The new Bavaria C45 and C50 will make their world premieres at Boot Düsseldorf. Bavaria Yachts will have 26 yachts on display at their 4,000m2 Bavaria World exhibition, with a total of 8 World Premieres.
With the design of the Bavaria C45, Bavaria Yachts will offer a brand new approach to sailing yachts of around 45 foot. In silhouette the Bavaria C45 looks like a superyacht thanks to the extended hull with its three large windows, and the slim-line appearance of the structure created by the long band of windows.
And the Bavaria C45 doesn’t lag behind the superyachts when it comes to stylish details either. All the hatches that are part of the clever lighting and ventilation concept of the Bavaria C45 are flush into the deck. The deck and structure are all level areas without steps or edges, just like on an actual superyacht.
In the cockpit, a clear separation is made between relaxation and the joy of sailing. Anyone wanting to enjoy some sunbathing can do this in the large cockpit. Along with its two large reclining areas, this is also the best place to enjoy lunch at the two large tables or to enjoy a BBQ from the grill right at the stern of the Bavaria C45.
The Bavaria C45 is trimmed and steered from the two helmstations at the rear of the cockpit. The sails are set by the four windlasses situated right next to the two wheels and can be trimmed easily and precisely at any moment. From the two steering columns, the helmsman has the perfect overview of the sails, all navigational instruments and, of course, the Bavaria C45 itself.
As a world first on a 45-foot sailing yacht, Bavaria Yachts provides space for the dinghy in the stern. At the touch of a hand, the dinghy disappears over the bathing platform in the stern ready for sailing. As a result, it doesn’t impact space in the forecastle. If a dinghy isn’t required, then the dinghy garage is the perfect stowage for diving gear and other sporting equipment.
The Bavaria C45 jumps at the lightest breath of wind and can be sailed reliably and fast even under harsh conditions.
It was always important to the Bavaria Yachts development team that the Bavaria C45 is easy to sail and not just fast. The self-tacking jib guarantees quick and precise turns. A large gennaker, which can be easily set and retrieved by a furler, ensures fast sailing with following winds. At the wheel, the helmsman can feel the boat’s performance in his fingertips thanks to the perfectly balanced rudder blade. The Bavaria C45 obeys every rudder movement perfectly, both under sail and when manoeuvring in port.
The 4th entry into the C-Line, the new Bavaria C50 offers a smooth hull, and dynamic performance.
Above deck on the Bavaria C50 there are a number of elements that can otherwise only be found in superyachts. Flush hatches as part of a clever light and ventilation concept below deck. The structure and the tidy forecastle of the Bavaria C50 emphasize the extended lines of the hull.
The navigation area on the starboard side is not just the central area for all navigational issues, it is also the control centre for all systems on board and, of course, a complete home office for anyone who can’t stay away from the office even on holiday.
Pure daylight shines through the large hull windows on to the large U-shaped corner seating area on the port side and the lounge area on the starboard side. Nothing stands in the way of a relaxed crew dinner or a relaxing evening with a good glass of wine.
The deck layout of the Bavaria C50 is designed for fast and relaxed sailing. With two winches on each of the port and starboard sides on the helmstands, the sails can be easily set and retrieved in all conditions and, of course, trimmed. From the helmstand, the helmsman always has the Bavaria C50, all the instruments and the sail in sight. Turning with the self-tacking jib is child’s play and allows the Bavaria C50 to be controlled with just one hand.
On board the Bavaria C50, relaxation is very much at the forefront, along with the joy of sailing. Behind the large bathing platform there is a dinghy garage and stowage space for everything needed for diving or snorkelling.
Designed by Maurizio Cossutti and Alessandro Ganz from Cossutti Yachts Design, these new Bavaria models offer great sailing performance and reliable handling. They have poured their collective experience gained from regatta and cruising yachts into the new Bavaria models, meaning that these new yachts can boast good sailing performance and an enormous speed potential from the moment it leaves the shipyard.
