VIDEO: Triple test – Bavaria Sport 330 vs Galeon 325 HTS vs Elan Power 30

We’ve been comparing three of the most popular 33ft sportscruisers on the market from Bavaria, Galeon and Elan

For the October edition of Motor Boat & Yachting, we set out to test some of the most popular 33ft sportscruisers – a segment of the market that is becoming increasingly competitive.

With the latest models from BavariaGaleon and Elan Yachts all squaring up, this triple test was set to be a very close-fought battle.

First up, Jack Haines drives the brand new Bavaria Sport 330 (above), which is the fastest of the bunch (with a top speed of 34.8 knots from its 220hp Volvo Penta D3 sterndrives) and also the cheapest.

Next up, Nick Burnham reports on the Galeon 325 HTS – the largest of the three models by a couple of inches and sporting a very smart interior.

Finally, Jack delivers his verdict on the Elan Power 30, which has the kind of build quality you’d expect from a sailboat manufacturer and the kind of below decks space that you wouldn’t.

To read our full 14-page comparison feature, pick up the October edition of Motor Boat & Yachting (out September 3).
