Bavaria 31 - cruising boat with modest performance

Product Overview


Bavaria 31


Price as reviewed:


This J&J design from 1999 was a standard cruising boat with modest performance and generally successful interior design let down by a poor galley and small chart table.

The fit-out was heavy, in deep red mahogany, which made the interior a bit dark but the finish was good. Stowage was less plentiful than in later small Bavarias.

The rig was generous and easily handled but she needed a bit of wind to get her going. A very similar 32ft model was also available.
