More volume and more performance thanks to chines and V-shaped bow BAVARIA chines and BAVARIA V-shaped bow: These striking hull design characteristics not only give the BAVARIA C42 more space below deck, they also provide unusual good sailing performance. The BAVARIA chines ensure more stability, a longer waterline and therefore better performance and a more direct feeling when steering. But the prominent angle at the stern of the BAVARIA C42 has another advantage. It yields more space for the stern cabins, providing more comfort. The BAVARIA chines ensure more stability, a longer waterline and therefore an overall better performance. Another advantage of the BAVARIA chines: More space & comfort in the stern cabins. The BAVARIA V-shaped bow is another one of the striking hull design characteristics of the BAVARIA C42. Relaxing comfortably on the large foredeck is certainly one of the highlights on board. BAVARIA C42 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. 54 square metres of sail area for the mainsail and 47 square metres for the genoa sail provide the BAVARIA C42 with an extra portion of power from the wind. While sailing with the wind abeam or running before the wind, a Code 0 sail (85 square metres) and a gennaker (140 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 C42. 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 C42’s basic equipment. Many features are standardly included in the BAVARIA C42 series models. These include the self-tacking jib and a sail area of 100.6 m². Experience the impressive BAVARIA C42 dimensions for yourself.

More space for the joy of sailing When designing the deck layout, the BAVARIA YACHTS product management team concentrated their efforts on the essential characteristics in order to make space for an important aspect: the joy of sailing. The bow area and side deck provide an unusually large amount of space for a sailing yacht of this size. The cockpit, with its ergonomically formed L-shaped seating bench, is also a space winner.
