BAVARIA YACHTS – Discover the Blue.

The BAVARIA CRUISER 51. Fun for the advanced sailor.

The optimum of luxuriousness.

The CRUISER 51 is one of our largest sailing yachts. But you hardly notice this when she is sailing, so unbelievably easy does this boat handle. Designed to accommodate up to ten crew members, the standard version comes with three cabins. However, at the owner’s request this could be changed to five cabins – to meet every need.

The huge lounge seating area.


A separate desk for taking care of business and private matters, etc.

Clever storage areas means there is ample space.

Already included in our standard: Gas‐Cooker with oven.

A great space for great gatherings.

Upon entering the saloon on the BAVARIA CRUISER 51, only one of two words comes to mind – „wow‟ and „gigantic‟! This is an impressive space – impressive in its size, impressive in its ambience. It has, for example, dimmable indirect LED lighting and plenty of natural light. You have the option to personalize the look with numerous exclusive wood colours and floors – entirely according to your own personal taste. 

The walk‐in closet has a seat.

Space for grooming in the bathroom.

Exhilarating sailing pleasure in all kinds of wind conditions.

The joy of being alive. Welcome to the CRUISER 51.

Maximum comfort. Maximum fun.

Perhaps it is because of German engineering. Or being 100% Made in Germany. Or our attention to detail – with high‐quality materials and first‐class design. Or maybe it is all of this that makes the CRUISER 51 one of the most popular privately owned yachts from BAVARIA. She embodies outstanding, uncomplicated sailing characteristics, as well as the ultimate in comfort – her exterior and interior alike are pure luxury. And if that is not enough, the owner can incorporate personal wishes into the design. Satisfaction guaranteed.

No matter the size of your crew – you have the space.

The BAVARIA CRUISER 51 is generously proportioned in all respects. While the helmsman keeps the CRUISER 51 on course with an optimum view of the sailing instruments and sails from both steering columns, the crew can enjoy the cruise from the gigantic cockpit table. And everything you don’t need on deck while you are under way simply disappears into the spacious lockers and stowage space under the cockpit fl oor.
