I thoroughly enjoyed my Bayliner 305. I thought it would be hard to say goodbye until I stepped inside my new Regal 3880 with twin Yanmar diesels. Wow! What a beautiful boat!

Who else had made the transition from cruiser to flybridge?

I'm the third owner in a row of my 2950 Encounter that went to a 38xx.

We sold our Bayliner Ciera 2655 this year and are now in a Trojan F32 flybridge. Both myself and the Admiral love the new boat and wish we got it when we bought the 2655. It is great being up on the flybridge, you can see every corner of the boat easy with no blind spots.

I'm in the club. I occasionally miss the speed of the 3055 but I really dig the room and a fly bridge that holds 10 easily is great.

Here are a few photos of the beauty here.
I was amazed at how solid and smooth the ride is and the power of the Yanmar diesels...
Smooth transition to plane...just an awesome boat.

With the 3880 I get the best of both worlds. It can exceed 30mph. I just choose to cruise at 14

Sweet, beautiful boat you have. Yanmar are excellent engines. Should provide many years of worry free enjoyment.

Nearly five years ago we moved from a 2855 to a 4788. We don't miss the speed difference and enjoy cruising at 8 or 9 knots. Unless it's raining or snowing I'm on the flybridge when we're under way.
