Bavaria 30 Hardtop

Bavaria 30 Hardtop - roomy and comfortable with more room inside than seems possible!

What they say – Err, nothing actually. Refreshingly, there isn’t a single word of hyperbole in their brochure – Bavaria let their pictures and their competitive prices do the talking.

The 30 sports a good range of engines: petrol and diesel, single and twins, plus Mercruiser’s new Axius system, which provides joystick control for sterndrive boats.

Two separate seating areas in a 30-footer’s cockpit is good going (one of these converts to a sunbed) but the real surprise comes down below. It feels remarkably roomy and comfortable; Bavaria are in the vanguard when it comes to their owner’s mid cabins, which have better stowage and more room inside than seems possible.

Price as reviewed:



Sleek it is not, but the consequence of that necessary height is good headroom under the hardtop, plus an outstanding view out through those deep windows.
