1996 Bayliner 3988 Command Bridge Motoryacht

LaConner, Washington

$129,900

Here it is, the next Bayliner 3988 to sell in the PNW! This is an extremely popular PNW boat as it has a great layout and a lot of boat for the money!
This 1996 Bayliner 3988 shows great throughout and is possibly the cleanest 3988 available at this time. The current owner has put in over $70k into the boat in the last 4 years and it shows! Twin Cummins 315hp Diesel engines (most have the smaller 250hp engines), starboard engine was replaced in 2020 (130 hours) and the port has 2600 hours on it (head gasket replaced 2020, preventive maintenance). 
With a 2 Stateroom and 2 head layout, this boat has a lot of room for a family or 2 couples. The master stateroom is an island berth and has 2 large hanging closets, along with electric heat. The master head has a vacuflush head, shower/tub, sink and cabinets. The guest stateroom has a large double berth and hanging closet. The guest head has a vacuflush head, shower and sink.

Large Salon with a sofa that converts into another sleeper and a large galley with stove top, oven, microwave, 2 refrigerators/freezer (NEW 2019), sink and tons of cabinets for storage. Across from the galley is a raised dinette. There is also a lower helm, so if you decide to drive from the cabin, you can do so.

The bridge has seating for 8 comfortably and has full canvas enclosure (NEW 2018), the helm has Glendenning wireless controls (throttle/shift), a Garmin 12" touchscreen MFD with GPS/Radar (NEW 2019), Auto Pilot, VHF and more. Cushions are in excellent condition with thicker, newer foam (NEW 2021) for comfortable seating. Also has the aftermarket hard top extension that goes over the cockpit, so you have more storage on top of the hard top for kayaks/paddle boards/storage. 

Some other highlights on this very clean Bayliner 3988;

- Diesel Generator
- NEW forced air Diesel Heating in 2020
- Electric Heating
- 3rd set of Controls in the Cockpit
- Nick Jackson Transom Davit
- Hard Bottom Inflatable Tender w/ NEW Yamaha 25hp 4 Stroke engine (engine new 2020)

- NEW Turbos on both engines in 2020
- NEW Carpeting throughout in 2019
- NEW Starting and House Batteries in 2020
- NEW Bottom Paint in 2020

If you are in the market for a boat of this size and price range, you won't find one cleaner along with all of the upgrades/improvements made on this boat over the last 4 years! Over $70k put into it and it shows! Only selling as buying a larger boat!
