2008 Bavaria 38 Cruiser

More than a foot longer and half a foot wider than its predecessor, the 37 Cruiser, the 38 is engineered to handle the most rugged boating conditions without sacrificing the creature comforts synonymous with the Bavaria name.

For a mid-size Bavaria, the 38 Cruiser offers features hard to find on boats twice its size. An electric swim platform, double-spreader Selden mast and large seat lockers in the cockpit aid in comfort and sailability above deck, while the spacious floorplan, large cabins and functional galley to satisfy all your needs below.

The redesigned 38 Cruiser’s powerful hull design, Kevlar-reinforced bow sections and hand-laid fibreglass hull assures smooth and secure sailing, even on choppy water.

The Cruiser series’ chart table has a large compartment for nautical charts and navigation instruments, with additional stowage beneath the seat.

In addition to easy-clean surfaces, the large head includes a separate shower area with sump pump, hanging locker for wet clothes and a teak grate floor.

A microwave oven, icebox with 12V refrigeration unit and gimballed two burner propane stove with oven come standard in the highly functional galley, easily accessible to the main saloon’s generous seating area.

Natural light pours in below deck through the 38 Cruiser��s 12 opening hatches and ports, two fixed hull ports and two skylights in the main salon.

All cabins feature large double berths and increased storage space in both the enclosed shelving and hanging lockers.

This Bavaria 38 has been used as part of a charter fleet of over 60 boats; she has been professionally maintained with no expense spared.

You will not find another Bavaria 38 Cruiser with this specification and condition at this price anywhere.
