My HIN last four digits are, “J001,” which I understand to mean she was commissioned in January 2001. I have seen the HIN explanation of the Bavaria HIN System in my Owner’s Manual. The Manual is on the boat and right now I am not, so I’m not able to give you a better idea at the moment. I hope this helps.
BTW, I’m really liking the Ocean 40… the more time I spend on Nashira, the more I like her!
If you’d like more information or can’t find the page in your Owner’s Manual, let me know and I’ll scan the HIN System page and email it to you.
