Bavaria 30

Bookmark and Share


The Bavaria 30 is an entry-level cruiser with all the features that any sailor would look for in a coastal cruiser. With each of its two cabins equipped with a double bunk, hanging locker, and small open area, the interior is large enough to accommodate two couples or a small family on a weekend (or even longer) cruise. The straight settees in the saloon are over 6 feet long, and its inlaid dining table can drop down to create a double bunk. The space has just over 6 feet of headroom. The galley has a two-burner stove, refrigeration, a stainless-steel sink, and even a bit of counter space. A full forward-facing nav station includes a small chart table, space to mount electronics, and a contoured seat. A fully enclosed head with vanity completes the interior. The J & J Designs hull should offer a responsive and forgiving ride. The fin keel carries over 2,200 pounds of ballast in the bulb for stability, and the deep spade rudder should provide plenty of bite. Add to this more than 550 square feet of sail area, and you may realize that the Bavaria 30 is not your average entry-level boat. $101,500 (sailaway, FOB Annapolis, MD).
