    Make sure it has enough power as some of the older models were serverly under powered most of those had Volvo Pentas in them. A friend of mine has one that is at least 12 years old and still going strong his has a V8 for power. He bought it new and has taken excellent care of it and it shows. They are a very nice boat for Erie when powered properly. Most of the newer ones are powered just fine. Of course if it is an OB then you have more options.

    Default Survey

    I would spend the money to get a boat survey/inspection done if you are serious. I had a 27' Sportcraft, used to run salmon charters in Michigan. The DNR did the inspections/surveys and were always complaining about the Bayliner's having problems with stringers and transoms being bad. Just a suggestion.

    This is our boat. It's a 2000 with a 150 horse Merc. Outboard still looks and runs brand new. Plus we made a lot of upgrades. But never have had a problem.

    it has already been checked out and passed with no rot in the transom or stringers thanks for all the info the boat definetly passes the eye test thats for sure and its already set you for trolling with the downriggers and planer boards

    Default bayliner

    I checked into a bayliner with cuddy. I chose to buy a caravelle walk around instead. I didn't want the cuddy and I am happy with the walk around.

    We had a 2005 Bayliner Trophy 2052 with 4.3 Mercruiser. We liked the boat very much, easy to maintain and looked good. Sold it in 2012 to get a bigger boat. Not once did we have to take it back to the dealer for repairs. Had all the power we needed top end about 38 mph.
