Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

Deep draft lead: 6.58’/2.0m

The most boat for your money? Bavaria C38 yacht test

  • Theo Stocker
  • April 26, 2021

Competition is hot for high-volume cruisers, but have Bavaria built a boat that is fun to sail as well as spacious and affordable? Theo Stocker took her for a spin to find out

Product Overview

Bavaria c38.

  • Fun and engaging to sail
  • Vast amounts of space
  • A lot of boat for your money
  • Limited stowage in 3-cabin version
  • Mainsheet lacked power
  • Some exposed systems in lockers


Price as reviewed:.

A job worth doing is worth doing properly, so the saying goes. There’s no doubt that Bavaria have committed wholeheartedly to the concept behind their new C38 and the result is a boat fully confident in its identity. That’s a good job, given the level of competition the C38 will be up against in the 37-38ft production cruiser market.

This boat aims to do three things: create the absolute maximum amount of space on deck and below from the available waterline length; be enjoyable and engaging to sail, if not a race boat; and give a potential buyer the maximum bang for their buck. In practice, the design has added significant volume in both the bow and the stern, introduced a deeper, rounder forefoot to reduce slamming, and has deepened the single rudder, which, coupled with the bow thruster, should give plenty of control in harbour and underway.

A first look at the boat reveals a few significant details. Firstly, her waterline takes up almost her entire length, with virtually no overhangs at the ends. Then there are the chines. This is only the second Bavaria to have hull chines, and they are used to take the significant beam, which is carried all the way aft, down to the water, creating more volume in the aft cabins, as well as providing power to the hull form. Next, there’s the huge bluff bow and vertical stem, again multiplying the volume in the forward cabin. Pretty it might not be, but there’s a certain purposeful muscularity to it.

Bavaria Yachts, the company, gained new owners in 2018, and they’ve been quick to make a fresh start, starting with a plan to update the entire range. Having moved from design house J&J to Cossutti Design, the C38 is the latest, smallest boat in the new lineup. The strongly chined hull shape makes a bold statement about that new direction. I was keen to see how this added up on the water.


If you looked at this yacht and thought the vast volume would make her a poor sailer, you would be mistaken. I was very pleasantly surprised at how much fun we had sailing her. The feel on the helm was direct, responsive and engaging; this boat is fun to sail. She wasn’t twitchy even when overpressed and gave plenty of warning before the rudder started to lose grip. This boat reminds you of why a single rudder makes sense, and is deep enough that she has plenty of grip even when heeled, which is the main reason wide-sterned boats have twin rudders. The benefits when handling in harbour are huge, given that manoeuvring and mooring is the most stressful part of any cruise for most owners.

Granted, the mainsheet purchase needs a bit of improvement, but if I were buying this boat, I’d go for the more easily handled furling main and self-tacking jib, with the Code Zero for the extra sail area to keep the boat moving off the wind. This would seem to fit with the ethos of simple and fun sailing that this boat ascribes to.


I’d imagine this boat will prove popular with sailing schools and charter companies, but if you’re after maximum boat for your buck for family coastal cruising, this is definitely worth a look too.

The idea of having three king-sized beds on what is really a 36-foot hull is staggering. You’d have to weigh up whether you want an ensuite owner’s head enough to sacrifice some of this bed space in the forward cabin, but given the layout options, there seems little reason to go for the two-cabin rather than three-cabin layout. If you’re not using the third you could still use it for the stowage you’d be missing out on.

Given the price point of this boat, the quality of finish was really very good, and the resurrected Bavaria has upped its game several notches. Arguably, the C38 could now be the boat to beat in this size sector and you’ll struggle to get more new boat for your money than this.

Sailboat Review: Bavaria C38

  • By Mark Pillsbury
  • April 20, 2022

Bavaria C38

For the past several years, practically all of the design surprises that have caught my eye on new sailboats have been abaft the mast. In no particular order, these innovative features include hull chines, twin rudders, pop-up TVs, house-style refrigerators, galleys forward in the saloon, sinks and grills on the stern, sun beds between a ­monohull’s twin wheels, and lounges on the coachroof to either side of the companionway. Some of these make the boat sail ­better, while others make it a more comfortable place to enjoy life on the water.

But this past fall, it was the pointy end—or, should I say, the not-so-pointy end—of the Bavaria C38 that stood out. It made an impression from above, as I looked across the broad foredeck, and down ­below, where the builder’s in-house team and Cossutti Yacht Design somehow found a way to install a king-size berth in the owner’s stateroom, while still leaving room for a hanging locker and a head-and-shower compartment, all forward of the mast.

For a decade or more, even as beam measurement amidships has steadily increased and been carried aft to allow for ever more spacious twin staterooms, most boats still have been built with a bow that’s shaped like an arrow point. The Bavaria V-bow, as the company calls it, has a more radial shape and ­hullsides that flare out above the waterline, creating all that living space in the interior. 

In a briefing with CW ’s Boat of the Year judges, a ­company representative described the 38 as a family coastal ­cruiser. I thought that design brief seemed pretty accurate as we went through the boat, and later took it out for a sail. If kids and their friends are the crew, you could pack a pile of them into the two aft cabins, and the dining table in the saloon drops down to form a third double berth. And they could all share the head and shower compartment to starboard, at the foot of the companionway. Meantime, mom and pop can escape to the big forward stateroom. 

The forward stateroom’s en suite head compartment does cut into a corner of the berth, but couples who plan to only occasionally have grandkids or friends aboard can ­forgo the forward head. They also could turn one of the aft cabins into a workspace or stowage, which is standard.

In all three configurations, the saloon stays unchanged. A settee, with a nav desk forward of it, is to port, opposite the dining table and a U-shaped, cushioned seat. The tabletop folds open to handle a crew of six or more. Abaft the ­settee is an L-shaped galley with a sink, fridge and three-burner gas stove. The boat we visited ­also had a microwave. Stowage seemed adequate for coastal-­hopping, and the counters had fiddles to keep things from sliding off when heeled.

Topsides, the cockpit ­coamings make good backrests on the benches forward of the twin wheels. The seats are a bit too short for sleeping, the judges noted, but stepping out over the coamings isn’t ­difficult when headed forward.

Bavaria C38 saloon

Having owned (and ­sanded and varnished) a boat with exterior wood handrails and trim, I appreciated the C38’s low-maintenance exterior finish. The raised bulwarks and deck are fiberglass, and handrails on the cabin top are stainless steel. The only exterior wood is on the centerline table in the cockpit. That table’s after end doubles as a nifty place to mount a plotter because it’s visible from either helm. Far forward, there’s a chain locker with good access to the windlass and anchor rode. The anchor itself is stowed on a roller that extends forward, and the bow is further ­protected from accidental dings by a stainless-steel plate. Aft, there is equally good access to the emergency steering and ­quadrant for the single rudder.

forward ­compartment

A base-model C38 has a price tag of $248,000, but a model that’s well fitted out, like the one we visited, goes for $350,000, delivered to the United States, East Coast. Among the options ­included on the C38 we sailed were three air-conditioning units, a Fusion sound system, and synthetic teak called Esthec on the cockpit seats and sole, and the swim platform. Hardware and electronics were from Seldén, Lewmar and B&G. Sails were from Elvstrøm.

Bavaria builds 500-plus sailboats a year at its factory in Germany, and the C38 is the smallest in the five-boat Cossutti-designed C line; the flagship is a 57-footer. The company builds two other lines of cruising sailboats—the Cruiser and Vision ranges—for a total of 16 models starting at 32 feet.

Bavaria’s hulls and decks are all hand-laminated, with foam coring between inner and outer layers of fiberglass. Aluminum plates are in the composite sandwich wherever hardwaare is to be ­mounted. Hulls and decks are joined with adhesive and screws.

Underway, the C38 is a relatively simple boat to sail, with in-mast furling for the main and a self-tacking jib, also set on a furler. The boat doesn’t have a traveler, so when beating upwind, tacking requires just a turn of the wheel.

­rounded bow

A double-ended mainsheet is led back to winches ­within reach of either of the twin wheels, and sail control lines are all led across the coachroof to clutches and a pair of winches on either side of the companionway. There are also genoa tracks mounted on deck and sheet winches on either coaming, should an owner opt for an overlapping genoa.

Underway, I found that visibility from either wheel was good, thanks to the low-profile cabin. The stainless-steel stern pulpit makes a good backrest when sitting down to steer.

We had moderate conditions the day we took the boat out for a sail on the Chesapeake Bay, right after the close of the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Maryland, in October. Sailing hard on the wind in 15 or so knots of breeze, we saw a steady 5.5 knots on the GPS. The track for the self-­tending jib’s car lacked stops, so we weren’t able to get the headsail in as far as we might have liked to, but that’s an easy fix. With the sheets eased a bit for a close reach, our speed jumped to 7 knots and change. ­Under power, the 40 hp Yanmar pushed us along at just over 6 knots, at a fuel-sipping 2,300 rpm cruising speed.

The skipper who ­delivered the boat to the show was along for the ride. He said that they’d encountered a variety of conditions on the ride up from St. Augustine, Florida, and the boat took them all in stride—just as a family cruiser should.

Bavaria 38 Review

11th nov 2015 by samantha wilson.

Rightboat logo

The Bavaria 38 is a family cruising yacht engineered to handle a variety of conditions in control and total comfort. The designers have maximised the interior volume to create a roomy and comfortable cockpit that features attractive solid wood trim and veneered surfaces. The two-cabin layout has two large double sleeping cabins, while the three-cabin layout has an additional double berth. The Bavaria 38 is a solid all-round cruiser that makes an excellent second-hand buy.

Who and what was this boat designed for?

The Bavaria Cruiser 38 is designed for families looking for a safe, comfortable and spacious yacht that’s under 40 feet. The structure is conservative, sturdy and built to German Lloyds requirements. The hull is made from solid fiberglass below the waterline with Kevlar reinforcement in the bow area to improve impact resistance. Sight lines are excellent on this boat, and it’s comfortable to sail from either the windward or the leeward side.

What commentators say about this boat?

In both style and substance, the Bavaria 38 appears to be a product of a builder that's looking forward while not leaving behind what matters most in a cruising sailboat.

Light on the helm and rewarding to sail.

Bavaria has built thousands of boats since it began in 1979, and the new Bavaria Cruiser 38 is a chip off the old block.

This boat keeps to traditional details while moving forward with design ideas.

Carefully detailed, sturdy cruiser with remarkable layout.

Continuing to do what it does best, producing well-mannered and equipped cruisers, Bavaria has once again hit the spot with its new 38.

It doesn't take a lot more money to move from a minimal, plain production boat to one that looks and acts like a yacht.

Model variations

The Bavaria Cruiser 38 was launched in 2002 and designed for Bavaria by J&J Design as an update to the earlier Bavaria 37.

The yacht is available with a number of options, including:

  • Two-cabin or three-cabin layouts
  • Standard or deep fin keel
  • In-mast furling or slab reefing mainsails.


  • Length overall: 38ft 6in (11.73m)
  • Beam: 13ft 1in (3.99m)
  • Draft: deep draft - 6ft 5in (1.95m), shoal draft – 5ft 1in (1.55m)
  • Weight: 8.27 tons (7501kg)
  • Sail area 722.15 sq ft (67 sq m)
  • Auxiliary engine: Volvo Penta MD22L 50-horsepower diesel
  • Fuel capacity: 33 gallons (39 US gallons) (150 litres)
  • Water capacity: 79 gallons (95 US gallons) (360 litres)

What’s great about the Bavaria 38?

  • Single-handed sailors can sail the boat with ease.
  • Good sailing performance
  • Exceptional manoeuvrability.
  • Spacious accommodation and ample storage
  • Plentiful hatches for light and ventilation
  • The focus on quality production offers great value to the buyer.

What to look out for on a pre-owned Bavaria 38?

Bluewater Sailboat – Bavaria 38 CC

The Bluewater Sailboat Bavaria 38 CC  Ocean, designed by J&J Designs and constructed during the golden age of German shipbuilding, combines an impressively well-built hull — sandwich above the waterline, Kevlar shield on the bow and up to the first third of the hull, reinforced floors, and lead keel — with a cosy and roomy interior with lovely woodwork. The installation of a sizable, comfortable aft cabin and safe navigation are both made possible by the central cockpit. She is a good-looking, never-rented apartment. The Bavaria 38 Ocean has all the amenities needed for lovely cruises with a smaller crew.

In summary, it’s a solidly constructed, comfortable cruiser with a modest sail plan that might be well suited for undertaking offshore passages but won’t be particularly energetic in light air.

A family-run business called Bavaria Yachts originally produced glass windows. Today, they make sailboats at a brand-new, cutting-edge facility in Giebelstadt, Germany. The company started producing boats in the 1970s and now turns out about 450 boats a year, ranging in size from 29 to 50 feet. Bavaria constructs a number of unique lines. The multi-cabin Holiday series cruise ships, which are destined for Mediterranean charter fleets, are given a lot of attention. Traditional aft cockpit sloops with fewer sleeping areas and a sizable master suite make up the Exclusive series. A center-cockpit on the 38 Ocean is designed for family cruising. In 1995, the first ships from Asia arrived in North America, and today, a charter fleet in the Pacific Northwest is using these vessels.

The business may not have the long history of some of its rivals, but among Europeans she is known for producing reliable, seaworthy boats. Two permanent Lloyd’s inspectors are paid for by Bavaria and are present to check each sailboat as she moves down the assembly process. Boats are therefore not just “made to Lloyd’s criteria,” but rather are given a Germanischer Lloyd A5 certificate, which includes the hull, rig, engine, electrical system, and locking mechanisms.

The J and J design studio, a relatively unknown company established in 1983 by brothers Jernej and Japec Jakopin, creates Bavaria yachts. More than 700 of their first yacht, the Elan 31, were made after she won the 3/4 Ton world championships. Following this, the company established Seaway, a boat engineering business that provides marketing, design, tooling, and prototyping services.

In cooperation with Bruce Farr, Doug Peterson, and the Jeanneau design team, J and J works with more than 20 production yards in Europe and has created boats for Jeanneau, Bavaria, and Dufour. At the 1997 Düsseldorf boat exhibition, three designs were named Boat of the Year.

The attractive lines of the Holiday and Exclusive models resemble numerous Swedish, Wauquiez, Baltic, and Swan yachts.

Because she has a center-cockpit configuration, the Ocean 38 Ocean has a distinctive appearance. Due to its large beam (13′ 2′′), which raises questions about inverse stability and upwind performance, However, she creates a roomy interior and improves early stability.

The sail area/displacement (SA/D) ratio is 17.8 and the displacement/length (D/L) ratio is 217, which are both acceptable values for the majority of coastal cruising situations. For what most people would consider ideal for blue-water cruising, the D/L is a little low.

The spade rudder and tail fin keel of the whale represent modern theories to increase lift and control. There are two different draught options for the boat: 5’1″ and 6’5″.

Logs of wood are transported into the wood shop and milled; workers in the lay-up process are given shopping carts full of numbered fibreglass sheets that have been computer-precut to certain sizes and premixed containers of resin to ensure that the lay-up is consistent.

The drawback of this rigorous strategy is that there is no room for customization. You can have any colour you want as long as it’s black, as Henry Ford once quipped.

The lay-up techniques are fairly simple. Powder-bonded glass mat and isopthalic resins make up the exterior skin. Below the waterline, the hull is made of solid fibreglass that has been alternately layered with layers of 15-ounce and 20-ounce Verotex woven roving to a thickness of 32 mm.

A 2-mm thick Kevlar layer reinforces the forward portion of the hull from the bow to the first bulkhead. Double layers of fibreglass that extend 12 inches on either side of the centerline from the bow to the rudderpost and a double lamination on the keel flange—both required by Lloyd’s—provide additional strength.

Solid fibreglass stringers and beams running amidships that are joined to the hull using S-glass further strengthen the hull. The engine bed is also laminated to the hull, and an engine bracket made of aluminium is glassed to the timbers of the engine bed so that engine bolts can pass through the metal piece and into the engine bed.

Before the deck is applied, all of the internal bulkheads, as well as the cupboards and closets, are bonded to the hull. Marine-grade plywood is used to reinforce areas near hatches.

A corporate video depicts the sailboat ploughing into a seawall at full speed. When the boat is hauled up following the third collision, just paint scrapes on the bottom can be seen.

15-mm Divinycell is used to core the deck and the upper portion of the hull to provide strength, insulation, and a noise barrier.

The way the deck hardware is attached is distinct. Winches and cleats are attached to backing plates made of aluminium that are 3/4″ thick and glued to the deck.

The deck layout of this Bluewater Sailboat is rather straightforward because the sailboat is designed for cruisers who are more likely to hoist a reacher or drifter than a spinnaker. There are actually only four winches. On the coachroof, two Harken 40 winches are located aft of Rutgerson rope clutches to handle halyards, reefing, and furling lines. The main sheet winches are Harken 44 self-tailers. Rutgerson cars are used on the track for the jib cars, which are situated at the base of the deckhouse. The mainsheet is situated near the aft end of the cockpit.

Although the cockpit has enough capacity for six passengers to sit comfortably and is long enough for a 6-footer to stretch out and take a nap, she has been found that the steering pedestal can make her difficult for the crew to work together. The mainsheet, which is situated on the aft coaming of the cockpit, and both jib winches are easily accessible to the helmsman from the standard steering position. The crew will quickly learn that going from windward to leeward will involve manoeuvring forward around the front of the pedestal on tacks or aft of the cockpit, though, because the jib winches are located well aft. The storm dodger on our test boat extended aft from the five-piece windscreen.

On a chilly winter day, this setup shield out of the wind. However, when tacking, it’s challenging to travel across the sailboat in the area between the dodger and the front of the pedestal.

Movement fore and aft is simple because to the 16′′ walkway between the teak toerail and the cabin trunk. Boats are also outfitted with double lifelines, stainless steel stanchions, a bow pulpit, and pulpits on each corner of the stern. Therefore, the inclusion of jacklines allows a team to work in some degree of safety—even at night. The sailboat’s 9/10 fractional rig performs more like a standard masthead rig.

Furlex headsail furlers, hard vangs, topping lifts, and hand-cranked backstay adjusters are all included as standard equipment. A 5.7-ounce Dacron Elvstrom mainsail with a car sliding mechanism and two reef pins makes out the sail inventory. Customers have a free choice between a traditional, fully-battened mainsail and an in-mast furling mainsail. The mainsail’s size and ability to be shaped are both reduced by 75 square feet when the furling mainsail is used.

On the deck, there are numerous sizable spaces for storage. 100 feet of 3/8′′ chain and rope are stored in a chain locker in the bow area that is big enough for an electric winch. The 44-lb. CQR anchor is housed in a stainless steel double roller that cantilevers downward when the anchor is lowered.

This makes the work easier while protecting the gelcoat. Dock lines, fenders, and the windlass motor can all be stored in the second stowage space that is located behind the locker.

Extinguishers are to be stored in the stowage to starboard at the stern, while propane tanks are to be kept in the locker to port. Because European yachts are frequently butane-plumbed, boats sailing to North America must be modified to accommodate propane tanks due to drastically differing sizes and shapes. The storage area has adequate overboard ventilation.

The casual cruiser is definitely the target audience for the stern. She has a freshwater shower and a two-step swim platform with a stainless steel ladder that can be lowered into the water. On the platform, the emergency rudder is mounted outboard. The engineering required to deploy a mechanical wind vane will provide a barrier to long-distance cruisers.

The Bluewater Sailboat Bavaria 38 Ocean’s spacious beam offers roomy, cosy areas for lounging and sleeping. The craftsmanship is comparable to that of boats that cost much more.

The saloon has a pretty standard arrangement, with the kitchen and engine room under the companionway. To port are a 6′ 6″ settee and a folding dining table. To starboard, forward of the nav station, is a sofa of a comparable size. To starboard is the head, which has doors from the saloon or the skipper’s room.

Four deck hatches—three ahead and one in the aft stateroom—along with four opening ports on either side of the deckhouse provide the boat with exceptionally good ventilation. Even on a cloudy, rainy day, the boat performed well-lit.

The master stateroom extends past the stern and contains a 6′ long by 5′ 6″ wide bed in the middle of a space with 6′ of headroom. She is surrounded by exquisitely finished mahogany cupboards and cabinetry as well as thick, 3″ cushions. Because boats appear to get smaller as more people go on board, she was a plus that both staterooms include sitting areas that, despite being modest, offer some privacy.

A plastic curtain divides the head, which has a single stainless sink, hot and cold water, and a medicine cabinet. There is 30′′ of elbow room and 6′ of headroom in the shower area.

The centerline length of the V-berth is 6’4″; she is 6′ broad at the head and tapers to 18″ at the bow. A 43″ tall hanging locker and a three-shelf cabinet with a comparable size are both part of the cabinetry.

The only real flaws saw were the lack of a solid, tight sea berth or two and the small amount of workspace in the galley and navigation station, which are located across from one another amidships close to the companionway.

However, even though one could prefer for them to be bigger, the eating area and head would have to be reduced in size. She is important to keep in mind that while having a large beam, this boat only has a 38′ LOA. The nav station’s work area is only 38 inches broad and 22 inches deep. The galley has an L-shaped countertop, a two-burner stove, and a double stainless steel sink that runs fore and aft. When the stove is covered, there is sufficient workspace on the 24′′ x 66′′ countertop. However, the cook might have to utilize the dining table for prep work because the stove takes up 24″ of countertop space when it’s in use.

The mechanical systems of the boat are carefully designed and implemented.

By removing the companionway steps and a panel in the galley, you may reach the engine compartment. This enables one to work on each of the engine’s four sides. Because she is immediately overhead, the Whitlock cable steering system is simple to check or maintain.

By removing wooden panels in the back of storage compartments, wiring and piping can be accessed. All wire was found to be bundled and wrapped every 6 inches, which lessens the chance of chafing. All hoses and manifolds are accessible and doubly clamped, and through-hulls are made of bronze with stainless steel ball valves. The deck hardware fasteners can be examined by removing mahogany covers affixed to the overhead, even though the headliner is not detachable.


The Bluewater Sailboat Bavaria 38 Ocean is a well-built boat that is finely finished with smooth gelcoat surfaces and high-quality joinerwork. The five-section permanent windshield offers superior protection from the weather and is easy to see through. The center section can be opened for ventilation. Under power, the boat is powered by a 50-hp Volvo Penta with a fixed, 3-blade prop and can reach speeds of 7 knots in 10 knots of wind at 2,500 rpm. At 2,100 rpm the noise level below decks is low enough for normal conversation. The saildrive is efficient but the aluminum housing is vulnerable to corrosion, so owners should monitor her carefully. The boat is responsive to the helm and easily turns a tight 360°. She also tracks well in reverse, even in gusty conditions. The test boat had both furling main and jib, which simplifies sailhandling for cruising couples. The boat sailed comfortably to within 40° of the apparent wind at just less than 6 knots. With a properly balanced sailplan, most cruisers will find the boat manageable and comfortable. 

Quick Notes

The Bavaria 38 Ocean comes well-equipped with brand-name hardware, Par head, Espar forced-air heater, and a Coolmatic 12-volt refrigeration system. The accommodations below are spacious and well-appointed. Standard equipment includes teak cockpit seating and sole, ICOM VHF radio, Autohelm ST 50 instruments, dodger, windlass and anchor with 165′ of chain. Overall, the Bavaria 38 Ocean is a solid choice for sailors looking for a well-built and well-equipped cruiser.

bavaria 38 cruiser sailboat data


published on 26 August 2020

BAVARIA YACHTS will present its new BAVARIA C38 in autumn. After the BAVARIA C42, this is the second newly developed sailing yacht this year. Striking design elements, such as the BAVARIA V-shaped bow and chines at the stern, guarantee safe, fast sailing characteristics and an incredible amount of space below decks.

bavaria 38 cruiser sailboat data

Perfect sailing characteristics, simple handling, maximum usage of the interior below decks and the highest level of comfort...

...what might once have been a contradiction in the field of yacht design, the new BAVARIA C38 proves to be possible without compromises. Just as with the larger BAVARIA C42, the BAVARIA V-shaped bow and distinctive chines at the stern are two crucial design elements of the new BAVARIA C38.

“Chines increase stability while sailing at a heeling angle of between 15 and 20 degrees. When designing the bottom of the hull, the dynamic effect of the chines can also be used to provide faster water drainage from the hull. Modern sailboats often have a very wide stern and therefore a lot of volume in the rear of the hull. When the sailboat gets more wind and the heel increases, the hull gets out of balance. The stern comes further out of the water and the bow is pushed further into the water. As a result the pressure on the rudder increases. A V-Bow with more volume compensates this effect and the boat is easier to steer.” explains Maurizio Cossutti, the yacht designer responsible alongside his team for the hull shape.

Almost 80 square metres of sail area across the mainsail (46m 2 ) and the 109% Genoa (35m 2 ) ensure optimal propulsion by the wind. Simple handling while tacking is guaranteed by the standard self-tacking jib (30m 2 ). Code0 (70m 2 ) and gennaker (130m 2 ) sails complete the BAVARIA C38’s sporty sail plan.

Below decks, the BAVARIA V-shaped bow and the chines at the stern opened up completely new opportunities for the BAVARIA YACHTS development team to use the space. “The V-shaped bow provides us with more space in the bow cabin below decks too. The chines mean we can place the large stern cabins a little further aft. Both these aspects benefit the lounge, allowing seven people to comfortably enjoy their dinner at the salon table,” explains Pascal Kuhn, who is responsible for the new development of sailing and motor yachts at BAVARIA YACHTS.

And there really is plenty of space below decks in the cabins. In the owner’s cabin in the bow, the double bed measures a sensational 1.73 x 2 metres. The berths in the stern cabins measure 1.50 x 2 metres, which must also be close to a record for this size of boat.

For individual configurations of the BAVARIA C38, BAVARIA YACHTS offers layouts with 2 or 3 cabins. Alongside the generous bathroom with a separate shower midships to starboard, an additional bathroom for the owner in the bow cabin can be requested. The large, bright lounge with L-shaped pantry, U-shaped sofa, lounge bench and card table offers real living space for the whole crew. The BAVARIA C38 is ready to sail for 128.900 € excluding VAT.

The BAVARIA C38 completes BAVARIA YACHTS’ C-line, alongside the larger models BAVARIA C42, C45 and C50 as well as the flagship BAVARIA C57. The public will be able to view the BAVARIA C38 for the first time at the boot 2021 trade fair. The world premiere will already have completed its first tests and production for the BAVARIA C38 will be in full swing at the shipyard in Giebelstadt.
