'The new Bavaria 30 Cruiser, the answer for the smaller yacht buyer. 31 feet overall, the 30 Cruiser has more displacement than the 32, and boasts more sail area on over two feet more mast height, indicating an even better sailing performance potential. A fuller hull shape also allows for a larger relative interior volume that retains the same ample light and ventilation evident in all previous models.

The 30 Cruiser has that same “yacht” feel as all the other Bavaria Cruiser series models, taking full benefit of the lighter mahogany woodwork that is a signature of the new series Bavarias. Add to all this the no compromise construction benefits obtained with the use of a full interior “grid” system and the 30 Cruiser is definitely a yacht whose cruising potential is as limitless as the imagination of the owner.'
