Lord have mercy- she actually closed. $234k 2016.
There have only been three (3) Bayliner 5288’s sold on the East Coast between 2015- 2019, and those three were all sold in 2015-2016.. From $195k-$265k -all were in excellent condition.
My excellent client hung in there, when most buyers would had fled at the first lie, but months later after countless haul outs, sea-trials, mechanic after mechanic, the problems were resolved, and the boat is now in her new home in Madisonville Louisiana.I was hired as the buyers AGENT and found this vessel for my buyer. I earned every penny in this deal as I must say that in all my years as a Yacht Broker, I’ve never run across an operation as incompetent, officious, and opaque as the outfit that owned this vessel, or their listing agent who “represented” her.. Unbelievable from start (May) to finish in September. Getting truthful answers from them was like trying to get answers from Hillary Clinton about Bengazi and her emails. They lied, postponed, “kicked it down the road”, delayed, and lied some more. If I hadn’t know this boats history and knew what questions to ask, I would had felt sorry for any buyer who bought this boat without ferreting out facts vs lies, as they sure weren’t volunteering it’s history. Ask me about MAN diesels. There’s a reason why buyers will pay more $$$ for a newer boat with Cummins.
These photos were taken by Blake Davis (aka the Pilothouse King) who thoroughly inspected her as a buyers agent. I had never seen one with an exterior this shiny in Florida (because she was from Maryland)- even back when the boats were brand spanking new. Her gel coat is spectacular for a 16 yro boat. Her interior appears as it did back in 2000.

Her upholstery is very nice, as is her Bimini top. Her “clears” are CLEAR.

COMMENTS: This is a beautiful yacht inside and out. UPDATE: All the mechanical issues were taken care of by it’s owner, and she was sold (leased) for $234k, then she ran direct from St. Petersburg home to Madisonville La., with no issues in 2016. To this day 12/23/19 she has served her owner well with no issues. After she was sorted out, she was a really tip top yacht.
This is a semi-displacement hull with a generous 16’3″ beam and a wonderful 3 Stateroom floor plan featuring a full beam mid-ship master stateroom with a full walk around berth. Her engine room is very spacious with near standing headroom and ample room for gear storage and ease of access to all machinery.
Having lived most all her life in the brackish waters of the Chesapeake Bay in a boat house under care of her original owner. She shows much younger than her age. Her Gel Coat has a very deep and lustrous shine and overall this low hour yacht shows very well. This vessel cannot be sold. Only leased. 35% down. 36 equal payments of 1% and then IF you choose to exercise the option to purchase at the end, a 29% payment is due.
This vessel is offered as a convenience by this broker/dealer to its clients and unless noted, is not intended to convey representation of a particular vessel.
