Bavaria 37 (2018) 'New Beginnings'Gallery
Our Bavaria cruiser 37 available for BVI charter has the cockpit and interior volume of some of the competitions 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.
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 line up, 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!

Find Your Rate
Did you know Horizon’s charters start and finish at noon, which means we can get you out sailing your first afternoon after your briefings and you sail back to our dock to debrief and refuel 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) listed above daily rates. Charters start and finish at noon. Our minimum charter duration requirement is 5 nights.
