The Perfect Starter Boat That Youre NOT Going to Out-Grow in One Season!
Having sold this boat in July 2013 to a very happy new owner, who took her out to Spain to enjoy in the sunshine, he is now selling her to upgrade to a cruiser
Now, I do appreciate the irony in the headline here; in that this owner has indeed outgrown the boat in one season! But I suppose hes the exception that proves the rule!!
What you see here is the advert that we created for the sale back in July 2013. The boat is now located in Spain and she looks just as good today as she does in the pictures and video, shot last July, that you see here. If youre interested in the boat, get in touch by phone or e-mail or fill in the contact form at the bottom of this page, and Ill send you through lots more information.
What follows is the rest of the advert for the boat that we first posted in July 2013
Firstly, I must apologise for using the term Starter Boat its one of those standard industry terms that is so over-used (to describe everything from an 8ft dinghy to a 30ft cruiser depending on who youre talking to), that its has really lost all meaning. BUT
maybe it got your attention, cause youre looking for a sports boat
In my mind a starter boat is something that fits with your idea of boating, that isnt intimidating and that crucially will allow you and your family to enjoy the boating lifestyle and want to keep coming back for more! A great starter boat is one that appeals to the head as well as the heart, and has the ability to keep ALL the family on board with the boating dream.
If youve been thinking about buying a sportsboat specifically, then these are the reasons why I reckon this 2005 Bayliner 185 is just about the ideal place to start:
Its Easy To Handle At 186″ long and on a single axle trailer its easy to get to grips with both on the water and on the driveway.
With space for 7 people plus gear its Big Enough For All The Family nobody needs to get left standing on the beach getting cold everyone can head off for a full days fun together.
Its Versatile enough to keep everyone happy whether youre relaxing in the sun, picnicking on board, or pulling water toys, this boat can do it all in comfort.
Its Reliable have a look at the video to see for yourself just how well maintained this boat is; it looks like brand new and you can be sure shell give no trouble.
It Wont Cost The Earth At around a third the price of a new model, whilst looking like she just rolled out of the showroom, this boat is stunning value for money. Maintenance costs for the Mercruiser 4.3L 190HP Sterndrive engine are also very reasonable, requiring a single service and winterising each year.
It Works In The Sunshine And The Rain with an immaculate set of full camper covers the rain wont ruin a day out; just pop the covers up and carry on!
Its big enough to Make The Family Feel Safe the single biggest reason why boats are bought, used once or twice, and then forgot about, is because not everyone gets into it, and usually its because they got a scare or they got soaked! This Bayliner 185 at 186″ long, with low set seating, high gunnels and a decent beam, is beefy enough to behave in choppy water and keep everyone feeling safe and secure, and eager to come back for more!
THE BIGGY- Its got enough Power! With the Mercruiser 4.3L V6 190HP motor this boat has bags of power for pulling watertoys, cruising effortlessly at half throttle, and generally getting up and going, even with a full load on board. As the kids get bigger and more into watersports and invite friends along, this is a boat that will cope with it all in its stride.
All in all, I reckon you cant do much better than this for an entry level sportsboat.
The fact that this one is IMMACULATE in every regard just sweetens the deal! To see for yourself just how clean it is go to www.GulfStreamBoatSales.com and watch the full 15 minute long video tour.
