    2452 with outboard

    I've always been fascinated by 2452 outboard conversions, but never considered actually doing it to mine due to the cost. I noticed a rare example of one on craigslist today:
    1994 24 bayliner 2452 fishing and cruising boat.Outbord engine Evinrude 300. Refrigerator, gas stove,new stereo JBL,new speakers,new dashboard, new radar Eclipse GX1300, new remove control,new power...
    1995 Bayliner 2452 Mercruiser 5.7L Alpha 1 Gen 2

    I think that the 2452 would probably work well with an outboard.

    They are a bit aft heavy in my opinion, and if memory serves the older ones had a raised deck (doghouse) which could be eliminated. (My 2452/242 was on the newer hull with no doghouse).

    The outboard would help solve both those issues I think

      All our cruisers would benefit being fitted with outboards. IMO the only reason they weren't was cost. Huge money for outboard engines. Can't really see how the conversion was done on that 2452 (custom swim platform etc.) but looks to have some decent upgrades beside the engine and 300 hp too, she'll scoot!

        That thing must move! The ones I've seen have 150-200 and they perform better than a small block.
