|ECONOMICAL FAMILY BOATING - REDUCED!
This is a well-maintained family sports cruiser that offers factory fitted air-conditioning and the benefits of a new 320hp MerCruiser which was only fitted in 2011.
Since being repowered, she has only been used for approximately 100 hours! She’s been hauled out 6-monthly for leg service to ensure that it's kept in top-notch serviced condition. New bellows were fitted last month, in conjunction with a complete engine/leg service, antifoul and hull polish.
For her size – she manages to pack in an amazing amount of living space which is part of the reason that Bayliners are such popular cruisers, particularly in the US. Her 'beam forward' design opens up plenty of space down her length and offers the room of a larger model but maintains the handling characteristics and practicality of a smaller cruiser. In fact, her 21 degree deadrise and hull design both help to enhance her smooth ride.
Exhibiting a large foredeck for sunbathing or even watching the sunset, this area is easily accessed via the center walk-through windscreen. There are even three deckhatches providing good ventilation and lot's of light down below into the cabin.
Accommodation is provided by a comfy and private amidships cabin, forward double berth and the convertible dinette which means that she sleeps a total of 6. Full entertainment facilities, including a flat screen TV, DVD player, Audio system and a fully enclosed cockpit permit all weather boating.
In the cockpit, there is plenty of bench seating to cater for family and guests alike. The seating in this area is very flexible too - for example there's a flipover seat back that allows seating positions facing forward or aft! Even the other seat folds out of the way.
Engine room access to the MerCruiser 350 MAG Mulit-Point Injected V8 is very easy with the access-hatch lifting up on gas support struts. Around the engine there is a huge amount of clear space too for easy inspection and servicing.
Her model's average cruise speed is approximately 21 knots at 3500 rpm giving a range of about 158 nautical miles and her top speed is around 33 knots at 4500 rpm.
This is a an excellent example of the Bayliner 285 and well worth inspecting. Her equipment includes a stainless steel stern rail which provides practical support for the marine BBQ, LPG bottle, outboard and rod holders. The inflatable is mounted on snap davits on the boarding platform to make it easy to secure ready for cruising.
