Known for having one of the most spacious bathing platforms in her class, the new Bavaria 45 Cruiser is a flagship for mid-sized yachts. With more beam aft, having twin rudders is necessary, and this is also to ensure predictable steering during higher angles of heel, which a centre line single rudder sailboat can only achieve during a very deep draft. What’s even great is that it has an extremely durable dual Lewmar system that is not likely to give problems. Furthermore, the rudders can be possibly used independently in case of a steering failure of the other side.

The Bavaria 45 cruiser features a cavernous below decks. It’s equipped with three spacious double cabins, three heads and shower and all are en-suite. Furthermore, the master suite room comes with a shower room to port, while head and basin are separate to the starboard.

As you might expect, these impressive onboard amenities are complemented with outstanding sailing performance, ample sized storage on the cockpit and an unswerving water passage maker. The Bavaria 45 Cruiser is also available for charter in Croatia in a slightly different layout which consists of a four double cabin, three head and shower version that comes with interior joinery made of bossed oak, mahogany or walnut. Several different styles of upholstery are also available depending on the Bavaria 45 Cruiser that you will charter.

With an ergonomic design and exceptional performance, the boat is a good value for cruisers who are looking to charter a comfortable and high performing boat for their Croatian holiday.
