BAVARIA C57 – Something big has arrived

At the boot 2017 in Düsseldorf, BAVARIA YACHTS presented the new flagship of their sailing yachts’ fleet. The BAVARIA C57 does not only convince with a new modern design but also with many new innovative details.

With the slogan „Something big is coming‟ BAVARIA YACHTS announced in autumn the world premiere of their new flagship. It happened at the boot 2017. On the first Saturday, the well‐known shipyard for serial yachts presented the BAVARIA C57 to the public for the first time.

With 88 square metres, the BAVARIA C57 offers the largest living space in this class. Entering the saloon via the broad laddenway, one realizes the size of the BAVARIA C57 all over again. On the starboard side is a large lounge area. On port side, the large saloon table is ready for a big dinner party with guests and friends. The pantry is situated in the front main bulkhead on starboard and port side. The oven with stove and a sink can be found on port side. The fridge with freezing compartment as well as a large worktop are placed on starboard.

The elegant lines of the hull, the gigantic sail area and the high performance of the BAVARIA C57 originate from COSSUTTI YACHT DESIGN in Italy. Maurizio Cossutti and his partner Alessandro Ganz are well‐known for their fast and in its lines beautiful sailing yachts. PULS YACHTS who are owned and managed by chief engineer Leo Curin, are responsible for the innovative design of the interior.

A whole new construction concept is being used for the BAVARIA C57: Hull and deck are being build using the vaccum infusion technology VAKUTEC. The resin is being pulled precisely into the form using vacuum infusion. The result: hulls are up to 20% lighter and at the same time more stable. MODUTEC is the second innovation with which BAVARIA YACHTS prove their market leading position in the serial construction of yachts. The whole interior is being assembled in modules outside of the hull, including all installations. Only once the production is completed are the modules put into the hull. The largest sailing yacht is already known to be a milestone in the history of BAVARIA YACHTS.
