I used to timeshare a 32' Bayliner cabin
cruiser - about 10-11 years ago, in the Seattle
area. It was a model from the 1980s, maybe the 3270 or 3288. I am now in the market for possibly a new boat
, and I am finding that no one seems to make that style of cabin
cruiser, where you can pilot the boat
from either the flybridge or the cabin, which is above water
, with full windows giving a great view.
Does anyone make these any more? Current
Bayliner 32' and 34' models just seem like larger versions of what I expect from a 20-24' cruiser. Were the old cabin cruiser designs just not marketable? Or was it mainly an issue of fuel
efficiency and/or speed?
Thanks for any information you can provide.
