The Bavaria 33 Cruiser was introduced in 2005/6 as an update to the long-running Bavaria 32, which was actually almost 34' LOA. Both this and the earlier 32 were designed for Bavaria by J & J Designs. The main difference between this and the earlier 32 were a bit more beam, heavier displacement and a much lighter interior finish, all the previous Bavaria were quite dark inside with deep mahogany finished joinery. The 33 Cruiser was sold with options of standard or deep keels: the deep keel option being 6' 5".

The Bavaria 33 Cruiser remained in production until 2008, although the similar but larger 35, 38, 40 and 43 foot models remained in production longer.

In 2013 Bavaria again introduced a 33-footer - the similarly named ( Bavaria Cruiser 33 ) but this was a very different Farr-designed model. These have much "squarer" lines, both externally and in the interior joinery - which may well be this way particularly in the interior as it is cheaper to build.
