Among the widest single-engine cruisers on the market, with a beam that's just two inches shy of 10 feet, the Bayliner 285 delivers lot's of boat and room for the money, which the company has been doing for over fifty years... introducing entry level boaters to a lifetime of recreation with clean, reliable and affordable products that make those first few important seasons possible and successful.
With plenty of room in the main cabin and an aft berth cabin that has surprisingly easy access that would be welcome in many cruisers several feet longer, overnight stays are not like sharing a hotel room in Tokyo.
Air conditioned, of course, with a full head and shower, a galley that includes a microwave, fridge and dual mode two-burner range top, staying aboard is not the usual "camping" experience, especially for just one or two couples or family with young children.
In the cockpit there is plenty of seating, the flip-up bolster captains seat, a fold-away transom bench seat, and a three-way convertible forward or aft facing bench seat back that can also be laid flat to convert the entire port seating area into a sun pad.
The modern, contoured helm with tilt wheel puts a full set of instrumentation and controls well within view and reach, including GPS and radar, and the bolstered helm seating accommodates all sizes and preferred stances of captain.
Under deck the 300hp fuel injected Mercruiser engine and dual-prop Bravo Three drive wrest the best efficiency possible from every drop of fuel, the overall performance sufficient to the requirements with much greater ease of maintenance of the engine and ancillary systems thanks to the large, wide-open engine compartment.
Thus the total package becomes one of affordable utility, the space and features needed in a comparatively modern boat compared to other brands at the same price point, an excellent starter boat for those who cannot afford or risk experimenting with a lesser boat but are not quite ready to take on that 30+ foot twin.
The photos tell the story, the vessel is in excellent original condition, low hours, maintained with a bottomless checkbook by the current owner since new, according to the owner everything works and works well.
