Our fleet :: Bavaria Cruiser 32 - Sax

During high season is sometimes difficult to find a berthing place in small marinas, or narrow bays along Croatian islands. That's why smaller sailing boats are the most demanded boats for charter in Dalmatia Charter’s fleet. If you are sailing with your family, with Bavaria Cruiser 32 you will save extra money on mooring fees. Allow us to introduce our Sax properly.

This sailing boat is situated in ACI marina Trogir, only 6 km away from Split International Airport. A typical design for small sized Bavaria Cruisers is a very modern hull form with a fine entry that carries lots of beam aft. Mast is pushed forward to bow to give more space in saloon. Going down into the interior you'll notice voluminous saloon and lots of freeboard, so it isn’t exactly surprising when you step aboard and find the boat seems quite large for its length. The cockpit is quite spacious for a boat this small and works very well. There’s space for bench seats long enough to sleep on and an absolutely cavernous stowage locker to port. The original, fixed table with folding sides in cockpit was replaced with larger one by our team, and now mealtimes are now much comfortable and pleasant under a large bimini and additional tent. We shouldn't forget to mention a practical fold-down platform dressed in sumptuous teak.
Right upon entering the head below is a small angle kitchen, with lots of lockers hanging up, continuing throughout the saloon. Around the saloon table is a place for 6 people maximum. Cabins, meanwhile, have more floor space than you’d expect, with shelves instead of lockers. Original bed in the forward cabin was quite short, but we extend it up to 2.20m length.
Sax has a great sailing performance, thanks to the mast position, which is, unlike other Bavaria Cruiser boats, moved forward. Headsail is smaller and mainsail bigger, thus achieving better wind angle by upwind sailing and easier and faster tacks. In winds ranging from 5 to 10 knots, this boat can maintain the speed of 4.7 knots.

Here is a list of standard equipment included in price:

Self-tailing winch
Echo sounder/Depth sounder
GPS chart plotter

Introducing our fleet: "Sugar Daddy" - Beneteau Cyclades 43.4

Cyclades 43.4 is from Beneteau line, famous French manufacturer who struck with this line a strong imprint to charter boats concept. The boat is characterized by a well-organized space. Stepping aboard the Sugar Daddy (whether from the broad swim platform or from the opening in the lifelines amidships) one is immediately impressed by the boat’s volume. The cockpit is expansive and easy to move around thanks to the twin wheels and walk-around folding table. The cockpit is also uncluttered with no traveler to deal with and a main sheet mounted on the cabin top. This charter yacht based in our Trogir base, only 30km from Split city center, is a plump mid-size cruiser with a 2.9m length to beam ratio which allows for voluminous accommodations. The real charm of this comfortable sailing yacht for family holiday or holiday with friends is the very spacious cockpit which has a huge bimini. This awning hangs on the wires of the mast and doesn’t prevent communication with the deck during sailing or mooring. Mast wires reach up to side of the ship allowing unhindered, spacious and safe passage from the cockpit to the bow.

Cyclades 43.4 rig has 61? clearance which is a pretty tall rig for excellent sail power. The mainsail is large and combines with a small fractionally rigged headsail on this true sloop. Upwind with large main and small jib, Cyclades races 7 knots and exceeding 8 knots downwind. The cabin trunk quickly slopes up with room for the dinghy. Four stainless steel handrails decorate the cabin trunk along with two Lewmar hatches. The cockpit has long benches and a large companionway sill forward. Helms are comfortable and the benches ergonomic. The ergonomics are perfect, and this cockpit is really what the design is all about. You’ll definitely spend most of your time here and you’ll enjoy its spaciousness.
The interior is roomy and takes full advantage of the beam. Not only that, it has a wide stern which allows for two large cabins aft. Six identical portholes line each trunk cabin side, giving a lot of daylight in the saloon. The floor is a composite wood mixture while the upholstery is white faux leather fabric found also on Jeanneau boats. Its nice modern interior with warm teak veneers takes full advantage of the design. The saloon is dominated by a big U-shaped lounge in white leatherette with a further central bench seat which is on a pantograph mechanism for stowage. In kitchen there's a gimbaled two-burner gas hob with oven next to a big top-opening fridge. The laminated work surfaces feature a substantial fiddle rail that can be used as a grab rail. Storage space abounds and the cupboards are deep. Navigation table is the right place for the skipper and crew's devices to charge up.

Headroom measuring just over 2 meters is great all the way through. Beds are spacious at latoflex slats what is rare for charter yachts. The fourth cabin is smaller than the others. There are 2 single beds in this cabin. It may be small for adults, but enough for children (or it can be used as the skipper’s cabin).
Out of standard equipment included in price we’d like to highlight Wi-Fi Internet, Converter 220V/12V, solar panels, dinghy and a bow thruster.
