SIBS - Bavaria Cruiser 55 debuts
SIBS — Bavaria Cruiser 55 debuts

North South Yachting (NSY), Australian importer of Bavaria Yachts, will conduct the Australian debut of the Bavaria Cruiser 55 at the 2010 Sydney International Boat Show, opening today.

The Cruiser 55 is the largest of the range, designed by Farr Yacht Design and BMW DesignworksUSA (a subsidiary of the BMW Group).

"As anticipated, the Farr Design influence is clear with a beam carried well aft, a deep, slender keel, tall rig with large mainsail and smaller jib and distinctive twin rudders," said NSY.

"In early test-sails, the Cruiser 55 has proven herself to be perfectly balanced, effortless to handle and superbly quick at every wind level.

"Acceleration feels instantaneous and the yacht responds quickly to gusts, which are easily managed through the responsive rudders. Sailing angle upwind is also impressive with recorded angles of 35? with an 8.5-knot boat speed in approx 14kts of wind.

"This model is a surefooted cruiser that will also appeal to the burgeoning Bavaria race-a-cruiser community through her inbuilt performance ethic," the dealership said.

The Cruiser 55 comes with a choice of three, four or five cabins, a spacious saloon where eight can seat eight around the table while the large galley with central island and full-sized fridge/freezer will cater for all occasions.
"With a light and airy interior and headroom of 2.06m, internal space is plentiful," said NSY. "The forward master stateroom in the owners version is very large and features a king-sized bed, full walk-in closet, large bathroom and separated shower room."

Bavaria Yachts said it continues to invest upwards of €50m in design and manufacturing process, raising the stakes in the production-yacht market by delivering even higher quality at the most competitive price. "The very best marques in luxury lifestyle are German engineered and the Bavaria Cruiser 55 is the epitome of this in every way," said the yachtbuilder.

The Cruiser 55 is on display at the Sydney International Boat Show alongside the Cruiser 45 and Cruiser 32.

The Bavaria Cruiser 55 is available sail-away from $597,176 (inc. GST).
