About this Bavaria 33 Cruiser


The Bavaria 33 Cruiser is a deceptively larger 33' cruiser. A development of the successful Bavaria 32 the model had a relatively short production run. With a greater displacement and considerably larger sail area than her predecessor the design sails well with improved handling in heavier seas.

A well presented and lightly used example of the class DROOKIT is offered for sale with a complete inventory which includes:

Volvo Penta D1-20 engine

Shore power system

Holding tank

Webasto thermostatically controlled cabin heating

Raymarine chart plotter, instruments and VHF

Honda outboard engine

Currently lying ashore DROOKIT is available for viewing by prior arrangement, in line with the latest government guidelines.


'As a replacement for the extremely popular Bavaria 32, the 33 Cruiser, while being a departure in many areas, still retains that real “yacht” feel that was a major component of the success of the 32. At 34’3” overall, the 33 Cruiser boasts almost 150 sq. ft. more sail area. Set on over four feet more mast height, the enhanced performance potential sets it even further apart from the competition. A fuller hull shape allows for increased interior volume, while two fixed hull ports and two skylights aft of the mast accentuate the lighter mahogany interior wood finish.'
