This high spec and well maintained example provides a great opportunity to purchase immediately at a discount to the new price.


“What’s particularly interesting about the 450 Sport is that it comes in three flavors. The Open is your basic sport cruiser, to which the HT version adds a hardtop but no bulkhead between the saloon and cockpit. My test boat was a Coupe, which includes an aft bulkhead that isolates the saloon from the aft sunpad and swim platform. Before deciding which version is right for you, know that all come with a giant sunroof, so exposure to the elements need not be a concern.

For me, the Coupe is the ideal choice for those who boat where the weather can be dicey. Its controlled interior environment means you can extend the boating season without any trade-off in comfort. But in exchange your only access to the aft sunning area and swim platform is through a single starboard door. If you boat mostly in Florida or Southern California, you’ll probably find the HT more to your liking; it has the hardtop but without the aft bulkhead, which means you’ll have to give up the luxury of an air-conditioned saloon-helm area. If you just can’t get enough sun, the hardtop-less Open is your boat.

All three versions have the same giant aft sunpad, which lies atop an equally large lazarette/stowage compartment. Inside there’s room to spare for fenders, lines, watersports gear, unruly children—you name it. There’s also enough room for a small RIB or PWC, although an aft lip will make extracting either of them a Herculean task. However, a non-RIB inflatable could live comfortably here, and in any case the swim platform—your choice of fixed or hydraulic—is large enough to accommodate either.

The sole of this lazarette can be removed easily to provide access to the after part of the engine room for major work. For daily checks and minor jobs there’s a starboard deck hatch next to the sunpad. It was a bit of a squeeze getting below, and I’m only 5-foot-10. But once you’re below things open up nicely, especially forward, allowing you to reach anything you need easily. But if you’re large, arthritic, or just plain lazy, that entrance may deter you from those daily pre-trip checks.

The 450’s interior layout also offers choices: either two or three staterooms, each with two large heads. My boat had the two-cabin version, which to my mind makes it a perfect two-couple boat. The cabins are of roughly equal size and comfort, although the after one has two separate berths lying athwartships and a bit less headroom due to the intrusion of the bridge deck. Both are en suite with the aft head being in a single port-side compartment and forward’s being split, with the shower to starboard and toilet and vanity to port.
The three-cabin 450 seems to be aimed at families as it offers two identical two-berth cabins aft served by a head that has been carved out of the galley area separating them from the forepeak stateroom, which is unchanged. European buyers often choose the three-cabin version as it provides a sleeping area for crew.
Europeans also must make do with a less powerful standard propulsion package—twin Volvo Penta 370 stern drives—while U.S. buyers get IPS600s as standard equipment, which on our boat generated a top speed of 31 knots. The ride was solid, even running into 3-footers at WOT. Partial credit for this goes to Bavaria’s hull-reinforcement system, a separate foam-cored FRP grid that is chemically bonded to the hull instead of conventional fore-and-aft stringers.

While the 450 enjoys a fine turn of speed she is no sportboat. Despite a beam of 14 feet 6 inches and relatively high vertical center of gravity, she handled the seas well and benefitted from the sharp helm response common to IPS. Her aft deadrise of 17 degrees at the transom helped the boat produce decent fuel efficiency—it peaked at 3000 rpm where a fuel-consumption rate of 31 gph worked out to just under 0.8 nautical miles per gallon.

That relatively high center of gravity stems from the 450’s unusually generous interior volume. Headroom is consistently 7 feet, and internal dimensions like those of the enclosed showers reflect the fact that Germans, like Americans, are a stout lot. But while the 450’s VCG didn’t reveal itself in any tenderness, her running attitude is sufficiently bow-high that you’ll want to run with about half-tab. Even so, I found forward sightlines somewhat restricted at lower planing speeds, a characteristic that thankfully disappeared as hull speed increased, to the point that at 3000 rpm, lines of sight were perfectly fine.

Up until this point I’ve resisted the temptation to compare the 450 to a German automobile but the Teutonic influence is too strong. My host likened our test boat to a Mercedes C Class but I lean more towards the Mercedes GLS SUV—a big comfortable cruiser with every amenity. Either way, the connection is there. How else to explain why seven of the first eight U.S. owners also own German automobiles?”
