In the 1980s Bavaria Yachts produced limited numbers of yachts, aiming at the mid-high quality end of the market. The company however progressively increased production through the 1990s, and with mass production construction methods went for high volume sales.

Designed for Bavaria by J & J Design, the Bavaria 30 Cruiser is a high-volume modern small cruiser in what is now fairly typical Bavaria style.

The Bavaria "Cruiser" series from 2005/6 includes yachts in seven sizes between 30 and 50 feet, the major difference between these and earlier mass production Bavarias being a switch to lighter toned mahogany veneers in the interior joinery.

The 30 Cruiser has a choice of three keels, deep or shallow bulbed fin keels being the most common, though a tandem keel version was also produced (exact draught unknown). The rigs offered a choice of in-mast or standard mainsail reefing. In around 2007/8 the 30 was superceded by the 31 Cruiser.

The main distinguishing feature of the "cruiser" series from Bavaria is the lighter veneers
used in the interior compared to the darker veneers used in most previous models.
Bavaria produces yachts with a very traditional timber look to the interior,
although if you look closely the mass-production methods are visible.
