    1998 Bayliner Avanti 3685 - twin 380hp gas engines - all ready to go - really, good condition - $60K

    Typo in the title - the engines are 380hp, not 480s. . . sorry

    Our boat, "Dad's Dream" is finally ready to go cruising. Note all the items below. However, as fate would have it, we are moving to Florida and won't be able to take her with us . . . fate just hasn't been on our side for a while now. But, life goes on and our bad news could, and will be, some one else's good news. Everything is done: new paint, electronics w/AIS, new canvas, new flo-scans . . . she's ready to go!! Located at Dredge Harbor Boat Center in Delran, NJ - see Mike Tortu. I'll head out later this week and take pictures but thought I'd put this out here for now. . . . way too busy packing and throwing and giving and selling . . . well, you know the routine.

    New stuff or completed items on the boat:


    1 – New canvas, front and back (Sunbrella Aruba) with new zippers in the Isenglass (tear drop shapped)

    2 – New Garmin 1042xsv with transducer and Vision HD mapping card included & flush mounted

    3 – New class B AIS – Vesper XB8000 unit with GPS antenna mounted and utilizing Vesper AIS VHF splitter –

    AIS/Vesper unit controllable by Smart phone WatchMate app

    4 – New bottom paint applied May 2018

    5 – New NEMA2000K network installed (only Garmin unit and Vesper are connected right now)

    6 – New Bennett Trim Tab controller EIC5000 installed (lighted position LEDs)

    7 – New waste tank filter installed 9/18/18

    8 – New chrome VHF antenna mount

    9 – New Flo-scan dash units (2) – measure fuel and digital tach units – one per engine, dash mounted

    10 – Port engine overhauled completely (ps: both engines have 4 bolt mains)

    11 – Strbd engine tuned, compression checked, new starter installed - 2017

    12 – Vac-u-pump flush system overhauled – 2017

    13 – Anodes replaced – 2017

    14 – Port rudder shaft re-aligned and new rudder pivot casting installed – SEP 2017

      I think he meant to say 380 HP. I think he has Mercruiser Horizons

            Thanks, Joon! Now why can't I figure out how to do that? . . . or is that a moderator only command?

                  Bumping her to the top for a last minute promo . . . . she'll be going under the plastic here in the near future or, at least, before the end of October so thought I'd repost for those who might want to get a look-see before she gets all wrapped up.
