We're sorry to see this one go but happy to say that she has been sold.
This is a great Bayliner 4588 specimen, probably the best you will find in the northwest maybe anywhere. It is a fabulous live-aboard, as can be attested to by the current owners who lived on the boat for several years at this location. Living on this spacious and elegant 4588 is one of the greatest ways anyone could experience life in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.
Whether you are a student (close to both UW and Seattle Pacific University), a business person, a retiree, or anyone looking for an affordable way to live in Seattle, this could be the greatest way you could imagine. If you are a business person in need of office space, the owner is providing free shared-office space across the street through the end of 2019 as part of the deal.
This 1991 Bayliner 4588 Pilot House Motor Yacht is located in freshwater in the heart of Ballard at a fully transferable live-aboard slip (residents must pass interview/application process) in a secure gated marina with free parking for multiple vehicles.
The accommodations feature hot water and a huge diesel heater that will keep you cozy in the cool Seattle winters. (Rep note - I was on the boat on a very cold day in stocking feet, and I was amazed at the warmth of the carpet and floors because of the heater.)
The boat features a master cabin, a guest cabin, and smaller bunk cabin that could be also used as an office, but is currently configured as a walk-in closet. Imagine what it would be like to take your home to the San Juan Islands whenever you wanted to get away from the city.
The owner is extremely knowledgeable about the boat and its systems. He has updated and improved many things on this boat. As part of the sale, the owner will provide a set of go-pro videos as he takes you through every system and detail on the Bayliner 4588. You will have this video library as a reference, so you will not need to fumble through your notes, bang your head because of your fuzzy memory, or suffer through trial and error as the inevitable issues come up as they do on any boat or living space.
The owner will also help you plan your first trip to the San Juan Islands. He will spend up to an hour planning your maiden voyage through the locks, up to the San Juan Islands, and even beyond to Desolation Sound. He will show you all their favorite spots. Wouldn't that be helpful to you?
Newly updated outside features on this Bayliner 4588 include bow and stern thrusters (spare electric motor), a custom mounted Garmin 3D transducer that is mounted forward to show the upcoming ocean floor, 200 feet of Anchor Chain and 200 feet of anchor line. The anchor wash down pump is a recent addition, as are the windshield wipers and the window screens. The Dynama man lines are new, as are the Makrolon poly-carbonate windows for the fly-bridge and aft-surround, vinyl seats and covers, the Dinghy seat and covers, and the dash plates. The new custom swing and reinforced crane arm is a great improvement, and you will enjoy the paddle board holders on the rails.
Operationally, you will appreciate the new back-up camera, the custom aluminum aircraft radar arch, the 50 amp and 30 amp Smart Plug modifications, the 100 feet of 50 amp cable, and the custom upper deck support brackets that improve the strength of the upper deck. The recently purchased fenders, covers, and snubbers will have you smiling as you come into port.
The bottom paint was applied at the end of 2017, she was just buffed and waxed at the end of 2018, the pilothouse doors were re-coated and re-installed, and the varnish and teak throughout was redone in the summer of 2018. You can just about see yourself in the glassy finish of the varnished rails. Other new deck features include the stainless BBQ Grill and mount, a custom built teak deck box, and the downrigger and mounts.
The inside is just a beautiful and functional as the outside and has many new or newly updated features. They include the LED lighting throughout, an imported European black kitchen sink, a new ice maker, vinyl blinds, a custom cut mattress, a large 30-gallon hot water tank, and a 3M freshwater filtration system.
You will also appreciate the new GFCI outlets, shower pumps, the shower exhaust fan, the bilge pumps, the Garmin depth sounder and chart plotter, the back-up monitor, high water alarms, main water pumps, door and window gaskets, dehumidifier and HEPA filter, a custom under-couch tool storage compartment, a light beige recliner, DVD player and audio system, Webasto diesel heater and fuel system (keeps your feet warm), and a security safe.
It should be pointed out again at this point in the description of this fabulous boat that all of the features listed at this point describe new or newly acquired updates, upgrades, or custom features. Notably, that isn't all. There are additional mechanical and maintenance items that follow. The starting and house battery banks are new. The battery charger and Xenox inverter systems are new.
The rudder boxes on both sides have been re-bedded, the prop shaft stuffing boxes are new, as are the fuel filters, water separators, oil filters, and engine belts. The generator's mounting blocks, impeller, filters, and battery are new.
The 4-stroke Yamaha 25 Hp outboard for the dinghy has new filters, fluids, lube, and electrical, and reportedly runs strong. Corrosion management has been extensive and exhaustive, with new paint on everything! There is a spare prop shaft, prop, impellers, filters, an much more.
Dinghy included: RIB - AB Inflatables 204 with Yamaha 4-Stroke 25hp
The seller showed me how this boat is in near perfect condition and ready to cruise without any work being done or needing to be done.
As seen in the photos this is a very solid and well-maintained home on the water.
60-day Sea Tow membership* comes standard with your boat purchase!
