    The Bayliner 45 Pilothouse Yacht provides incredible bang for the buck. The classic Three Stateroom/Two Head layout provides large community spaces to gather as a family and small hideaways for quiet moments. Equally comfortable as an economic displacement cruiser or using “get home” speed on a plane. Her dependable Hino power plants (showing fewer than 700 hrs) have never faltered in the 12 years of our ownership.

    She’s a joy out in open water with large windows and multiple decks to enjoy the views, but she shines in tight situations. Her traditional design provides wide walkways and easy access to lines and cleats with solid handholds and sure footing even in wind or chop. Electronic controls make docking a one-hand operation from the bridge, pilothouse or cockpit. The bow thruster adds further maneuverability to make even rookie Captains look like seasoned pros.

    In good weather, enjoy the wind in your hair and the sun on your face on the flybridge. If things turn ugly, duck in to the Pilothouse where even the worst conditions are handled gracefully. The Auto Pilot holds a steady course as you track obstacles on Radar and AIS both of which overlay onto the touch screen Nav display (all electronics upgraded in the last 5 years)

    Evenings down below come with great views and ventilation from windows stretching the length of the Salon and Galley. Watch the news over the air or a movie on DVD on the drop-down Flat Screen Digital HDTV. There’s ample seating for 6 around the Salon table on a sectional sofa and two casual chairs. The wet bar and wine storage are easily at hand while the chef prepares dinner in the Galley equipped with a new glass top oven/stove and built in microwave. The trash compactor keeps garbage bags to a minimum between ports. All are powered by an ample 50 amp shore service (30 amp adapters included) or Onan 12.5kw generator.

    A great night’s sleep for 6 people is 3 steps down from the galley in a Double State room, a Bunk Room with upper and lower berths and the Master Suite with a spacious V-Berth. There is no morning rush with two heads including two showers and a tub. Fresh water plumbed Quiet Flush Toilets keep everyone sleeping peacefully and eliminate the salt water tang associated with traditional heads.

    There are some things to look out for in these boats;

    Soggy Decks - The flybridge and bow decks were both professionally re-cored in 2010 and every horizontal surface was smoothed and coated with sanded AwlGrip which looks great and provides better traction than the old diamond pattern gel coat.

    Stressed Davits/Winches – The thin gauge aluminum davit base and narrow gauge bolts have been replaced with custom heavy duty stainless components. The cable was replaced with AmSteel cord (no kinking or jumping) wound on a fresh winch.
