2011 Bayliner 285
More boat for your money
By Matt Spencer
You know, I don’t think there is any boat company out there that understands value more than Bayliner. Its goal with every boat is to bring you the most for your money while keeping it easy to run and maintain. So when we started hearing the buzz surrounding the new 2011 Bayliner 285 Cruiser, we knew it was going to be well worth the wait.
And wait we did. I was on the phone regularly with the Bayliner brass, asking if the boat was on its way north from Tennessee yet. Each time I got the same patient reply of “not yet, we’ll keep you posted.” Until that one glorious day I got the exciting news of “it will be there next week.”
This meant the wait was finally over! The only slight, minor, minuscule issue was that it was now the second week of November. The majority of boats at the marinas were already winterized and cosied up for the winter, and here we were looking to spend one last day on the water… no problem! I guess I just needed to make sure to dress warmly.
