Easy Handling, Maximum Usage

Perfect sailing characteristics, simple handling, maximum usage of the interior below decks and the highest level of comfort—what might once have been a contradiction in the field of yacht design, the new BAVARIA C38 proves to be possible without compromise. The BAVARIA V-shaped bow and distinctive chines at the stern are two crucial design elements of the new BAVARIA C38.

PERFECT SAILING — Almost 860 square feet of sail area across the mainsail (484 square feet) and the 106% genoa (376 square feet) ensure optimal propulsion by the wind. Simple handling while tacking is guaranteed by the standard self-tacking jib (312 square feet). Code Zero (753 square feet) and gennaker (1,292 square feet) sails complete the BAVARIA 38’s sporty sail plan. So nothing stands in the way of perfect sailing fun.

MORE FOR MORE COMFORT — Thanks to the V-shaped bow, the BAVARIA C38 has more space below deck in the bow cabin. And thanks to the chines, our designers were able to place the large aft cabins a little further aft. Both these aspects benefit the saloon, allowing seven people to comfortably enjoy their dinner at the salon table. In the spacious owner’s cabin in the bow, the double bed measures a sensational 5′ 9″ x 6′ 6″. The berths in the aft cabins also have record-breaking dimensions of 5′ x 6′ 6″ for this size of boat.

For individual configurations of the BAVARIA C38, BAVARIA YACHTS offers layouts with 2 or 3 cabins. Alongside the generous bathroom with a separate shower amidships to starboard, an additional bathroom for the owner in the bow cabin can be requested.
