The 18' Element XL by Bayliner is extremely easy to handle for first time boat owners. Onboard capacity and three seating sections make the interior feel much larger in size with flexibility to change the aft and forward seating cushions into sun pads. For water sports, access onto the boat is simple with stern boarding platform and folding boarding ladder. Storage capacity is ample with open areas underneath all the seating included the helm seat. Bayliner has an Extended Warranty for 5 years which is transferred to the new owners (4 years remaining).
