Re: Bayliner command bridge motor cruiser 27'

Janeyrose:
It is not clear whether you have already committed to the Bayliner or are just considering it. If it is the latter, I suggest you consider a small diesel-powered trawler. You can find quite a number of options in the 30ft range on Yachtworld in a range of prices. They will give you the fuel efficiency and perform much more like the sailboat you are used to. For a 30ft boat, you should try to find a single screw trawler with an engine no larger than 150HP, and could be as small as 65HP.

Cheers Andy and Jane from UK.

Jane, head over to the Bayliners Owners Club. Google it. These folks are a wealth of info when it comes to Bayliners. They can advise you of pro's and con's and what to look out for on this model. For what it's worth, back in the day I had Bayliner 2651 and cruised at 25.5 mph to 26.5 mph burning 9.7 gallons an hour. This boat had the 5.0 liter motor. I had a Lowrance fuel sensor integrated into the chartplotter and this is how I know exactly how much fuel was consumed at cruise...

MPG sorry about that, I think their normal cruise was in the mid 20s MPH.
