A Sensible Starter Boat That Won’t Break Your Heart…

The Bayliner 185 is a great starter boat… small enough to launch, recover, tow and store with ease, but big enough to carry 7 people on board. This one’s fitted with a Mercruiser 3.0L 135HP sterndrive that is equally happy to potter around all day at 5 knots for a bit of sight seeing, or pull water toys and skiers at 25 knots. She is in very good condition throughout; has been pretty lightly used and well maintained.

To my mind the most important thing when buying a family starter boat is to make sure that you’re investing in a boat that is in great mechanical condition. You want something that’s reliable and that you can trust to get you and your family home safe and sound every time. Ultimately you want a boat that’s going to put a smile on your face every time the sun shines, rather than break your heart.

This Bayliner 185 fits that bill as far as I’m concerned – check out the full length video to see for yourself.

The boat comes complete with a UK spec road trailer, and we’re very experienced in arranging to deliver boats to Scotland, England, Wales and beyond, so if you’re wondering how you could get this boat home, then drop me an e-mail and I’ll let you know how it works…. it’s probably easier than you think!
