The Bavaria range from Germany is a modern production built range of cruisers akin to the Beneteau type and style. Being fairly lightweight and produced in large numbers, the range offers fantastic value for money and has effectively taken on the historic leaders in the field; Beneteau in this sense over the last decade or two. The Cruiser range can be a little “Marmite” in appearance, you either love or hate the styling, particularly externally, but the range is well engineered and accurately built, giving a structurally sound vessel with relatively light displacement. Where Bavaria differs from others is in the construction, with a PVC foam core used in the topsides and in the deck and superstructure, rather than the more commonly used end grain balsa core.
