The Bayliner 288 is an excellent family cruiser… a fantastic step up from a cuddy cabin boat or smaller sports cruiser. At 30′ long, with a single diesel engine and bow thruster, it’s easy to manage around the dock and very economical to run and maintain. It’s also big enough to accommodate the whole family for weekends away, or large groups of friends for a day on the water.
For entertaining during the day there’s a large dinette in the lower saloon, a surprisingly spacious flybridge seating area, and a large aft cockpit, which together will accommodate up to 10 guests for lazy days afloat. There’s also sleeping accommodation for 5 in the cabin, plus a large galley, gas cooking facilities, warm air heating and an enclosed toilet and shower.
This particular example of the 288 Flybridge is in simply outstanding condition… we’ve known this boat since 2014 and have sold it previously. It has seen primarily fresh water use and has been impeccably maintained by her previous owners.
It has also benefitted from lots of recent upgrades in the last few years including – Bow Thruster, Flexiteek decking throughout, new Camper Canvas Covers for the flybridge and aft cockpit, new touchscreen Raymarine Axiom 9 RV Chartplotter/Fishfinder for the lower and upper helms, new ICOM VHF Radio, new Refrigerator, Flatscreen TV, etc, etc, etc.
All this is in addition to the comprehensive standard specification including Warm Air Heating, 240v Shore Power, Pump-Out Marine Toilet with holding tank, Gas Oven and Hob, Stereo, etc.
There is also a comprehensive history file with this boat. It has just been fully serviced this month including sterndrive bellows, impeller, anodes, etc. It had a full set of batteries in 2022. The boat is ready to go to the water for the 2023 season…
