Best sailing characteristics meet maximum comfort

The BAVARIA C38 combines perfect sailing characteristics, easy handling and maximum use of the interior space. Distinctive design features, such as the BAVARIA V-bow and Chines at the stern, guarantee safe and fast sailing characteristics and an incredible amount of space below deck. In the owner’s cabin in the bow, the double bed measures a sensational 1.73 x 2 metres. The berths in the stern cabins measure 1.50 x 2 metres, which must also be close to a record for this size of boat.

A new sense of space

The foredeck and side decks provide generous room for a sailing yacht of this size. The innovative hull design also opens up new dimensions below deck. Select from individual cabin layouts ranging from the luxurious 2-cabin version with a spacious bathroom to the comfortable 3-cabin version with two bathrooms.

The U-shaped seating area at the starboard side and the portside lounge bench easily cater for eight people during a cosy dinner. As in classic layouts, the L-shaped pantry is located portside.

Plenty of daylight in the spacious salon.
Breakfast, lunch or dinner – The large saloon table offers comfortable space for up to 8 people.

More than enough space for you and your guests

Thanks to the V-shaped bow and the large side windows, the bow cabin doesn’t simply appear spacious; when it comes to headroom and the space on offer, it’s close to unbeatable.

Owners can look forward to a real king size bed with a breadth of 1.73m and a length of 2m. Cupboards and abundant storage space go without saying.

Extra speed thanks to more sail area.

When developing the rigging and sail plan, the development team from BAVARIA YACHTS in collaboration with Cossutti Yacht Design focussed on two aspects in particular: easy handling and above-average performance. 46 square metres of sail area for the mainsail and 35 square metres for the genoa sail provide the BAVARIA C38 with an extra portion of power from the wind.

While sailing with the wind abeam or running before the wind, a Code 0 sail (70 square metres) and a gennaker (130 square metres) ensure maximum speed. The self-tacking jib means the easiest of handling when tacking. What’s more, it’s included in the standard version of the BAVARIA C38. In order to be able to perfectly trim the two-spreader mast on all courses, a backstay and backstay tensioner are also included in the BAVARIA C38’s basic equipment.

Deck Plans

When designing the deck layout, the BAVARIA YACHTS product management team concentrated their efforts on the essential characteristics in order to make space for an important aspect: the joy of sailing. The bow area and side deck provide an unusually large amount of space for a sailing yacht of this size.

The cockpit, with its ergonomically formed L-shaped seating bench, is also a space winner. That guarantees you a comfortable, fatigue-free seating position, whether you’re sailing close to the wind or enjoying a lavish lunch at the large cockpit table.
