    2556 Hard to Find

    Now I know why it took me 2 years to find my 2556. It seems like they are the least available Bayliner out there. After spending the summer on one, I now know why. They are awesome and no one wants to get rid of an awesome boat!

    -Great weekend boat. My wife and I spent several nights on her watching TV and chill"n comfy style in our warm 'little fort''.
    -Tons of room in the cockpit for fishing and crabbing with the bros.
    -Plenty of space for 8 friends (Ive had up to 11) to comfortably cruise the Monterey Bay for sunsets, whale watching and we even take her out and follow around the great white sharks in the rookery!
    -Gets up on plane (with less people) and cuts right through the swell and chop.
    -Fly bridge is epic for warm summer cruising and perfect for spotting bait fish and crab pot bouys.
    -Easy to trailer with the right truck.


    She has proven to be the perfect boat for us in our local waters

      Not to mention its a great looking boat. Her modern lines are down right sexy! Nice wide beam and a relatively low profile in comparison to other Bayliner cruisers Ive owned.

        There is a very nice one in LaConner right now. $24K. If you can't find it online, PM me and I'll hook you up with the owner.

          There’s a fixer upper right behind mine in Everett, I’ve never seen it move. I’m sure it could be bought. It looks complete and original. I may or may not get rid of mine...

            I agree...... they are hard to find because the owners do not want to sell them!

            I always thought that if I was to ever down-size, the 2556 would be first on my list.

                  I'm sceptical about moving all of that motor weight that far back. These boats already are a tad heavy in the aft. I'm thinking that the twin outboards are weighing in a couple hundred pounds more than the inboard, although when adding the outdrive in it may break even.

                  Does anyone one have any experience with this set up on a 2556? The swim deck must be beefed up right?

                    The OEM platform would never handle anything other than a small kicker.
                    If you look closely at the photos in the add you’ll see some aluminum OB engine brackets mounted to the transom just beneath the swim platform.
                    It also appears that the swim platform is sloping down quite a bit from where it should be.

                      That hull was not designed for a large cantilever hung outboard engine, let alone two!

                          Nor was it designed for 450hp! That sucker might be a wee bit faster than your average Bayliner.

                            Take that baby for a sea trial and let us know.

                            Green, you indicated some interest in that boat a while ago. If you do get a chance to look at it I’d be very interested in your thoughts on how well the conversion was done. Pics and videos if you actually do a sea trial please😁
