The new yacht in the renewed Cruiser line is the Bavaria Cruiser 41. LOA of this yacht is 12.35 m and the hull is 11.99 m long. Her beam has the length of 3.96 m, while the standard draft is 2.05 m. Optionally, the draft can have a 1.65 m keel. Displacement of the empty yacht amounts to 8.869 kg while ballast makes up 2736 kg of that amount.
The technical data mentioned above can be interesting for more experienced and skilled skippers. To those who are not that interested in the technical details it will be interesting to know that this yacht was designed to provide freedom, luxury and excellent sailing performances.
The Bavaria 41 Cruiser design is the result of the cooperation between Farr Yacht Design from the USA and Design Unlimited from the UK. The yacht deck is pretty flat and smooth, while the ceiling in the front cabin is high enough to allow a grown person to stand straight. The cockpit is wide and spacious with enough space for all crew members to sit comfortably. The double-wheel steering system provides an excellent view to all the sails, and there is now more space at the back of the cockpit. The cockpit is brilliantly designed and is equipped with a flexible folding table, and integrated GPS plotter, drink-stands and railings.
The dedication put into the creation of this yacht is visible in the saloon and the back cabins which are equipped with large hatches that make the yacht bright with daylight and emphasize the sense of space. The round curves and the slightly minimalistic interior design contribute to the feeling of modernity and luxury. The flexible and folding main table in the saloon, as well as the adjustable big bench, make one feel like they are at home instead of on a boat.
Apart from all the luxury mentioned above, this yacht also provides excellent sailing performances, which makes her suitable not only for family and leisure sailing but also for more challenging and radical sailing.
Hopefully, Bavaria will continue with the face-lifting of their Cruiser line so we could expect other intelligent solutions that will satisfy both easygoing sailors and more adventurous charter customers.
I wish you a calm sea, a fine wind and a strong mast!
