BAVARIA C46 – European Yacht of the Year 2024!

The BAVARIA YACHTS team is all the more proud that the BAVARIA C46 was able to beat six competitors in the “Family Cruiser” category and was voted European Yacht of the Year after the BAVARIA C42 in 2021. Eleven journalists from the EYOTY jury tested the BAVARIA C46 this autumn in Barcelona. The BAVARIA C46 can still be viewed at boot 2024 in Dusseldorf until Sunday 28th January.

Jochen Rieker from the yacht reported: “The boat builders from Giebelstadt in Franconia already proved three years ago that something has changed. Back then, after a long break, the C42 designed by Maurizio Cossutti won the title of European Yacht of the Year with overwhelming clarity. Now the C46 is following suit, and despite the many well-known competitors, it is once again a clear winner. Although it follows the same basic concept, in many respects it sets the bar even higher than its sister, which won in 2021.”

Toby Hodges from “Yachting World” explains the triumph of the C46 with its substance: “BAVARIA has increased its quality to such an extent that other large shipyards find it difficult to keep up.”

And finally, Joakim Hermansson from “Praktiskt Båtägande” in Sweden praised: “Sailing her is simply fun!”

We are proud of this award and the consistently positive feedback from the press and visitors to the C46 at boot!
