The Italian yacht design studio claims that this 16m design has been created to set a new standard in the sailing boat market thanks to its innovative design, smart layout, high-quality equipment, build quality and the expected performance.

Cossutti Yacht Design has teamed up with German Bavaria Yachts for the design of Bavaria C57, the new flagship of the shipyard. The new 16.73m sailing boat is scheduled to make her worldwide debt at Boot Düsseldorf 2017.

The Italian yacht design studio claims that this project has been created to set a new standards in the sailing boat sector thanks to itsinnovative design, smart layout, high-quality equipment and build quality alongside the expected performance.

Key features

The new flagship features an upwind sail area of 136sq m and 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 232sq m gennaker, in order to realise the full performance potential of the Bavaria C57.

The cockpit design features two control stations and the sails can be directly trimmed by the helmsman, using 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.

According to Cossutti, 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,” the studio says in a statement.

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.

With 88sq m living space, the Bavaria C57 offers the largest living area in its class, the company claims.

Production of the first Bavaria C57 by Bavaria Yachts has already begun at the German shipyard.
