  • Bayliner 4087 Aft Cabin-gctid827109

    Hey all,

    We are about to make an offer on a 1999 Bayliner 4087 Aft Cabin and wanted to learn from our fellow BOC friends if there's anything we should look at out for. It's currently moored in Seattle and we plan to take it north to Anacortes. Please share your thoughts.... deb

    We've had ours for nearly 10 years and love it. It's a lot of boat for the price and a great grandkids boat! Engine room is cramped, port side, port engine for impeller change and other stuff is tough to work on.

    A complete structural and mechanical survey, plus a sea trial, will show up any weak areas, money well spent. They blow around like a leaf, so we added a bow thruster a few years ago. Don't use it often, but nice to have when things are going wrong docking.

    Major things we've replaced over the years, are fridge (got a SeaFreeze), inverter, batteries, water heater. Pump lifters failed, plus various hoses and clamps. We live on it for 3-4 months a year, so it probably gets more use than an average 4087, but it holds up well. It's economical to run. 8-9 knots around 1100-1200 rpm we have averaged 5.2 gph over the years. It will do 20+ WOT and cruise across the Straits comfortably at 15-18knots. It's not a good heavy weather boat, but we knew that when we bought it.

    We are thinking of adding solar panels on the sun deck roof, we do quite a bit on the hook and ours didn't come with a generator, we use a Honda 2000 to top up batteries and heat water. Love the propane stove, 1.5 tanks will last us all summer of daily use.
