Awarded 2024 Best Family Cruiser

With the new BAVARIA C46, BAVARIA YACHTS announce an impressive addition to their C‐LINE sailing yachts for 2023. The BAVARIA C46 sets new standards in the combination of ample room, excellent sailing characteristics and innovative solutions, as the C‐LINE concept has been further developed and re‐interpreted in all areas. The characteristic features of the hull design with the typical BAVARIA V‐bow and chines give the BAVARIA C46 impressive sailing characteristics, while also creating more light space and living comfort below deck in the salon as well as the cabins.

On a BAVARIA C46, no wish remains unfulfilled. Many options and clever packages give each BAVARIA C46 its own character for every requirement.

Salon, restaurant and boat office — The salon is the central place on board and the meeting point for the whole crew. A unique lighting concept with large hull windows, hatches and skylights brings a maximum of daylight into the salon and cabins. The galley on portside is ideal for any dinner with plenty of storage and large work surfaces.

Every detail is well thought-out — The BAVARIA C46 features many clever details for a maximum of sailing pleasure and comfort on board. The BAVARIA V‐bow and the distinctive chines at the stern not only guarantee perfect sailing characteristics for the BAVARIA C46, they also open up incredible possibilities for the design on and below deck.
