Bavaria Cruiser 46


The Bavaria Cruiser 46 was awarded European Yacht of the Year for 2015 – Read more here!

BAVARIA scores a hat-trick – hot on the heels of the CRUISER 37 and 41 comes the Bavaria 46. Like all of the new CRUISER line, the new Bavaria 46 was developed by BAVARIA together with two of the leading companies in the boating industry: Farr Yacht Design (USA), focused primarily on the naval architecture and structural engineering and lamination schedule, and Design Unlimited (UK), responsible for both the exterior styling and interior design details.
The design highlights include large and aesthetic coach roof windows, a modern and purposeful profile, predictably, the largest bathing platform in her class, electrically raised and lowered (very James Bond) and twin rudders. With so much beam aft, twin rudders are necessary to ensure predictable steering at higher angles of heel, which a center-line single rudder could only achieve through a very deep draft. The added bonus is that while this extremely robust dual Lewmar system is unlikely to ever give problems, the rudders can be used independently in the event of a steering failure on one side.

The Bavaria 46 is cavernous below decks. 3 double cabins, 3 heads and showers, all en suite, and the master suite has the shower room to port, and the head and basin separately to starboard. Outrageously civilised. The saloon table can have a navigation table incorporated into it, and the sofa extends to comfortably seat 10 around the table. Couple the on-board amenities with impressive sailing performance, massive storage in the cockpit area and the Bavaria 46 is a true blue water passage maker.

What’s more, in the 4 cabin version, the master suite accommodation forward can (by simply removing a longitudinal modular bulkhead) be converted into two double cabins.
With interior joinery available in bosse mahogany, oak or walnut, and with 9 styles of upholstery to choose from, this spacious and ergonomic Bavaria 46 can be customized to your individual requirements.
