Bavaria premieres R40 Coupe & C57 in Düsseldorf
Published: Tuesday, 24 January 2017
Following the successful introduction of the Bavaria R40 Fly last year, the Bavaria R40 Coupe celebrated her world premiere at the boot Düsseldorf (Jan 21-29) in Germany. The Management team of Bavaria Yachts also announced the presentation of its largest motor yacht Bavaria R55 this autumn.
With up to 720hp, the new Bavaria R40 Coupe is the next step of motor yachts generation for the shipyard after R40 Fly. The large electrical plastic sunroof can convert the saloon into a sunny area. The coupe roof over the open cockpit can also be opened with a second sunroof. Below deck, the Bavaria R40 Coupe and the Fly are installed with a saloon and two cabins.
Other highlights include two spacious bedrooms, designer bathrooms and the use of exquisite wood on board the new German yacht.
The German shipyard also showed the first drawings of the R-line in a video. Further technical details and the first official drawings can be seen at the fair at Miami International Boat Show (Feb 16-20) in the US.
The R-line aside, Bavaria Yachts also introduced the new flagship of its sailing yachts’ fleet – Bavaria C57, which comes with many new innovative details.
The elegant lines of the hull, the gigantic sail area and the high performance of the Bavaria C57 originate from Cossutti Yacht Design led by Maurizio Cossutti and his partner Alessandro Ganz in Italy. Puls Yachts, owned and managed by Chief Engineer Leo Curin, is responsible for the innovative design of the interior.
With 88 square metres, the Bavaria C57 offers the largest living space in this class. The saloon can be accessed from the broad ladderway. On the starboard side is a large lounge area. On the port side, the large saloon table is ready for a big dinner party, while the pantry is situated in the front main bulkhead on starboard and port side. The oven with stove and a sink can be found on the port side. The fridge with freezing compartment as well as a large worktop is placed on starboard.
A whole new construction concept is being used for the Bavaria C57: Hull and deck were built with vacuum infusion technology Vakutec. The resin is pulled into the form using vacuum infusion. The hulls are up to 20% lighter and more stable. Modutec is the second innovation with which Bavaria Yachts proves its market leading position in the serial construction of yachts. The whole interior is assembled in modules outside of the hull, including all installations.
Meanwhile, Sailing Plus S.A.R.L. has taken over the important sales areas Lebanon and United Arab Emirates as a new dealer for Bavaria Yachts. The sales office in Beirut can be found in the well-known La Marina Dbayeh.
In Abu Dhabi, the catamarans, sailing and motor yachts of the largest German shipyard for serial yachts can be viewed in the luxurious Ghantoot Marina. Owned by H.E Mohammad Al Qamzi, Sailing Plus S.A.R.L. is managed by CEO Cesar Abi Akl. The company joined the shipyard at the German show this year.
