Bavaria Sailing Yachts

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.

Fun for the advanced sailor.

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 floor.

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.

Exhilarating sailing pleasure in all kinds of wind conditions.
The joy of being alive. Welcome to the CRUISER 51.

Once you are here, you won't want to leave.

Pure luxury, a lot of comfort and even more functionality. The CRUISER 51 offers everything.

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 personalise the look with numerous exclusive wood colours and floors – entirely according to your own personal taste.

The huge lounge seating area.
A separate desk for taking care of business and private matters, etc.

Classy galley for this class.

A galley this size is what you might expect from a kitchen in an apartment. This makes it the no. 1 in this boat class. It has a double stainless steel sink, a 147‐litre cooler with compressor and a 110‐litre refrigerator with compressor. In short, it leaves nothing to be desired for a comfortable journey. That’s a promise.

Clever storage areas means there is ample space.
Already included in our standard: Gas‐Cooker with oven.

Step inside and be prepared to be amazed.

As owner of the BAVARIA CRUISER 51, you deserve a very special luxury – the suite in the bow. Large and stylishly designed, it is full of conveniences. For example – a private bathroom with separate shower on the port side and a huge closet to starboard. And if you like, you can conjure up two cabins from this suite with the innovative flexible bulkhead system.

The walk‐in closet has a seat.
Space for grooming in the bathroom.
