With the new BAVARIA C46, Bavaria Yachts announce an impressive addition to their C-LINE sailing yachts for 2023. With the BAVARIA C38 and C42 already delighting their customers today, Bavaria Yachts is presenting the next evolution.

For the new Bavaria C46, the C-LINE concept has been further developed and re-interpreted in all areas. For example, the characteristic features of the hull design with the typical Bavaria V-bow and chines, which not only give the Bavaria C46 impressive sailing characteristics, but also create more light space and living comfort below deck in the saloon as well as the cabins. The Bavaria C46 sets a new standard in its class and is a yacht that combines long-standing Bavaria strengths with new features, thus finding convincing solutions for many customers and requirements. Bavaria Yachts will present further details about the Bavaria C46 early next year at boot 2023.

The Bavaria C46 sets new standards in the combination of ample room, excellent sailing characteristics and innovative solutions. Like all C-LINE models, the Bavaria C46 was created in cooperation between the Bavaria development team and Cossutti Yacht Design and offers a convincing combination for the most diverse requirements on board.

The Bavaria C46 combines the typical generous Bavaria space on board and the proven Made-in-Germany solidity with even more sailing performance and greater comfort on board. The distinctive chines at the stern and the Bavaria V-bow have already given the Bavaria C38 and C42 exceptionally good and fast sailing characteristics.

Cossutti Yacht Design has again successfully applied this design philosophy to the 14.86 meters long and 4.70 meters wide hull of the Bavaria C46. As a result, the Bavaria C46 possesses agile steering, converts the wind even faster into boat speed and, at the same time, allows for maximally large cabins in the stern and foreship. Thus, space and sailing pleasure are a winning combination on the Bavaria C46.

"After the presentation of the C38 and C42, which was also named the 2021 European Yacht of the Year, our customers have very clearly signaled to us that they look forward to a quick continuation of the concept. Therefore, we have put all our energy into the further development of the concept and are now in a position to present our customers the Bavaria C46 with its convincing solutions," explains Marc Diening, CEO of Bavaria Yachts.

Whether relaxed and safe sailing with a small crew, single-handed sailing or cruising with a large crew with sporting ambitions - the Bavaria C46 offers all the necessary options for pure sailing pleasure with six optional winch positions, well over 100 square meters of sail area on the wind and optional Gennaker and Code 0.

From the very spacious cockpit, the sun loungers on the foredeck or after a relaxing time on the large bathing platform, you can quickly get into the water. Heavy but useful water sports equipment is always stored within reach in the Bavaria B-BOX, so that the hours at anchor or in water can be enjoyed in a relaxed way by the entire crew.

Decades of experience on coastal and long-distance cruises have shaped further smart options on board. Customers can choose from various layouts ranging from 3 to 5 cabins, including a 4-cabin layout with 4 in-suite heads or a 3-cabin layout with an additional separate room at the companionway. This can be used, for example, as a storage and tool room or as a directly accessible locker for wet oilskins. A full navigation station is always on board with the Bavaria C46.

"The requirements for a sailing yacht around 15 meters are much more versatile today and can no longer simply be divided into classic categories such as performance or family cruiser, charter or owner's yacht. During the development of the Bavaria C46, the focus was solely on what offers our customers real added value on board. And when looking for the right solution, detail by detail, we were able to disprove supposed necessary compromises in many places. With the Bavaria C46, we have found the balance that customers expect from a sailing yacht of this size with many well-thought-out solutions," reports Marc Diening.

In the first half of 2023, the Bavaria C46 will do her first test sails. Further details about the Bavaria C46 will be presented at boot 2023 in Duesseldorf from January 21 to 29.
