The Bavaria Cruiser range is specifically designed for serious travel. Unlike other models crafted for specific purposes, such as racing or coastal cruising, the Cruiser Range lives up to its expectations and to provide cruising families with everything one could wish for.
This stunning Bavaria 50 Cruiser is strong but responsive, easy to sail for a novice and / or short handed, yet impressive to put through her paces for someone who wants a fast, nimble yacht. The exterior is eye-catching, the finishing meticulous and special attention paid to reinforcing key-structural points of the hull and deck hardware to prepare the yacht for serious offshore conditions.
The interior is simply stunning. Sober, uncluttered lines with luxurious, modern touches, abundance of light, ventilation and open space while also providing a safe home on the ocean whether cooking or moving about the boat in offshore conditions.
Testimony to its design and build, the Bavaria 50 Cruiser 'Nikau' has sailed over 20,000 miles and does not have a wrinkle to show for it. From the Med to NZ and back again to Fiji, she has been the happy home of the Robbins family of 5 since May 2017. With the original plan to continue on towards Japan, 'Nikau' was extensively updated again in NZ in 2020. Unfortunately, with fast growing children and delays imposed by Covid travel restrictions the plan was abandoned for now and the family decided to give another family like them the chance to begin their life on the water in the best on a yacht that they are infinitely proud to pass on in beautiful condition and with everything at hand to make yourself at home right from the moment you stop aboard.
For more information or to organise an inspection please contact our friendly team at Nautilus Yacht Management. We would be delighted to assist you in every way and to help you make your cruising dream come true. Our agency specialises in cruising yachts and is very involved with the cruising community. We can answer all your questions regarding offshore purchase, import, registration, etc. and help you at every stage of this exciting journey!
A WORD FROM THE OWNERS:
"Like many people we began dreaming of quitting the rat race and sailing away with our family on a world-wide adventure. This dream became reality for us when we purchased Nikau in May 2017 and flew from New Zealand to Sardinia in Italy to begin our adventure with our family of five. We have recorded our journey from the start on our You Tube channel Sailing Nikau so you can follow her adventures there as well. We started with two seasons in the Mediterranean exploring firstly Italy then Greece, we completed many additions and upgrades over that first winter then we were off to explore Turkey, Crete, Malta and Tunisia finishing in Spain before crossing the Atlantic to do three months in the Caribbean. In May 2019 we crossed from Panama to the Pacific having a fantastic season exploring French Polynesia, Cook Islands, Niue and Tonga before returning to New Zealand in October 2019. We completed more upgrades and additions in New Zealand over 2020 including a full new AGM battery bank, new sail drive and complete engine overhaul. We then had to complete New Zealand’s Category 1 safety certificate to leave New Zealand again which included more additions and upgrades including a storm sail, all new flares and more safety gear. Nikau is fully equipped and ready for cruising anywhere in the world! We have loved this last season here in Fiji, with 333 islands it is the perfect place to begin a cruising adventure, there’s so much to see and do right here in Fiji plus it is the perfect jumping off point to many more locations such as Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Australia, New Zealand or Asia. After five years cruising and seeing so much of the world we feel it is time to let another family enjoy her so we can focus on new projects and also allow our teenagers to complete their last high school years in New Zealand.
What do we love about Nikau? So much!! One of the key reasons we chose Nikau was for her quality German design and the five-cabin layout. Having a family with three children moving from a house into a small space such as a boat we felt it was important for each child to have their own cabin, as well as this we wanted to have a spare cabin so friends and family could join us. This strategy has worked so well, Nikau sleeps 12 and we have had many happy holidays with other families aboard without getting in each other’s way or feeling cramped, we also have hosted many dinner parties for other cruisers, Nikau is a go-to boat for get-togethers as both her cockpit and salon are very spacious compared to other monohulls, easily sitting 12 around the dining table for shared meals. We get a lot of compliments about how light and roomy she is below deck, this is due to the generous beam (4.95m) and the abundance of hatches to let in both light and breeze (essential in the tropics). Nikau has a lovely colour scheme of white walls and ceilings with light wood floors, doors and detailing, cream upholstery and slate grey galley benchtop, a timeless combination that always feels bright and modern. The other thing you will notice about Nikau is her generous height proportions, as a German design this is the perfect boat for tall people (we ourselves are quite short but enjoy the extra space anyway), many boats are very limited in height which can be a major frustration for those looking to purchase a liveaboard yacht and not often noticeable in the photos, we always have tall visitors commenting on how they don’t have to duck through the doors like they do on their own boats! We actually have been so impressed with the quality of materials used by Bavaria to make this comfortable cruiser, even though we have owned her for five years she still looks as good as the day we bought her, quality fittings, wood work and an exceptionally practical layout make living on Nikau so enjoyable.
Another major drawcard for us in purchasing Nikau was the fold-down swimming platform at the back, this large platform is so practical for getting on and off the boat, swimming and fishing, it was one of our ‘must have’ items when purchasing a yacht and we are so glad we have a boat with this feature, it makes the cockpit like an outdoor living room leading to your own infinity pool wherever you may be in paradise! Some of our additions to Nikau such as the washing machine, generator, water maker and wind/hydro power generation have really added to the quality of our cruising lifestyle. We can literally live off-grid for months at a time as we can create our own power and water wherever we are with no need to forgo normal modern conveniences such as doing laundry or using the toaster and kettle - things you take for granted in land-based life but are luxuries not included in many cruising yachts! Nikau also has the luxury of three inside bathrooms including two indoor showers and one outdoor shower, this means no one is fighting over using the bathrooms and we can give our guests their own ensuite (no need to give up our own ensuite or share with the kids). This is another great feature not often found in monohulls or even in catamarans many of whom seem to have to use their bathrooms for extra storage, we have no such issues on Nikau with plenty of storage from the large lazarette and under cockpit seats to under beds, behind seats, cupboards and wardrobes in every room, we have so much storage that there are some spaces still empty despite living on here for 5 years!
Aside from all the internal features Nikau is also a pleasure to sail, she cruises comfortably with an average 6-7 knots in most winds and 8-9 knots in more windy conditions (Nikau loves wind and out performs yachts of similar size in any wind over 15 knots)! With a recent rig report, sails and sheets that were new in Greece 2018 and quality Selden parts for the mast, boom, furler and tackle we have confidently sailed Nikau halfway around the world and in all weather conditions including winds up to 50 knots, she handles rough weather beautifully, we just reef in the main and genoa and let the autopilot do the work a lot of the time, all new Raymarine radar, plotter, sonar, Vesper AIS and Iridium Go mean we have the most up to date weather info and can also watch our track and make adjustments using the Ray Remote app on our phone or ipad from down below in stormy conditions or on night watch. Her Bruce Farr design means she has the perfect balance between comfortable cruiser and still being able to achieve efficient sailing speeds and excellent angles upwind.
All in all Nikau is a proven bluewater cruiser, a turn key yacht with masses of upgrades just ready and waiting to take her new owners on some fantastic cruising adventures, while it will be sad for us to say goodbye to such a beautiful boat that has faithfully taken us thousands of miles, we also realise that boats need to be used to stay in top condition and that’s why we would rather pass her on to a new family now, when she is ready for you just to walk on and sail away into your own dream trip!"
Most people coming into Nikau’s salon for the first time say something like “Wow, there’s so much room and it’s so light”. Unlike many monohulls which are cramped and dark down below, Nikau is extra wide and high and has many windows, the central salon has 3 large opening hatches, 5 smaller opening hatches, 4 smaller side opening windows and another 4 smaller windows at eye level to appreciate the views of the bay, and the hatches are cleverly placed to capture both light and breeze. All windows have Ocean Air blinds for shade and privacy and all opening hatches have dual sliding blinds that can either be a solid blind or an insect screen, letting in breeze while keeping out insects is essential on cruising yachts, a small detail missing on many older boats but one we have been thankful for many times!
Nikau has a lovely colour scheme of white grooved board walls and moulded ceilings with light wood floors, doors and detailing, stainless steel grab rails, cream leather-look upholstery (new in Greece 2018) and slate grey galley and bathroom benchtops, a timeless combination that always feels bright and modern.
Wooden dining table that can lower to a bed to sleep extra guests. This generously sized dining table (900mm wide by 1600mm long) is surrounded on all four sides by padded seating and comfortably fits 12 people. There’s plenty of storage behind and under each seat as well as 5 upper cupboards. The house batteries are also located under the forward seats.
Above the forward seats is a Samsung TV with HDMI cable which can be connected to your laptop and hard drive for family movie nights. We also use the TV for our PS4 which can be included as an extra with games if requested before the end of August.

Also in this area is the Raymarine VHF (replaced for new 2018), bookshelf and switchboard with switches for Victron Multiplus inverter/charger, generator start switch, mounted Iridium Go that is hardwired to external antenna and Pioneer sound system with Bluetooth connected to internal speakers.

There is also a large plugin freezer in the bunk room available as an extra. In the circulation area between the kitchen and the pantry is a large storage area in the floor. The stove is gimbled and stainless steel grab rails run the length of the kitchen making cooking easily possible on passage.

Sprayhood and bimini were new in 2018 but the New Zealand winter was hard on them and these (along with the sail bag) were next on our replacement list, still functioning fine just looking a little tired with the odd mould spot that we were unable to clean off.

Accessed from within the salon this small room was originally a separate shower room and can easily be converted back to function in this way if required, however as a family of five living aboard a yacht we found the addition of a washing machine and a separate laundry room where we stow dirty laundry, recycling, spare gas cylinder, emergency water as well as our kiteboarding gear invaluable.
The washing machine was added in Greece in February 2018, it is a unique European small design that happened to fit perfectly through the doorway without having to alter the joinery, it has a barrel that sits sideways to a traditional front loader but it is loaded from the top down, this is perfect for our yacht as the barrel turns across the beam of the boat so cannot become ‘unbalanced’ from the motion of the yacht while underway.
