Bavaria 45 (2011) 'Dream Maker'

Overview

Bavaria Cruiser 45

The  Bavaria Cruiser 45 ‘Dream Maker’ available for yacht charter with Horizon Grenada Base represents a radical development by Bavaria yachts in the mid range sailing yacht market.

The combination of a Farr designed hull and award-winning BMW Designworks interior has resulted in the Bavaria Cruiser 45 enjoying exceptional sailing performance and luxurious comfort. Twin rudders and steering positions, spacious cockpit, large lowering transom are all new exterior features, while an incredibly light, spacious and well ventilated interior is perfect for cruising the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. A 3 cabin, 3 head arrangement is ideal for those seeking more privacy.

You can also read Sail magazine’s review of the yacht here. In their words: “Its sailing performance, at least in moderate to strong wind, is exceptional. The boat represents a great value for cruisers looking for both charter boat comfort and performance-boat speed.
On Deck they had this to say:
The deck and cockpit are well conceived. The twin helm stations are pushed right aft, and instead of a scoop transom there is a huge fold-down platform dressed in sumptuous teak. Steering positions at both wheels are comfortable at all heeling angles, thanks to a pair of clever flip-up foot cleats. All-round visibility is good, and I particularly appreciated the custom Horizon Yacht Charters bimini on the boat I sailed. The after edge of the bimini is perfectly pitched so that if you lean into the wheel just a bit you’re in the shade, but if you lean back a little you can see the mainsail.

Cockpit stowage is excellent. In addition to two large, but shallow cockpit lockers, there is an enormous lazarette with room for a liferaft, a rolled-up inflatable dinghy, sails and more. There’s also a large fixed cockpit table, plenty strong enough to brace against while heeled, that has both interior storage and enough space underneath to stash an ice chest.

and for Accommodations:

The interior enjoys lots of ambient lighting, thanks to a plethora of deck hatches. 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. The interior’s best feature is the enormous master stateroom. This boasts a very wide double berth and oodles of storage capacity.”
