Bavaria C42

Bavaria C42 - Bareboat incl. with skipper Monohulls

One of Bavaria's contemporary or Cruiser range, the C42 was introduced in 2020. It is quite an advance on earlier Bavarian models of similar size, with wider beam, longer waterline, higher topsides and more pronounced chines, all of which gives charterers a stable platform under sail and more space below. In 2021 the French Voile magazine named the Bavaria C42 European Yacht of the Year in the ‘family cruiser’ category.

The latest Bavaria Cruisers, their hulls distinctive with 'V' shape and prominent chines, provide more space than other monohulls of equivalent size, both on deck and below. That's what makes them so good for chartering if you're looking for a monohull sailboat to holday aboard. 

With its better use of traditional size constraints, the Bavaria C42, like its sister boats, has a big, wide roomy cockpit where everyone can find a comfortable spot while sailing or enjoying a meal at the cockpit table. This area is enhanced by the drop-down swimming / boarding platform when anchored or tied up. The twin helm stations are set right back aft with winches alongside, all controls set up for easy sailing by two people. There's also a pair of winches on the cabin top for complete sail management from the cockpit. 

Forward of the mast there's lots of room to enjoy the sailing or simply relax in the sun, and the side decks are nice and wide for movement fore and aft. 

Below deck the benefits of hull shape become clear, with bigger stern and forward cabins and a wide, bright, airy saloon with two-metre headroom for maximum crew comfort. The fold-out table in the saloon easily seats eight people. Naturally, the galley and small office area are fully fitted out with all the fixtures and equipment needed for modern life on board, even when on vacation!
