Extra speed thanks to more sail area.

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 provide 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.
