Bavaria 30


Introducing the brand at the Southampton Show in 1987, this Axel design was a staid-looking, mid-range cruiser. The build quality and fi nish of the mahogany joinery were impressive. The accommodation layout was conventional with a comfortable and spacious saloon, a large heads and generous aftercabin. The forecabin was somewhat cramped and the chart table faced aft over the starboard settee. Only a limited number were imported into the UK.
