    Hi Tom
    I guess the 47s in Canada are a no-go???

      The one in Vancouver definitely, the one in Sidney has an offer before we could look at it. Fell like Karma is saying NO BOAT FOR YOU!!

          Thanks Kirk, we have heard this boat has issues - exterior, engines etc. So we have decided to pass on this one. Really appreciate you sending us the link though!

            My pleasure. They always look great in the pics, but if there's issues that explains why its been on CL for 2 months.

            The boat in the link on post #4 is not the boat for sale by freedom in Sidney. ( bait and switch? ) The boat in the link was sold long ago. The freedom boat in Sidney has been in vanisle's storage yard for some time and looked pretty rough when it was hauled out. Hard to find a good unmolested, well maintained 47 these days that is for sale.

              You are so right! We have been looking for quite awhile and everything we’ve seen is trashed. So frustrating!!!

                Re dyoungs comment - those photos on Craig’s list are definitely NOT Sequel I. I doubt it was a conscious effort to mislead but not double checking the listing is certainly not the sign of a conscious seller.

                  But The CL ad says, "This is a good example of well cared for Bayliner 4788." Are you saying this isn't the case? LMAO.

                    Apparently not from what I've heard from a potential buyer!!

                          Hang in there, eventually the boat will appear for you. We will probably sell our 4788 in another 5 years. It will be in the best condition of any available I am sure. I keep it clean and perfect and up to date. Hopefully it will pay off someday. In the meantime in my opinion the 4788 is the best boat to own and enjoy! When we bought our 4788 in 2012 we looked at 10-12 before we found one that was well cared for and looked like new even though it was 11 years old. Good luck in your search!
