    I believe there were only 10 or less produced in 1989 - unknown how many survived untill today.
    The value of a boat from 1989 will have a lot to do with the condition it is currently in - a survey will get you a decent start in that direction.
    Since this boat (and design) is so rare for a Bayliner you will have a hard time getting any feedback on the boat whether good or bad or value or common issues.

      Since there are no other equivalents for a baseline I have no way to know.

    Like all things.. It's worth whatever someone else is willing to pay for it

    A surveyor will put a value on it. It's one of the things the insurance companies require. Depending on condition they're something like 30-70k. But there are so few of these that it's difficult to put a number on it.. Not very many data samples. So anyone's guess... even the surveyor.

    You could try estimating based on comparable boats from other manufacturers. But there's really nothing quite like the 4285.

    How many hours on the engines? How many hours on the generator? Does it have maintenance records? Any updates? What's the condition of the upholstery? Collision damage? These all factor in.

      It has 2000 hrs on engine.
      Generator been tuned up.
      He just got services in 2019 - generator - drive shaft - bottom paint - engine tune up.
      No damage or accident. Really good condition!

      Also! I see you currently own a 4285! How do you like it? Any problems?
Working...
