Boat Description

42 Bavaria 04 Briar Rose

Briar Rose has been a very successful PHRF racer in Southern California, but doesnt show it. Her appearance is excellent and the boat has been upgraded and maintained meticulously. With accommodations for 7, she can be cruised or raced with full crew or shorthanded. The added bow spirit makes flying asymmetrical sails a breeze.
