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 therefore three versions: ‘Holiday’, ‘Style’ and ‘Ambition’. 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.

Top-Highlights on the BAVARIA C45

  • The Dinghy Garage

    Unique in this size category, it can swallow a dinghy up to 2.20 metres in length above the bathing platform at the stern, in just a few moves. The garage is also the ideal place to store diving equipment and other watersports equipment.

  • The Cockpit

    At the front there are two spacious sunbathing areas and two big cockpit tables. At the rear there are two steering pedestals with all the instruments arranged around them, and a wet bar with BBQ grill..

  • Choice of Cabins

    At 13.98 metres, the BAVARIA C45 offers unique space options below deck. As well as being available in a three and four cabin version, there’s even a five-cabin version with bunk beds.An all-rounder, through and through.

  • Wet Bar with BBQ Grill

    The cockpit area converts into a barbecue area. It’s simple, thanks to a lowerable barbecue and fold‐up wet bar including fridge.

  • Dual wheel steering

    Keep everything in view – that’s what’s important. Not just the sails and the course, but, thanks to the latest technology, many other things on board.

  • XXL bathing platform

    A delightful place to swim or prepare for a dive. At 2.38 metres wide, there’s space for everything and everybody.

    Nice and fast, nice and safe.

    Fun meets safety. The BAVARIA C45 offers great sailing performance on the one hand and safe sailing on the other. You can trim and steer it from the two steering pedestals in the back cockpit, setting and carefully trimming the sails to every situation using the four winches. The helmstand also gives you a perfect view over all the navigation equipment, the sails and the course ahead.

    Speed was one of our objectives.

    The overall design of the BAVARIA C45 is a picture of clarity, and the deck layout is clear and uncluttered too. All of the halyards and sheets for the sails run to the stern inside the superstructure. When it comes to sailing performance, this yacht is safe even under severe conditions. A performance rig assists in perfect trimming.

    Speed was important to us. For example, the self-tacking jib guarantees fast turning when tacking. A big gennaker gets you moving quickly, and it’s set and stowed using a furler. A perfectly balanced rudder blade also makes itself felt in performance. The BAVARIA C45 obeys every rudder movement under sail and when manoeuvring at port.

    And, being lighter than other yachts is almost a matter of course for us – thanks to VacuTec technology, made by BAVARIA.

    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.

    • 13.98 metres long but feels like a superyacht
    • Available in three equipment versions
    • Narrow looking superstructure and elongated hull
    • Intelligent lighting concept

    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 even three versions:

    • "Holiday" Version

      Take an extended trip from day one of sailing: the BAVARIA C45 HOLIDAY has everything that skipper and crew need to set off. The standard edition includes anchor winches, sails and navigation – all on board, everything ready.

    • "Style" Version

      Fine woods and high‐grade materials: the interior of the BAVARIA C45 STYLE provides an elevated ambience and extremely comfortable fittings and furnishings. You will also find everything on board that constitutes standard equipment. Grey decorative stripes along the hull catch the eye and give the STYLE version its special appearance.

    • "Ambition" Version

      If you love the sporty side of sailing, we developed the BAVARIA C45 AMBITION specially for you. It has a slightly more dynamic design and even better sailing performance. The mast – made of carbon if required – is higher, the stern is open. But you still don’t have to do without a bathing platform.

      Exterior Highlights of the BAVARIA C45

      In terms of design and comfort, the BAVARIA C45 is a highlight in itself. But we want to describe some other features for you which are unusual for a yacht in this category.

      01. Dinghy garage

      Truly unique. There’s no other yacht in the world in this class which offers a dinghy garage for a tender in the stern.

      02. Wet bar with bbq grill

      The cockpit area converts into a barbecue area. It’s simple, thanks to a lowerable barbecue and fold‐up wet bar including fridge.

      03. Twin‐table cockpit

      Delicious lunch, culinary dinner or just for relaxing – the tables in the cockpit can be lowered in just a few moves to create a lounge area.

      04. XXL bathing platforms

      A delightful place to swim or prepare for a dive. At 2.38 metres wide, there’s space for everything and everybody.

      05. Sunbathing areas at the cockpit

      If you feel like a change of sunbathing venue, you can use the two spacious sunbathing areas right next to the ladderway.

      06. Flush hatches in the deck

      Not everyone offers these, but we consider them a sign of good design. All of the hatches in the deck and in the superstructure are recessed.

      07. Self‐tacking jib

      Makes tacking into the wind a pure pleasure: simply set the rudder, turn – and on you go.

      08. Dual wheel steering

      Keep everything in view – that’s what’s important. Not just the sails and the course, but, thanks to the latest technology, many other things on board.

      09. Teak deck

      Looks better, feels better and corresponds with our idea of the art of boat building: optional teak laid in the cockpit and on all the walk‐on decks.

      10. Hull windows

      Big hull windows match the design of the elongated hull and provide lots of extra light below deck.

      11. Extra sunbathing areas

      If you’re looking for an alternative to the sunbathing surfaces in the cockpit area, you’ll find it on the foredeck and under the boom..

      12. Stylish light strip

      You can never get enough natural light. Which is why extra‐long windows have been incorporated to add brightness to the saloon.

      13. Under‐deck furler

      Self‐tacking jib and genoa are stowed below deck on a rolling system. To us that’s a matter of good design, simplicity and performance.

      14. Vacutec hull

      The latest technology made by BAVARIA YACHTS. VacuTec makes the hull stronger and lighter than normal hull‐building methods..

      15. Pre‐balanced rudder blade

      Tested repeatedly in a flow channel and fitted with a self‐aligning bearing, it provides greater balance and agility when manoeuvring under sail.

      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.

      • Laid out using a specially developed modular system
      • Huge living area of 61.06 sqm
      • Big saloon with fantastically equipped pantry
      • Three wood colours available to choose from

      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.

      An unusual level of luxury in this class: the owner’s cabin.

      A wonderfully big, queen-sized bed with a splendid view.

      Spacious saloon for socialising with family and friends.

      Bathroom with separate shower cabin and high-quality fittings.

      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.

      Bright delight, luxury haven: the owner’s cabin.

      Space even for ambitious cooks and their helpers.

      Control centre with map table and navigation equipment.

      The bathroom is luxurious too, with a separate shower cabin.

      Or perhaps a distinctive brown?

      Mahogany is an especially fine, high-quality tropical wood. It’s especially popular for luxurious furniture. No wonder: it looks stunning and enhances any room.

      Space for everything and everyone: the BAVARIA C45’s generous saloon.

      The owner’s cabin offers lots of light and a cosy atmosphere.

      A high-quality bathroom with lots of space to look after yourself.

      Even the aft cabin is not without its luxuries.

      Now you can even navigate through your own yacht.

      We’re all familiar with smart home technology for houses. BAVARIA YACHTS has now made its boats smart, allowing almost the entire yacht to be operated from your plotter – or your tablet or smartphone.

      Standing at the rudder, controlling the lights in the foreship cabin? Yes, you can. Switching navigating lights on and off? Also. Controlling music, heating, refrigerator or anchor winch? Not a problem. View the level of your tanks? Check. A data network makes all this possible. And of course, the plotter can navigate you and display nautical data as usual. Smart, don’t you think?

      A remote control – for yachts

      The experts at Navico have teamed up with Naviop to develop user interfaces for the plotter and switch boxes. This allows electrical and electronic components to communicate with one another. It’s new and it makes everything much, much easier.

      And safer too, because you can keep an eye on all the important things digitally: full information about the yacht, including system diagnostics to tell you that everything is working correctly. Are the tanks full enough? Are the batteries charged? In an emergency, you can even get help from the 24/7 help desk, or an expert can connect up via ‘Remote Support’. All of this is controlled using a very simple user interface.

      Keeping an eye on everything: are the right navigating lights on? How’s the battery? What’s the sonar saying? And much more.

      Tank levels displayed with perfect clarity.

      Battery levels and other consumer points can be checked and displayed to ensure that everything keeps working.

      You can keep an eye on all the systems and data at all times, even from your home, hundreds of miles away.

      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.

      Bavaria Vacutec – used in these yachts too.

      Like all BAVARIA YACHTS, the Bavaria C45 and C50 are made using a special, innovative process: vacuum infusion technology, which we call BAVARIA VacuTec. This results in a stronger but lighter boat.

      1. Mould tool
      2. Gelcoat and GRP laminate
      3. Peel ply
      4. Permeable film
      5. Resin flow mesh
      1. Vacuum bagging film
      2. Vacuum control valve
      3. Resin flow channel
      4. Sealing tape

      The how makes the wow.

      The interior

      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.

      The leather

      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 and C50 it’s always carefully matched to the interior.

      The floor

      Floors on yachts have to put up with a lot. Water, heat, knocks. That’s why they have to be extraordinarily tough. We only use materials that can withstand every step, every kind of pressure and every weather. And we install them in a functional design and at the top quality level.

      Without equal – the bavaria c45 layouts.

      Yachts of this size often come in three- and four-cabin versions. But the BAVARIA C45 even comes with five cabins. That’s a world-first. All of the layouts – a total of ten – boast a brightly lit saloon and top comfort levels, thanks to high-quality materials and masses of storage space.

      What’s great about it is that you never feel hemmed in, even if you choose more cabins. All of them still have ample space for relaxing and enjoying, which is what it’s all about.
