She is the highlight of the BAVARIA WORLD with its more than 4.000 m² exhibition area in hall 17 of the boot Düsseldorf 2017: the new flagship from Giebelstadt, Bavaria, the Bavaria C57.

With the Bavaria C57, BAVARIA YACHTS presents a new, revolutionary sailing yacht at Düsseldorf. The innovative design, the smart layout, the high-quality equipment and build quality, and the impressive performance set new standards - and not only for BAVARIA YACHTS. Something big is starting in Düsseldorf.

At a press conference in Cannes, BAVARIA YACHTS unveiled drawings of the new BAVARIA C57. The new flagship from the second biggest shipyard for yachts produced in series can already be seen as a new milestone in the history of BAVARIA YACHTS. The elegant lines of the hull, the enormous sail plan and the high performance of the BAVARIA C57 originate from COSSUTTI YACHT DESIGN in Italy. Maurizio Cossutti and partner Alessandro Ganz are well-known for their beautiful and fast sailing yachts. COSSUTTI YACHT DESIGN not only designed numerous successful regatta yachts, but also did serial yachts designed by the team led by Maurizio Cossutti win several design awards.

With an upwind sail area of 136 sqm, the BAVARIA C57 promises pure sailing pleasure and excellent sailing characteristics. With its two rudder blades, the BAVARIA C57 can be kept on course with ease and at the touch of a button. Downwind, the power comes from a 232 sqm gennaker, in order to realise the full performance potential of the BAVARIA C57.

The cockpit design is revolutionary. The two control stations offer perfect views of the BAVARIA C57. The sails can be trimmed directly by the helmsman, using the four large winches on the steering column. The steering of the BAVARIA C57 is therefore not only extremely easy, but can also be managed by small crews.

Crew and guests can enjoy a day’s sailing at the cockpit table, which can be lowered if desired, turning the cockpit into a lounge area. Two additional large relaxation areas can be found on the cockpit roof and on the bow.

The design possibilities for the layout of the lower decks of the BAVARIA C57 are endless. The 3-cabin BAVARIA C57 is typically constructed with the owner’s cabin in the forecastle, and two guest cabins in the aft. BAVARIA YACHTS offers two options for equipping the BAVARIA C57 with four cabins. In the starboard between the lounge and the guest cabin, there is room for another cabin with bunk beds. Alternatively, this cabin can be turned into an additional bathroom, or a utility room with space for a washing machine and a tumble dryer. The second option is to have two large cabins in the forecastle. A 5-cabin version can easily be configured from these many variations. Another crew cabin can be added in the bow on request.

With 88 square metres of living space, the BAVARIA C57 offers the largest living area in its class. Entering the lounge via the wide ladder reminds you once again of the size of the BAVARIA C57. A separate lounge area is situated on the starboard side. A large table on the port side is the perfect place for a grand dinner with guests and friends. The pantry is situated on the main bulkhead on the port and starboard sides. A kitchen range with an oven and sink is situated on the port side. The fridge/freezer and large work surfaces are located on starboard.
