Newport beach, CA Boat Show
My wife & I went to the Boat Show on Thursday & Had a terrific time! The weather was perfect (75 degrees with a light breeze) and the "In The Water Exhibits" were outstanding. (IMO) All kinds of boats...from kayaks to multi million dollar small ships. New and brokered. Best show in years!
After a stop for dinner in Dana Point, I ask my wife what she thought the "best bang for the buck" in the whole show was. She said that the 2002 Bayliner 4788 @ $220K (asking) and in "immaculate" condition with 300 hours was her pick. I couldn't agree more! Cruising in the mid teens with a pair of 330B Cummins, generator, inverter, heat & air, nice inflatable dinghy with a 15 hp OB, beautiful and functional interior, great P.H., etc.The few warts and pimples that I saw could be fixed for 1 boat unit.
For a couple that wants a great live aboard & coastal cruiser, turn key, ready to cruise, this was the boat.
