Perfect sailing performance.
When we designed the BAVARIA C45, we wanted to create a yacht which people would feel completely at home on – with features like the huge bathing platform, big cockpit and bright saloon – and also a yacht of the utmost flexibility. There are two versions available: ‘Holiday’ and ‘Style’.
Furthermore, this is the only yacht in its class available in a five-cabin version as well as three and four cabins, and which has a dinghy garage for a tender. The new BAVARIA C45 is an absolute all-rounder.
Clear lines and clearly very different.
Maurizio Cossutti and his team masterminded the design of the BAVARIA C45. They created something truly unique – an elongated hull with three big windows, a long window strip, a narrow looking superstructure – in short: a silhouette in the style of a superyacht.
This yacht sets a completely new, fresh tone in the 45‐foot sailing yacht segment.
What the silhouette starts, the deck continues.
Clear design dominates the BAVARIA C45. All of the hatches are recessed into the deck and provide ideal lighting and ventilation. The walk‐on deck and the superstructure are level, without any steps or edges. The cockpit is divided into two: a sailing and a relaxation area. Everything is designed with one objective: offering the perfect time to everyone on board – as befits a small superyacht.
And there are two versions:
Personal style in over 60 m².
A good interior is always a perfect combination of style and functionality. In the BAVARIA C45 you can help choose the style, especially by selecting the wood: classic mahogany, white oak or elegant walnut. All of it staged with lots of daylight, creating a naturally bright environment below deck. It feels as comfortable as your home on land.
Do you prefer darkly elegant?
Walnut’s rich tones create an understated elegance. It exudes lots of warmth and cosiness. The upholstery and the surfaces in the pantry provide brighter touches.
Or bright and friendly?
Tastes differ. It’s good to have the choice. White oak is for those who like things clear and open. The material’s brushed texture enhances its pleasantly natural feel.
Or perhaps a distinctive brown?
Mahogany – for everyone who loves a classic look. It’s especially popular for luxurious furniture. No wonder: it looks stunning and enhances any room.
Materials - Because the best is just right.
Quality always makes the difference. Why? Because you can simply tell when materials are special. You can feel it and you can see it. Solid wooden trim, for instance. It’s the love of detail that makes a yacht what it is – and, where it matters, hand craftsmanship. At BAVARIA YACHTS, the entire interior is made in Germany. Every single wooden component is varnished up to six times. This is a level of quality you simply can’t replace.
But it isn’t just us at BAVARIA YACHTS who are striving for the best result. Every stage of the creation of our yachts involves reliable, big‐name partners, each of them market leaders in their field. They too help ensure that the quality is up to the mark – for the best of times at sea.
Each room is given its own atmosphere by the way the interior is built. That’s why there are three types of wood to choose from: from dark (mahogany, walnut) to pale (white oak). All of the furnishings in the cabins and saloon are manufactured in modules, separately from the hull. The same goes for all the installations, the laying of cables and lines. At the end, each module is checked carefully to see that it works correctly, and only then installed.
Leather is one of the most beautiful and exclusive natural products. It’s tough and resilient on the one hand, but gives a wonderful feeling of comfort on the other. When you touch it, you can simply feel the exclusivity, and on the BAVARIA C45 it’s always carefully matched to the interior.
You can’t sail properly without the proper sail.
Every trip is different. And the demands on sails are equally diverse. So every trip has to begin with choosing the right sail. Day‐excursion? Sailing through an archipelago for a week at midsummer? Or is it going to be a really long voyage?
If you’re sailing on the open sea, the material your sail is made out of has to be able to cope with the weather conditions. Dimensional stability and durability are key. Find the right material with us:
Polyester Fabric (Dacron)
Polyester fabric has changed enormously in recent years and has developed to a very high standard. Dacron is the most popular sail material. It’s almost indestructible, very resistant to UV light, and economical too. That’s why it’s suitable for making sails for average demands.
Polyester Laminate DCX
Sails made of this material offer excellent dimensional stability. They’re low‐stretch, durable, and highly tear‐resistant. The advantage here is that you can sail more efficiently in different wind strengths without any loss of handling. That means you can sail fast – closer to the wind – with less listing.
The big advantage of nylon is that it can be woven very tightly. This produces a very light and strong fabric. Despite being so light, it exhibits high tensile strength. Because of that and because it’s so resistant to wear, this fabric is excellent for downwind sails like spinnakers and gennakers.
The exterior highlights of the BAVARIA C45.
The BAVARIA C45 is a highlight in itself - in terms of design and comfort. Nevertheless, we would like to highlight a few features that are simply unusual for a yacht in this class.
- Dinghy garage
- Wetbar with BBQ grill
- Twin table cockpit
- XXL bathing platform
- Lying areas on the cockpit
- River hatches in the deck
- Self-tacking jib
- Double wheel steering
- Teak deck
- Hull window
- Extra lying areas
- The stylish light strip
- Lower deck furler
- The pre-balanced rudder blade
Fun meets safety. The BAVARIA C45 impresses on the one hand with its good sailing properties, on the other hand, it is very safe to sail. It is trimmed and controlled by the two control columns in the rear cockpit: sails are set using the four winches and trimmed precisely in every situation. From the steering position, you also have a perfect overview of all navigation devices, the sails and the course.
All the traps and sheets for the sails run in the superstructure to the stern. In terms of sailing characteristics, this yacht is safe even in harsh conditions. A sporty rig allows perfect trim.
