Bayliner - 1950 Capri: Bayliner Capri is a super family motor boat
Its a fast and fun family runabout! Got it used 4 years ago and have enjoyed it thoroughly! We can load up 7 adults and it still tows the tube with no problem - haven't had any mechanical problems to speak of - a great little speedboat!

Bayliner - 3258 Avanti Command Bridge: 1995 bayliner 3258
We went from a 1993 bayliner 3058 to a 1995 bayliner 3258 and both are nice. But the 3258 is I a different class. Much thicker glass and sturdier. Walk on the decks and the cockpit above the motors and bang on the side. I used a hole saw to drills barbaque holder in the deck and it was an inch of hand layer glass on the 3258. Plus the 17 or 18 degree rear dead rise means pretty smooth ride In ruff water. Plus the 3258 had tons of room, and a fantastic layout . Plus it is the best looking boat for a bridge on the water. Mine had a factory installed genset 16btu heat/air and vacuflush Twin 454 bravo threes. Fast top speed over 40. Those suck, if I had to do it over again I would get a 3588 or a 3458 to get the inboards. Got to have inboards if you want to save tons a money on maintainence and get a real boat. We had ours for 8 years and I was always proud of that boat and loved it to death. But it's a rich mans lifestyle and the depreciation is tough. We paid 60k and sold it for 25k and probably spent average 2500 a year to maintain at least. great boat, we miss it every day

Bayliner - 1950 Capri: Awesome Family Boat
I bought my 2003 Bayliner Capri new. I've had it 10 years and only paid for maintenance and tires. We have had 4 adults and sometimes 8 kids on this boat and still pulled riders on skiis and tubes. It's great on gas and tows like dream. The sides are high enough to keep toddlers in the boat safely and plenty of seating. Perfect family/fishing boat Love It!

Bayliner - Bayliner Explorer (26'1"): Bayliner 2670 Explorer 1981 (Gas vs diesel)
There are 3 in my area, I have the 120 volvo gas and "old jack " has a diesel, the 3rd is for sale (ex fishin charter boat). They are the hard top model with the Alaskan bulkhead and canvas back, great for year round cruisen up hear, now I' ve had mine for 6 years and "old Jack " has had his diesel over 10 + years. The diesel burns less than the gas engine, but both are very economical in fuel, around 1gph @ 7knots, (the boats designed hull speed). Ok diesel smells and is noisey, but not as flamable, the gas engine has more maintenance and no choke for cold starting, but they both push the boat with no phus and yes they wanders a bit at it's slow speed but a body or two in the bow helps, or over sized trim tabs help like "old Jack " has. Well what can I say, I have learned a great deal about family boating, (likes and dislikes), and not spent much $ doing so, a great pocket trawler that is so easy to maintane, can sleep 6 for a weekend and feel safe. O ya had it dewn 17knots in 40 kt wind and 10 ft. sea, wife's ok but wants a bigger boat if I'm goin too do krazy things like that again. ;> Thanx KK
