    I think you mean Bodega. Have three close friends that had one, one still does. Only downers I can think of are hatch leaks and steep ladder off swim step. Lots of wood in fiberglass so have it checked carefully for dry rot. Makes a terrific live aboard, especially with new wider swim step with steps instead of ladder. What power does it have? Diesel power sells for a lot more than big block gas power.

        If you can find a diesel and it is solid, buy it. It is in demand and you cannot beat the space. This boat is amazing!!!:worth

          I think Bodegas are Bodashush. Saw one in the bay yesterday. Tons of room. The only thing I think is a bit funny is they tend to lean forward a bit like they need more weight in the rear.

              We have had our 1977 Bodega for about 5 years now. We love the room and stability of the boat. It has somewhat clasic lines(although I like the 32/38 lines better). The layup of the boat is exceptional compared to other lighter built Bayliners. There are many out there that have covered aft decks and I would recomend this as it adds to the usability of the boat in the NW especially. We have the BBC gas engines but at hull speed we get about 1 KM/G, It will do 18 knots or better on plane but I have never wanted to do it long enough to figure fuel economy. I just put new seating on the flybridge. We had 8 folks up there last week and had room for 12. We have had 8 on the aft deck and 15 in the salon, my first house could not hold as many. I agree with the "bow down" appearance. Even with a 12 foot dingy with a 40 hp motor on the swimstep ours just looks level. Like all older boats condition is everything to value. This boat has more room than anything I have ever seen in the engine compartment. I saw one with a work bench with a lathe and drill press located down there.

              with 400+ gallons of gas capacity you don't fuel up but invest in oil futures! One interesting thing is that it takes a lot to heat it if you boat in the winter. There is more cubic feet than most 50 footers.

              I hope you enjoy your selection!

                I looked pretty hard at a Bodega as a live aboard in my single days. My impression was "this boat is freakin huge" and I was intimidated by the thought of mooring that thing. I think the closest modern comparison I might make is the 4087 due to the aft cabin design, but the main cabin in the Bodega just felt like a living room. Personally, I would not consider the gas engines but to each his own.

                This one looks nice, but for 80k I'd be looking (imho) for a more modern boat.

                and another...

                    I have a friend that owns one and he tries his best to travel at hull speed only. he has twin 454's and when he takes it up to 18 knots he burns 76 g/hr. In Canada at $1.35/ liter. that is $102.60 per hour. He really likes the layout though. check for delamination. Hull is very thick.
