1997 Bayliner 3988 Motoryacht in Chester, Connecticut

Stock #119346

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

Oceannie is a lovingly maintained classic 1997 Bayliner 3988. She can often be found moored in Hamburg Cove with her friends or on weekend excursions to Block Island, Montauk, or Greenport.

She will take you and your family on a comfortable excursion for a week or more at a time, or let you and a party of a dozen or more people hang out for a day on the water.

This spacious vessel had her Cummins Diesel starboard motor replaced at the end of last season and the port motor thoroughly inspected by a Cummins specialist.

The owners report everything works and that she feels more stable than their previous 41' Silverton. She easily handles 5-8' seas.

As written in USboatest.com (with updates specific to Oceannie):

The main salon is multi-level with an open concept, U-shaped galley to starboard.

An L-shaped sofa is off to port and further forward a dinette area offers additional seating. The reason for the raised dinette is to accommodate for the second stateroom below it.

Aft and to port you'll find easy access to the main electrical panel. This is actually a very practical place for it as it allows you to operate lights and other onboard systems just inside the salon door. Also in this area, you'll find plenty of cupboard space -- and there's even an icemaker.

The galley itself features limited counter space, but when the lower helm seat just ahead of the galley is folded down, additional matching counter space is created.

There is an ample amount of cupboard space. Other features include a large double sink, a three-burner stove with oven, and a good-sized microwave is mounted overhead.

Another unique feature found overhead is a small opening port that leads to the bridge -- handy for handing a beverage or snack to the skipper while he or she is busy at the helm!

Just ahead of the galley, you'll find the standard lower helm. On this particular model, the helm is actually laid out in a very simplistic manner and retains more of a subtle appearance in the main salon. A compass and a single bank of gauges are mounted on the dash, while a single control panel with switches for the 12- volt systems is mounted below the wheel. Off to starboard, engine controls are mounted within easy reach.

Proceeding down a set of steps and moving forward, you'll find to port a solid entrance door to the mid cabin. Once inside, you'll find enough headroom for a changing area. The berth itself is large enough to sleep two adults very comfortably, with ample storage and locker space in the cabin for their belongings. Just ahead of this cabin, you'll find a convenient day head with the usual features.

The master stateroom is located all the way forward and is comprised of a large centerline island queen berth. Under the bed, you'll find six large drawers for your gear, along with several storage areas throughout the cabin. Overhead, a large opening port allows plenty of natural light to flow in.

The master stateroom is also equipped with an ensuite head that features a bathtub. Fitted under the lower helm, you'll find sitting headroom only. However, the tub is still a unique and somewhat functional feature.

The Bayliner 3988 has ample power with a pair of 5.9L Cummins diesels that produce 270 hp each. This ample power got the 3988 on plane in 6.2 seconds. At 2200 rpm, you can cruise comfortably at 23.2 mph, and at wide open throttle, she can reach a top speed of 29.8 mph.

Visibility from the upper helm is excellent and the full canvas enclosure provides ample protection from the elements. The helm itself is positioned off to port. Wraparound bench seating, with enough room for a good-sized crowd, fills up the remainder of the bridge. Seating at the helm is comprised of a large swivel seat with armrests. Just as with the lower helm, the upper helm is laid out in a simplistic manner with ample room to surface and flush mount electronics.

The 3988 Motor Yacht, in my opinion, is a well-designed and practical boat for its size.
