It’s good to see boat builders finally bringing out new designs after a year of apprehension regarding the new boat market.  German builder Bavaria is joining the introductions with their new Cruiser 45, designed to fill the middle market between their flagship 55 and their little sister, the 32. 

The Bavaria Cruiser 45 is designed and developed in cooperation with Farr Yacht Design and BMW Group DesignworksUSA, a subsidiary of the BMW Group. The 45 features a large cockpit, twin rudders and twin steering stations and a sleek, low profile.  An opening, electric transom becomes a swim platform when down and the self-tacking jib makes the boat easy to sail shorthanded.

The interior will be modeled after the Cruiser 55 which has taken Bavaria from dark traditional interiors into light and contemporary accommodations.  There is a 4 cabin and a 3 cabin owner’s version. 

Base price is $329,000 and I’m looking forward to doing an in-depth review at www.talkofthedock.com
