SAIL REVIEW | BAVARIA C45

Built for
Comfort and Speed

Story | Zuzana Prochazka

With their new midsized model, Bavaria has zeroed in on a
versatile design that ticks all the boxes: family friendly, flexible, fast and fun. Alliteration aside, you can hardly ask
much more of one boat than that it satisfies on so many
levels. The new Bavaria C45 is an all-around boat that can
hold her own in club races but will be a family favorite in
the anchorage on the weekends.
Safety Savvy
The bow is plumb and the hull is beamy. Twin wheels command a single rudder and the keel was flattened to reduce
wetted surface. With this new series, Bavaria introduced VacuTech, their version of a vacuum infused sandwich construction to optimize weight savings. The C45 can pick up and go
in a blow, but there's a serious nod to safety in many of her
onboard aspects.

The C45's nearly vertical transom opens into a swim platform that's almost eight feet across and it's a great way to board
from a dinghy or dock. The platform is also large enough to
safely accommodate kids getting ready to snorkel, a less agile
grandma keeping watch and the family dog ready to launch
into the water.
The cockpit above is divided into work and leisure spaces
so sailors can sail and loungers can lounge. Twin metal fivespoke wheels (upgradable to carbon) are suspended on large
binnacles. B&G instruments and multifunction displays are
on both sides so the driver doesn't have to dash back and forth
to get necessary data. For easy and safe docking, an optional
bow thruster by Sidepower is available and the control is at
the starboard helm.
The drop-leaf cockpit table opens down the middle rather
than from one side to the other. This provides secure passage
