Bayliner is part of the Brunswick Boat Group and is the acknowledged leader in recreational boating in the USA. Bayliner has been in business continuously for more than 45 years.
Bayliner's boast is that you get outstanding quality and heaps of space in an easy-to-own, affordable package. The company says that its dedication to the engine and sterndrive package from MerCruiser produces well-balanced boats with minimum bow rise, good handling and fuel efficiency, with a smooth, comfortable ride.
Climbing aboard is easy, thanks to a full-width molded boarding platform and a port-side transom door, complete with a spring-loaded latch. There's a handy grabrail across the transom just above the drop-down transom storage bin door.
There are two routes to the foredeck mooring lines: around the decks, with security in the form of a low bow rail, or through the opening center section of the windshield. There are molded footsteps beside the steering station to make this route easy.
The LX spec level includes a Lewmar windlass that can be operated from the deck or the dashboard, a deep chain locker with deadeye, bow roller, and a spotlight with remote control on the dash.
The cockpit lounge can seat five. There's a single navigator's seat to port behind the windscreen and the helm bench is big enough for two. A removable, centre-pedestal table slots into a socket in the centre of the U-shaped lounge area.
There's a recess under the lounge for a food and drinks cooler. On the port side of the cockpit is a recessed hot/cold handheld shower, a molded sink with a drinking water outlet, three drink holders and a grabrail. Under the sink is a locker that hides the battery switches and a shore power lead.
There's more cockpit storage space under the navigator's seat.
Engine access, via a huge floor hatch in the cockpit, is very good.
The steering station is very American in appearance, with mock walnut dash panels and chrome-rimmed gauges. The wheel and the helm seat are adjustable.
A blank panel below the dash has ample space for display electronics.
The companionway features a bi-fold door with sliding hatch.
The space below decks is amazing. There is ample head room, a dinette, and two double beds. The aft cabin is under the steering station and has a small cockpit window for light and ventilation. If not required for adults it makes a great play area for kids. There are privacy curtains for both sleeping spots. The aft play area doubles as an access room to the under-head plumbing.
The galley is well-equipped, with a Tappan microwave, a Kenyon two burner electric/Alcohol stove, and a Norcold under counter dual voltage refrigerator.
The easily-cleaned head has a manual toilet, a hand-held hot/cold shower with wall bracket, a sink, mirror, and a 120V outlet.
