47′ Bayliner 4788 Pilothouse 2000 Ask $169,900 (09/17) Sold $155,000 (07/18) FL, USA

Why I’m hesitant to now take 4788 listings on the boats with 330hp Cummins.: Right after the 2002 4788 engine survey fiasco, I was hired to be the buyers pre-surveyor for this 2000 4788. I had sold her to her owners in 2005 out of Hampton Virginia for $270k. Her owner ran her gently, never overloaded.. . The boat was sharp! Her owners had basically done a total restoration on her. Why? Because she was 18 years old, and the wife liked things perfect.  So quick summary:  NICE boat- engines needed replacing.

This was the nicest 4788 available on the East Coast Market, but like all others that have the 330’s, there are engine issues inherent to these boats due to over propping when new. UNLESS the 4788’s have had their props re-pitched (only $300.00 each) OR already have new engines-they’re likely going to need new engines IF you plan to run them at the speeds they were designed to run. UNLIKE the others, this one has already had the rest of the inherent issues fixed. New foredeck ($4k), new hoses (drains, engines, etc), all leaks and leak damage corrected (new drain hoses and fittings), newer: refrigerators, icemaker, batteries, exterior aluminum repaired, and painted, most all soft goods, bedding replaced, etc.

NEVER been storm damaged was a big plus.

Something I can’t say about other 4788’s I’ve seen totally misrepresented. One Florida 4788 recently sold was represented by a Ft. Lauderdale broker as being a 2001 model, yet was actually was a 2000, AND was a ‘Hurricane Sandy’ boat to boot. He knew this, yet, then still posted it on Soldboats as the incorrect model year, with no caveat of her damage history. I know the history of most 4788s.

The Brown Eyed Girl was HEADS above the Texas 2000 that sold for $130k in June 2018 which had been kicked from owner to owner without her Hurricane Katrina damage ever disclosed.  The 2000 Maryland 4788 that was a total POS sold for $45k summer of 2018.

 

 

Custom helm seat. Custom sole. All pilothouse upholstery has been redone.  All doors open and roll freely with one finger.

.

Rebuilt bow pulpit and foredeck, with recent windlass. $4k   BECAUSE sealants dry out IF they were ever used at all, and experience has shown that those bolts there holding the pulpit and windlass (along with foot switches) weren’t properly sealed, and over time water enters the coring. The pulpit is cored with plywood, so….

Her bow pulpit and foredeck has been rebuilt, and a newer style windlass installed. Her aluminum window frames, and other exterior are showing no corrosion, because it had been repaired. She has a recent bimini. She has recent cockpit coaming,  She has a newer refrigerator in the bridge entertainment center. Her davit swiveled, but not as easily as I like to see them. It needs to be repaired. I have a PDF file available showing you how to do it. Her windshield wipers are good (most 4788’s they aren’t).

There are NO scratches or dings in her exterior, or rubrails. Her swim platform has a rubber rubrail it’s whole length. No cracks. Her aluminum swim platform cover has no corrosion.

ALL exterior doors open and roll easily with one finger.

Newer carpets throughout. newer sat TV in the salon with surround sound.

The galley has a newer 12v/110v refrigerator/freezer. A newer microwave oven, newer trash compactor. Her icemaker has clean ice. She has custom blinds. The whole boat is “Limo Tinted”. She has newer carpets throughout. She has newer galley sole. NICE.

The VIP stateroom has a newer full width mattress.  The vacu-flush head system is freshly rebuilt and both heads serviced. She has TWO (2) newer AC systems with heavier BTUs.

.Everywhere I looked I saw newer equipment that was listed on her spec sheet. She smelled fine. No odors whatsoever. CLEAN. No pets, no children, just used by a healthy (non smokers) couple who do NOT, and have NOT ever lived aboard her.

This vessel has never been storm damaged.  I’ve known her since new. A buyer told me had heard a rumor of Hurricane Irma damage, but she was hauled OUT of the water up the Anclote River in Tarpon Springs for Hurricane Irma, which for the record struck further down south of Tampa Bay. She sat in a slip on the Anclote River near her owners home ever since arriving in Florida from Hampton Va..

 

I sold this vessel to her current owner back in 2004 for $270k when she was located in Hampton Virginia.  If she was closer to me, I would had happily taken the listing on her, but she’s sitting across the state from me on the freshwater Anclote River in Tarpon Springs Florida, which precluded me servicing the owner for the casual looker.

.  Her bottom was painted 9/17, and she was fully serviced at that time. She’s now FRESH   She HAS her original salon table (just try to find one if a boat doesn’t have one) she has one factory salon chairs. She has a Bridge Entertainment Center (can not be found aftermarket) with a new refrigerator . Just turn the key and go cruise.

I’ve sold over 40 of these boats, and taken WAY more than that to survey. I KNOW these vessels. I know where the “boogaboo’s” hide, their latent defects, where leaks come from, and how to fix them. I know which one’s have undisclosed damage history, plus I have a Rolodex of previous and current 4788 owners (who’re are out seriously cruising them) who I put my clients in contact with. I know the TRUE expense to restore these boats. You gain a huge support network with me.. I don’t sell Sea Rays. Plus it costs you nothing extra for my opinions. It’s included in the commission the seller has agreed to pay us brokers when he listed the vessel, but when you hire a buyers broker it puts my fiducial responsibility to YOU, not the seller.. Please read my page “About” above.

9/2017 fresh bottom paint, fresh wax.

9/17

These vessels aren’t known for blisters, so that’s another thing you DON’T have to worry about when buying a 2000 4788.

New underwater lights 9/17. Note the condition of her through-hull fittings.

Checkout that custom Galley sole!! Nice.

 

Newer custom sole, as originally this is just carpet. Newer upholstery too.

 

 

 

Bridge entertainment center there to your left. I’m HOPING the davit has been rebuilt. (it wasn’t)  These are weak points on these boats. I have the PDF file if you wish to tackle it yourself, otherwise I know a company in Florida that rebuilds them.

 

 

The VIP stateroom, which is the quietest place to sleep.

How many boats this size have bathtubs? Answer: none of the Taiwan tubs.

One of the reasons people buy these 4788’s is that Cummins has a program where they take out the old engines and install remanufactured one’s with full FIVE YEAR WARRANTIES for between $16k -$25k depending on your local dealer. At the price point people these vessels are actually selling for- that’s pretty damn cheap to have a fully equipped vessel with NEW ENGINES w/warranties for under $200k!   Many owners of these boats have replaced both engines when they were actually OK because “why not?”  Ounce of prevention and all that.  These engines come out in one piece easily through the salon door (port engine) and starboard window for the starboard engine.

Her coaming has been recently been replaced.

Note her back up camera

Disclaimer;    “New and newer” does not mean brand spanking new. It means fairly recent and appears new. If you want a NEW Bayliner 4788, the newest one is 17 yro. The newest Meridian 490 is nine years old -last hull layed up in 2008 (although a few have 2010 HIN numbers) . Meridian quit building boats (none were pilothouses) altogether in 2016. .
