Bayliner claims that the 175 BR is their hottest selling boat. We had no reason to doubt them, but considering the quality of Bayliners lately, we suspected it was a dubious claim to fame. After looking her over, we found little that we didn’t like about this fun runabout. Bayliner also wants us to believe they’ve come of age in designing boats able to squeeze more performance out of less horsepower. To that we say “really?” We can’t prove that by just looking her over, so we put the 175 BR through a full test to see just how she performs.
