The Bavaria 30 Cruiser is a well thought out and well designed sailing yacht. everything about this boat is designed to be easy to use and will be ideal for those wanting to sail with a young family or those wishing to downsize once the "crew" have flown the nest. Although she is a 6-berth cruiser, she is more suited to four people with an occasional extra two.
The Cockpit is neat and self contained. Everything is within easy reach of the helm. The binnacle has a leather trimmed wheel, electronic navigation aids and a beautifully made cockpit table with central storage well. Moving around the decks is safe and easy thanks to the moulded non-slip walkways and the stainless steel grab rails and stanchions. In the bow is a large capacity anchor locker with an electric windlass and tilting bow fitting.
This yacht features the more expensive tandem keel option giving a draft of only 1.25 metres. This allows the shallower areas of our coastline to be explored with ease.
The yacht has been based on fresh water since new but has an inventory that will suit coastal cruising. As well as the warps and fenders that you would expect there is cabin heating, a bow thruster, comprehensive electronic navigations aids and a brand NEW rubber dinghy.
Below decks is welcoming and comfortable. The combination of light wood veneers and blue fabrics works well. There is lots of natural light thanks to the numerous port lights and deck hatches. Be it night or day this is a pleasant space to relax with a drink or a good book and while away the hours. For those of you incapable of sitting still or afraid of the silence then there is a CD/radio with speakers and a TV.
Galley to port with gimballed gas oven, top loading fridge unit and circular stainless steel sink with pressurised hot and cold water. There is also a combination microwave oven for reheating or enjoying a ping meal. Opposite is the chart table with forward facing seat and switch panel
Aft is the heads compartment with sea toilet, holding tank, vanity unit and sink. Sink has a removable faucet that doubles as a shower.

Vessel powered by a Volvo Penta D1-20 with sail drive unit. This 18hp power unit has been well maintained and only ever had fresh water through it. Engine housed in a sound proofed compartment beneath the companionway steps. This allows all round access for servicing and daily checks. What is unusual about this yacht is the addition of a bow thruster. This makes manoeuvring in tight spaces a breeze.
12/240V system with bank of two batteries. these are recharged via the engine alternator and the smart battery charger when attached to the shore.
