There’s an awful lot for a modern cruising sailor to like in this boat
(PRWEB) December 08, 2011
Bavaria Yachts USA announced that the Bavaria Cruiser 45 has been chosen as SAIL Magazine’s Best Boat 2012 Winner among cruising monohulls under 50ft. SAIL magazine’s annual Best Boat Award recognizes the best new sailboat introduced into the North American market.
In the past six months, Bavaria Yachts has re-entered the US market with its well-respected, global sailboat brand. Bavaria Yachts USA opened its doors in Annapolis in June 2011, and premiered its newly designed Cruiser Series at the US Boat Show in October 2011. In a very short time, the Cruiser Series has met with success, accolades, and incredible enthusiasm in the US market. Bavaria’s premium quality boats, competitive pricing, and innovative direct business model, has brought new energy to the recovery of the US sailing market. Bavaria Yachts USA plans to open additional direct locations in Rhode Island, Great Lakes, Northern California, Southern California, and Seattle, within the next two years.
Built in collaboration between Bavaria Yachts, Farr Yacht Design and BMW DesignworksUSA, the award-winning Cruiser 45 is a beautifully engineered yacht with elegant lines and a host of innovative features. Built to the exacting Germanischer Lloyd Certification, the new Bavaria 45 sets new standards in quality and design, while providing outstanding comfort and performance.
SAIL’s Charlie Doane comments that “There’s an awful lot for a modern cruising sailor to like in this boat”. The spacious interior and styling are striking, and the quality of the build and finish are also highlighted in his video piece on sailmagazine.com. “Most of all,” adds SAIL’s Doane, “we like the way this boat sails.”
The Bavaria Cruiser 45 is available for test sail or charter in the Caribbean or Annapolis, Maryland through Horizon Yacht Charters.
