    Default Small flybridge anyone?

    Well we have well and truly got the stay aboard bug!

    After only owning this boat since last August we have decided to go BIGGER,therefore a shameless plug here reference our 2556 for sale.

    Thanks

    Absolutely Shameless, I'd never do such a thing!!! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    Selling after such a short time, could make it look like there is something wrong with the boat!! How many hours have you done in such a short time. Nice boat though.

    Cheers

    Rob,

    Shameless...you need to be more creative [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Just for the record, she seems a little pricey.....is she really tip top condition?

    If you want rid, drop her a few grand and she will disappear..

    Good luck,

    Well chaps I never said it was my first boat,infact its about my tenth! all others before though were fishing boats but since they marinaised our local harbour and only last week installing shorepower well you can see where I'm coming from!

    Ref Paul............... OVERPRICED? Got to say that I'm 100% confident she is the best 2556 in the UK that is based upon price and condition of her when I bought it and work and money spent in my time of ownership!

    What I'm after ?
    Well my budget stretches to a late 2858/early288 Bayliner and before any comments a friend has one and I like it so there!

    Cheers

    the 2858/288 is a cracking boat, and probably the second best Bayliner currently available (the cost of the 288 means the 285 is a bit better - all IMHO). Most will have petrol V8's, though a few have been re-engined with diesels.

    Forum member ellesar has one brought in from Florida. Nice boat and loads of accomodation, though four of the berths (two doubles) are literally on top of each other making a full complement of 6 a 'friendly' experience.

    Go for one post 1996, as it is a much larger boat and better built and finished. Many available in the US for around 30k, but beware of Hurricane damaged boats in the southern states.
