North South Yachting announce Bavaria Yachts development of the new Cruiser 45, an addition to the new Cruiser range. This forthcoming model is the third in a new series of yachts designed in conjunction with Farr Yacht Design and BMW DesignworksUSA (a subsidiary of the BMW Group).
Key features on the new Cruiser 45 will include: twin rudder systems; huge fold-down bathing platform with electric lifters; storage space behind aft platform (enough for a deflated dinghy); very large and sociable cockpit; flush hatches; three interior wood colour options; additional sail options including self-tacking jib and Gennaker; keel draught options of 1.80m or 2.10m; huge interior volume with 2.06m headroom in saloon; many new options to choose in addition.
Available in three or four cabin layouts, the four cabin version can be converted to an owner's layout providing multiple use options in the life of the yacht. With the twin rudder system, steering redundancy has been built-in for added safety while the space where the traditional rudder stock would be has been optimised by creating a deep storage cavity in the aft section of the yacht. The natural evolution of Bavaria's pioneering opening transom has led to a full-width transom that opens out to become an enormous bathing deck.
The Cruiser 45 is intended to be launched at the Düsseldorf Boat Show 2010 and will first be available in the four cabin version (the three cabin version will be released at a later date). Both versions can be ordered now for delivery in the 2010 season.
North South Yachting, Australian importer for Bavaria Yachts, has already sold the first new Cruiser 45 into Australia and anticipates showcasing it at the 2010 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show. The new model is offered at an introductory price of $411,159 but this price will increase by 3-4% once production is up and running.
