Bavaria 37 (2017) 'New Beginnings'Gallery
Our Bavaria cruiser 37 available for BVI charter has the cockpit and interior volume of some of the competition 40 footers. The British ‘Sailing Today’ magazine gave the Cruiser 37 a 4/5 for sailing performance. The 37 is quick, responsive, well balanced, and you only think about rolling some sail away above 18 – 20 knots. Impressive.
The Bavaria cruiser 37 ‘Sailing Today’ Features:
With a roller furling mainsail and 106% genoa, this Bavaria cruiser 37 goes from bare poles to full sail in under a minute, she is super fast to tack, and easily sailed short-handed, with a Garmin autopilot to complement the full array of Garmin electronics, including a cockpit chart plotter.
Like the other Farr designs in the Bavaria lineup, she carries her beam well aft ( 12 feet of it) enabling this 37 footer to have the cockpit of a 40 footer and twin helm positions. This provides for excellent visibility when helming on either tack and also gives a clear walkway through to the transom. The Bavaria signature transom lowers to give you the perfect swimming platform at anchor or at the dock. There is also a bimini to keep you shaded from the Caribbean sun whilst underway.
Ideal for your BVI Yacht Charter!
The 37 is not just a scaled version of the 33; she carries her 12ft beam well aft enabling this 37 footer to have twin helm positions. This provides for excellent visibility when helming on either tack and also gives a clear walkway through to the transom. Furthermore, the transom lowers to give you the perfect swimming platform at anchor or at the dock.
With a fully battened mainsail and 106% genoa, this Bavaria cruiser 37 goes from bare poles to full sail in under a minute, she is super fast to tack, and easily sailed short handed, with a Garmin autopilot to complement the full array of Garmin electronics, including an 8 inch Garmin chartplotter which folds up out of the cockpit table. Very cool.
Below decks, there is 6ft 5” of headroom, 2 double cabins, bundles of ventilation, energy efficient led bulbs, to reduce your battery charging and engine running time, an efficient fridge, and a docking station for your ipod, with speakers in the saloon and cockpit. When you have anchored for the day, zip ashore in the 12ft RIB, with 15 hp outboard…….Horizon has the best tenders in the islands!

Eric & Cynthia Sunstrum, February 2019
The staff at Horizon were friendly and accommodating. Every little detail was attended to when requested e.g. bigger coffee pot, extra bedding, etc Nice fluffy towels 🙂 Crisp white sheets!
James Mahoney , BVI 02/26/2022
We had a great time on our charter. Sandra was especially helpful with everything.
We’re already looking forward to another trip with Horizon.
Thanks, Jim & Maria
Jason Nye, BVI, January 2023
This was our first bareboat charter and it was amazing! Horizon staff was very helpful with the booking/reservation process and follow up on the paperwork. We also appreciated receiving the video briefings ahead of time so we were prepared when we finally boarded the yacht. The staff at check out and check in was very helpful and friendly. The yacht was clean, well-equipped and functional.
Overall, a great experience and looking forward to our next charter!
Nathan McElmurry , April 2023 BVI
Captain Dom is the greatest! As is all the staff at Horizon. We had to alter our dates last-minute due to a death in the family and everyone was very sympathetic and accommodating. Even prior to that incident, the whole Horizon family made our trip a breeze (no pun intended) and ensured that we had everything we needed as first-timers. Highly recommend this company.
Jan Osburg, BVI 24 June to 2 July 2023
We’re back home after an amazing week of sailing. The boat was in excellent condition, the admin side was handled efficiently, everyone was super friendly, and the marina was top-notch, too. Thanks again to everyone on the Horizon team who made this such a great experience! Hopefully we’ll be back soon for another charter.

Did you know Horizon’s charters start and finish at noon? This means we can get you out sailing your first afternoon after your briefings – remember to watch your video briefings to speed up your check out! At the end of your trip, you sail back to Nanny Cay to refuel and debrief before your noon departure. This gives you a full 6 nights/7 days chartering around our beautiful islands, unlike some companies that start at 5pm, meaning you will have to sleepaboard* at the docks, and then finish at 10am, again meaning you will probably have to stay overnight on the docks the night before you leave to fly home.
*If available, a sleep aboard can be added the night before your charter start for a small supplement, boarding your yacht after 5pm.
Weekly rates (full 7 days / 6 nights) are listed above as daily rates. Charters start and finish at noon. Our minimum charter duration requirement is 5 nights.
BVI Charter Rates are subject to change without notice.
