Overview of Bavaria C42

Created by Bavaria in collaboration with Italian specialists from Cossutti Yacht Design, this cruising sailboat with a Mediterranean cockpit is an extension of the C-Yacht range and will be presented for the first time at the Booth Düsseldorf in January 2020.

Exterior and interior design

The main role in shaping the character of the boat was played by the protrusions in the hull in the waterline area aft (so-called «cheekbones») and the V-shaped bow. This combination of cheekbones had a positive effect on the boat's sailing characteristics, making it both more sensitive and more stable, and allowed for a noticeable increase in interior volume. Aft cheekbones «increase» the length of the waterline to 11.27 meters. The V-shaped nose narrows to the waterline. This shape compensates for the wide stern, reducing the differential at the heel. This allows you to walk safely on the boat, even in case of excitement.

Comfort on board

The cabins are located forward and aft of the boat. Depending on the layout, there may be two or three cabins. The improved hull shape makes the cabins more spacious. In the forward cabin, for example, a two-metre bed can be placed quietly.

The number of bathrooms does not depend on the number of cabins. If the owner wishes, they can be one or two.


On deck C42 there is unusually much room for a sailboat of this size. This was also achieved with a full wooden deck along the sides and at the bow. In the cockpit, ergonomic benches in the shape of Latin L also take up no extra space.

The weight of the keel at 2700 kg and the total weight of the sailboat at 9600 kg is 28%.

In addition to the mainsail and a self-tipping jib with a total area of more than 100 square meters, the C42»wardrobe«will have a Code Zero of 85 square meters and a gennaker of 140 square meters.
