205 Bowrider
Bayliner 205 Bowrider Test Video

The Bayliner 205 was introduced for 2003 as a replacement for the 19 footer. Customers were looking for more length and room in the cockpit, so they added some inches in both directions and called it the Capri 205. Add her weight of about 3100 lbs and you have a nice sport boat that is pretty easy to tow behind the family vehicle and fits into the carport or garage.
