ... i suppose that with a modern Beneteau it would be the same ...
