Bavaria 45 (2011) 'Trade Secret'
The Bavaria 45 charter yacht has set new standards for charter yachts worldwide. Designed and developed in cooperation with Farr Yacht Design and award winning BMW Group DesignworksUSA, a subsidiary of the BMW Group, the combination has resulted in a new yacht with exceptional sailing performance and luxurious comfort. This combination of performance and comfort makes our Bavaria 45 ideal for your BVI sailing vacation with Horizon Yacht Charters!
Twin rudders and steering positions, a spacious cockpit and a large lowering transom are all new exterior features on the Bavaria 45, while an incredibly light, spacious and well ventilated interior is perfect for cruising the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. A three cabin, three head arrangement is perfect for those seeking more privacy.
This is what Sail magazine had to say about the Bavaria 45: “The interior enjoys lots of ambient lighting, thanks to a plethora of deck hatches. The twin aft cabins, however, are poorly ventilated. The berths aft are generously sized and also have excellent vertical clearance, despite being situated under the cockpit. Each aft cabin has a well-appointed ensuite head.”

Bavaria 45 (2011) 'Trade Secret'Reviews
Chuck and Vicki Otterson and Crew, Lake Havasu City, Az. Bavaria 45 "Nana" May 12-18 2016, British Virgin Islands.
We have had the pleasure of 14 other bareboat charters in the BVI, and none had such a trouble- free and hassle- free boat and staff as your operation at Nanny Cay. No boat problems, no rig problems, no broken fan belts, no valves frozen, and no mesquitos on board!! What a delight! The anamometer even worked and the auto pilot let us hold our heading. Our next charter might be in the Grenadines, and we will be looking for your operation in that area.
You have earned another customer who visits frequently.
Thanks for your attention to details!! It makes the difference!
