The new flagship from the second biggest shipyard for series-produced yachts can already be seen as a new milestone in the history of Bavaria Yachts. The elegant lines of the hull, the enormous sail plan and the high performance of the Bavaria C57 originate from Cossutti Yacht Design in Italy.
Maurizio Cossutti and partner Alessandro Ganz are well-known for their beautiful and fast sailing yachts. Cossutti Yacht Design not only designs numerous successful regatta yachts, but also the series yachts designed by the team led by Maurizio Cossutti, which win several design awards every year.

With an upwind sail area of 136 sqm, the Bavaria C57 promises pure sailing pleasure and excellent sailing characteristics. With its two rudder blades, the Bavaria C57 can be kept on course with ease and at the touch of a button. Downwind, the power comes from a 232 sqm gennaker, in order to realise the full performance potential of the Bavaria C57.

The cockpit design is revolutionary. The two control stations offer perfect views from the Bavaria C57. The sails can be directly trimmed by the helmsman, using the four large winches on the steering column. The steering of the Bavaria C57 is therefore not only extremely easy, but can also be managed by small crews.

Crew and guests can enjoy a day’s sailing at the cockpit table, which can be lowered if desired, turning the cockpit into a lounge area. Two additional large relaxation areas can be found on the cockpit roof and on the bow.




The design possibilities for the layout of the lower decks of the Bavaria C57 are endless. The 3-cabin Bavaria C57 is typically constructed with the owner’s cabin in the forecastle, and two guest cabins in the aft. Bavaria Yachts offers two options for equipping the Bavaria C57 with four cabins. In the starboard between the lounge and the guest cabin, there is room for another cabin with bunk beds. Alternatively, this cabin can be turned into an additional bathroom, or a utility room with space for a washing machine and a tumble dryer. The second option is to have two large cabins in the forecastle. A 5-cabin version can easily be configured from these many variations. Another crew cabin can be added in the bow on request.

The owner’s cabin in the bow leaves nothing to be desired. A kingsize bed, an en-suite bathroom, a separate shower, and plenty of cupboard space are already part of the standard design. The two spacious guest cabins are located in the aft. The wide double beds can be transformed into single beds with just a few manoeuvres.

With 88 square metres of living space, the Bavaria C57 offers the largest living area in its class. Entering the lounge via the wide ladder reminds you once again of the size of the Bavaria C57. A separate lounge area is situated on the starboard side. A large table on the port side is the perfect place for a grand dinner with guests and friends. The pantry is situated on the main bulkhead on the port and starboard sides. A kitchen range with an oven and sink is situated on the port side. The fridge/freezer and large work surfaces are located on starboard.

The production of the first Bavaria C57 by Bavaria Yachts has already begun at Bavaria Yachts. In January, we will celebrate the premiere of the boat in Düsseldorf.
