NEW YACHT – Bavaria C42 Dolce Vita

The second Bavaria C42 to join our fleet


Following the introduction of Bavaria C42 Freedom, we have ANOTHER Bavaria C42 joining us slightly later on in the season. We expect to welcome Dolce Vita to her new home in the Ionian around June!

Definition of Dolce Vita: the sweet life; the good life; full of pleasure and indulgence

Sailing this brand new yacht really is the sweet life!

Along with our 3rd new yacht for 2021 – Bavaria C45 Calista, Dolce Vita will be a little later to arrive at her new home in Vliho. She will be built early 2021 in Bavaria, Germany and then transported to Izola in Slovenia where our engineers will meet the yacht and conduct the commissioning of doing the electrics, rigging the boat etc. This will be mid May roughly meaning she’ll be ready for her delivery trip down at the end of May and with us here on Lefkada sometime in June. I know that’s vague but we only get a better idea much nearer the time!

Then once paperwork has completed, she’ll have her charter license and will be raring to go!

Dolce Vita has an equally high spec as Freedom, with the same layout too – they are sure to be popular choices for families and friends wanting plenty of space! She has 3 double cabins – the master forward cabin (pictured above) has an ensuite toilet & shower, and the aft doubles share the generously sized main saloon heads. For extra space, the saloon table converts to a double berth. This is a really popular feature being chosen more & more on the new yachts. Even if you don’t need the extra bed, it’s still an option for those hot summer nights when some people don’t want to be confined to a cabin.

The galley is located close to the companionway – convenient for enjoying meals on deck! Up on deck, the spacious cockpit centers around the dining table under the bimini – plenty of shaded provided so eating out is a pleasure even in the heat of the day. Fancy a post lunch swim? Fold down the bathing platform and dive in! This added space is great when at anchor. The teak decks provide an indulgent luxury feel. Sailing has never been easier; Dolce Vita has both an in mast furling main sail and self tacking genoa – effortless sailing even with minimal crew.

Dolce Vita is available to charter from August 2021. Check out the availability & pricing on our website (if a price is displayed, the yacht is available for that start date). She is available for Bareboat Charters, Skippered Charters and can of course join our Informal Flotilla subject to availability. Our Assisted Sailing is perfect for anyone needing a day or so refreshing their skills at the start of the holiday.
