Fun for the Advanced Sailor


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.
  • R40_1_1 Clean and functional deck floor.
  • R40_1_2 Lots of store room under the cockpit seats.
  • R40_1_3 Exhilarating sailing pleasure in all kinds of wind conditions.
  • R40_1_4 The joy of being alive. Welcome to the CRUISER 51.

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

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. 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.
  • R40_2_1 Pure luxury, a lot of comfort and even more functionality.
  • R40_2_2 The huge lounge seating area.
  • R40_2_3 A galley this size is what you might expect from a kitchen in an apartment.
  • R40_2_4 A separate desk for taking care of business and private matters, etc.
  • R40_2_3 Luxury suite in the bow
  • R40_2_4 Space for grooming in the bathroom.
