Due to a change in latitude the owners of this beautiful Motoryacht have made the difficult decision to offer her for sale.  They have enjoyed the last several years cruising the upper Chesapeake Bay and exploring the creeks, rivers and delightful anchorages and marinas in this boating paradise.  Along the way they've made thoughtful and useful additions and modifications to the vessel to make cruising, anchoring and life aboard more pleasant and efficient.  When they purchased this boat they searched up and down the east coast to find the very best boat available, and now it's even better.  Call, text or email to arrange an appointment to see her today.  (Preliminary listing information...more details to come)

Power Boat Guide Says...

The Bayliner 4788 Pilothouse MY is a restyled and lengthened version of the popular 4550/4588 Pilothouse MY Bayliner produced from 1984 to 1993. Aside from the additional two feet of hull length, Bayliner designers reversed the radar arch on the 4788 and softened the flybridge profile for a sleeker and more modern appearance. Inside, the superb pilothouse floorplan of the original 4588 was continued in the newer model with few changes. The L-shaped lounge was moved to starboard in the salon, and the increased hull length of the 4788 can be seen in the enlarged galley and salon dimensions. Two of the three staterooms are fitted with double berths, and the third cabin, which opens to the master stateroom, has a settee with hinged upper and lower berths. Visibility from the raised pilothouse is excellent. The cockpit is sheltered from the sun by a bridge overhang, and the side decks are wide enough for safe and secure foredeck passage. On the downside, the engineroom is a tight fit. Early models with 315hp Hino diesels cruise at an efficient 18 knots, and later models with 370hp Cummins diesels cruise at 20 to 21 knots.
