Friends, Family and Lots of Freedom
Friends, Family and Lots of Freedom


The jury said: “European Yacht of the Year 2015”. We say: that comes as no surprise! That is because you would be hard pressed to find another sailing yacht in its class that offers more space, more comfort, more luxury if you want it, and is also this easy to handle. 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.

Friends. Family. And lots of freedom

Aboard the BAVARIA CRUISER 46 you can just let everything go. She is designed for this – the huge bathing platform is ideal for swimming, sunbathing, chilling out or just enjoying doing nothing. The cockpit area is the centre of life on deck – here you all get together on the large L‐shaped benches. Relax together with the family or cruise over the sea with friends. The CRUISER 46 has the perfect dimensions for short or long trips.

  • R40_1_2 Dancing in the wind.
  • R40_1_3 Navigate with safety, sail with pleasure.
  • R40_1_4 Find some peace – the CRUISER 46 makes it easy.

Innovative interior

The yacht of your dreams with many possibilities and an unbelievable spaciousness. It is up to the individual owner to decide on the design of the saloon on their CRUISER 46. This boat is full of options even while still in the shipyard. A foldable saloon seat offers additional storage space and seating for guests at the saloon table. With its chart table function, the saloon table has space for you to spread out numerous charts, while the map and bookshelf can store a library of harbour guides. If you are not sure how many cabins you might actually need, you have the option to make use of BAVARIA’s unique flexible bulkhead system. In just a few simple steps, wood panels and doors divide the main cabin into two spacious separate cabins. But regardless of whether you have three or four cabins, each cabin on a CRUISER 46 still has tremendously generous storage space in the lockers and under the bunks.
  • R40_2_1 No matter if 3 or 4 cabins, the CRUISER 46 is a bestseller.
  • R40_2_2 Enjoy delicious cooking in the saloon.
  • R40_2_3 A big pantry for a great dinner.
