    Of course they are lying :mad: . The fact is most manufacturers do not want the public knowing their boats' STIX numbers, for the people not comparing with other brands. Tell them so and ashame them.

    I have searched for the Bavaria 44 at the RYA Stability List ( but, although listed, its STIX doesn't appear. Sorry.

    If you know what category your yacht falls into (A, B, C or D) you know at least the range of the STIX number, for example Category B ranges from 23 to 32. A bavaria 44 is probably meant for open ocean (catergory A), so should have a minimum number of 32. Do you need to know the exact number, or is a safe estimate (32) sufficient?

    Thanks to everyone that tried to help on this matter, the reason I was asking is the Royal Ocean Racing Club need to have a STIX figure before we can enter the yacht into some of the races. I have emailed them the builders certificate which states it is built to cat A and should have the minimum requirement but they are still asking for the figure.
    The bavaria dealer have asked the factory several times and still no luck.
