Bavaria Cruiser 46, awarded 2015 European boat of the year

The Cruiser 46 is the 2015 European Yacht of the Year, and is easy to know why as you would be hard pressed to find another sailing yacht in its class that offers more space, more comfort, more luxury, and is also this easy to handle.

The new Cruiser 46 Style improves both the on board amenities and increasing the sense of comfort. The big L-shape galley on the port side of the saloon in particular has been improved, with the addition of a tower unit that includes a further fridge/freezer drawer, plus dishwasher and wine storage. The galley had a huge amount of worktop space and storage.

The dining/lounging area is on the starboard side of the saloon, arranged around a substantial table that can be lowered at the touch of a button to create a giant day bed.

One special feature: if you would like to make 4 cabins out of the 3-cabin version, the huge forward cabin can be transformed into two smaller cabins in just a few steps. Clever and innovative – like everything from BAVARIA
