2021 Bavaria C38
Best sailing characteristics meet maximum comfortby Sulthoni, on
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.
2021 Bavaria C38
More volume and more performance thanks to chines and V-shaped bow
These striking hull design characteristics not only give the BAVARIA C38 more space below deck, they also provide unusual good sailing performance.
BAVARIA Chines and BAVARIA V-shaped bow: These striking hull design characteristics not only give the BAVARIA C38 more space below deck, they also provide unusual good sailing performance. The BAVARIA Chines ensure more stability, a longer waterline and therefore better performance and a more direct feeling when steering. But the prominent angle at the stern of the BAVARIA C38 has another advantage. It yields more space for the stern cabin, providing more comfort.
More space for the joy of sailing
The bow area and side deck provide an unusually large amount of space for a sailing yacht of this size.
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.
A new sense of space
The U-shaped seating area at the starboard side and the portside lounge bench easily cater for eight people during a cosy dinner.
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.
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
46 square metres of sail area for the mainsail and 35 square metres for the genoa sail provides the BAVARIA C38 with an extra portion of power from the wind.
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 provides 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.
Many features are standardly included in the BAVARIA C38 series models. These include the self-tacking jib and a sail area of 79.3 m². Experience the impressive BAVARIA C38 dimensions for yourself.
