they are great our drives and make sure you do reg maintenance on it, that alone is costly but finding a GOOD volvo guy is hard and parts are pricey!!!! I just had to drop over 2k on one out-drive for a customer in parts alone about that much in labor to.. poor guy

I like Bayliners. I'm not sure of the quote...but it goes like this: "Once you own a Bayliner, you always own a Bayliner"....They had a few hull issues in the 80's...I think they fixed the issues...

Besides, Bayliner is owned by Brunswick (who also owns Sea Ray)...

hmmm...Sea Ray = Bayliner?

No it goes like this....

"There are only two things in life you can't get rid of....Bayliner's and AIDS"

It was aimed more at their entry level crap boats they built in the 80's. They actually have always made a nice entry level cuddy cabin cruiser as well as the boats they make now are a lot better.

Brunswick owns, mercury, mercruiser, baja, fountain, sea ray, trophy? etc. They may even have a hand in checkmate now too.

Either way thats a nice boat, I'd like something like that as a second boat for hanging out and partying on someday.

Honestly...I think Bayliner's are the best bang for the buck. They are a lighter boat and with the gas prices, the single+weight is nice. My 31' is almost 14klbs...I hate the gas prices...=(

your 100% right, the bigger boat is so much more convenient to stretch out on, thats why my second boat will be a big ole wide cruiser.
