Bavaria C42

The BAVARIA C42 is the logical progression from the BAVARIA C-line, but has its own distinct character. A modern, innovative hull shape with chines and a V-shaped bow developed by BAVARIA YACHTS guarantee both the best sailing performance and an unusually large amount of space below deck.

The clever details that BAVARIA YACHTS is known for, both above and below deck, has been further refined in the BAVARIA C42, providing this unusual 12.38m long sailing yacht with the best of the newest innovations in yacht building.

C42 Wins European Yacht of the Year Award

“And the Winner is …” was the motto for the BAVARIA C42 this Friday, January 22. She won the perhaps most important award in the yachting industry, the EUROPEAN YACHT OF THE YEAR AWARD.

You could almost call the BAVARIA C42 used to success. With the EUROPEAN YACHT OF THE YEAR AWARD, the BAVARIA C42 has already won its second award. It was just in December that the BAVARIA C42 was voted Yacht of the Year in France by VOILE magazine.

In the official statement, the EYOTY jury, consisting of 15 trade journalists from the 15 largest trade magazines in Europe, said:

“Despite strong competitors, the victory of the C42 is convincing in the end. The Bavaria C42 impressed the jury with its high level of comfort and perfect sailing characteristics. It can be sailed fast in all conditions and is easy to control. The C42 also scored with a good price-performance ratio as well as four finishing options and numerous extras.”

After six years, in 2015 it was the BAVARIA CRUISER 46, BAVARIA thus wins this great and important award again. And that is something we can all be proud of. We want to say thank you to our team and all of you for the great work that made this success happen!
