With more than 150 Bavaria yachts, power boats and Nautitech catamarans sold new into New Zealand, Bavaria Yachts is well-regarded in New Zealand with a range of models ideally suited to local conditions.
As the New Zealand distributor for Bavaria Yachts, Motorboats and Nautitech cruising catamarans, Busfield Marine Ltd is pleased to present the new Bavaria C45 cruising yacht and the new Bavaria Virtess 42 Fly planing launch at this year’s Boat show.
Busfield Marine’s Colin Rees says both models demonstrate a steep change in Bavaria yacht design with a sharper focus on sailing performance and hull design.
He says the new C45 with a class-leading beam of 4.49m creates immense interior volume which Italian designer Mario Cossutti has used to great effect to create a truly luxurious interior that has been described by European press as a mini superyacht.
“Importantly, this has not come at the expense of performance. The gains on all points of sail over previous generation models is impressive and the design polars lift cruising yacht performance to a whole new level.”
Rees says the new C series cruiser is also amongst the best-looking modern production yacht with its low-profile coach roof, recessed deck hatches, fold-up transom with tender storage and new cockpit design providing options for single or twin cockpit tables and built in BBQ and wet bar.
Lying beside the C45 will be the new Virtess 42 Fly, a showcase of European design flair and performance. Powered by the new generation Volvo DPSI 380HP diesel engines, the Fly delivers excellent performance and efficiency while meeting the latest European emission standards.
Rees says the Virtess – offered in both open flybridge and coupe’ styles – is unashamedly stylish without compromising on function.
“This is a motor yacht well suited to the kiwi boating lifestyle. It has great livability with three cabins, a very generous island-style master with ensuite, practical galley, light-filled saloon and seamless flow throughout the boat.
“The Virtess goes a long way to meeting the conflicting demands of kiwi powerboating. It’s luxurious and stylish but not at the expense of practicality or sea-going ability. There’s ample space aft to wet a line and carry the water toys and tender. The new Fly is all about entertaining family and friends with generous proportions and ample seating options.”
