NEW YACHT – Bavaria C50 Frank

Meet our new Bavaria C50 Frank!


Our biggest addition to the Sail Ionian fleet for 2020 is a brand new Bavaria C50 called Frank! It’s a unique name for a yacht but a boat this luxurious (yup electric toilets and everything!) available for charter is also pretty unique so it’s a good choice 🙂

As with the other 2 new yachts, Whispering Angel & Scugnizzo, Frank will be completed in Germany in early 2020 with commissioning in Slovenia due towards the end of February or early March. With 3 boats to commission, the team of engineers have got a big job ahead of them and some tight deadlines to meet but no doubt they will work alongside the skippers to have these boats ready in good time for the owner’s arrival.

The owner and our own professional skippers will deliver her to us in March and we are looking forwards to her arrival and being able to get on board ourselves to take some photos for the website. In the meantime, I’ll keep you updated with any progress.

Frank offers 3 luxury double cabins and a separate skipper cabin in the bow. The forward cabin is an owner’s version (i.e. super luxury island style bed) and has separate toilet and shower stalls. Port aft cabin has ensuite heads and the starboard aft cabin has its own access to the main saloon heads. The table conversion means you can sleep 2 more in the saloon in a double bed and they have access to the main saloon heads, rather than having to use a heads in another cabin. She has a generator and is air conditioned throughout too and for the luxury of super easy sailing, she features an in mast furling mainsail and self tacking genoa – nice! Like Wyvern and Scugnizzo also in the C series, Frank will have the luxury of the wetbar, sink and fridge in the cockpit for those dreamy nights at anchor dining onboard. The large cockpit, drop down bathing platform and dinghy garage are great extras too.

With the correct qualifications and relevant experience, Frank will be available for bareboat charter but if you’d prefer one of our Professional Skippers on board, then a Skippered Charter is ideal on this boat, particularly as she has a separate skipper’s cabin as well as the main guest area meaning plenty of room for everyone!
