Bayliner 245: Good Boat for Family Watersports - 05/06/2009

If you have a young family and you’re waiting until you can afford that shiny new Cobalt 24, we have some advice: don’t lose this precious summer waiting to be able to afford it – spring for the Bayliner 245 now. The reason is, that one of the unfortunate aspects of kids is that they grow up all too quickly – and the summer of 2009 will only come once. That’s why we are unabashed fans of Bayliner – this builder’s mission in life is to get as many people on the water for as low a price as possible. We believe in the concept. And, we keep saying, if you haven’t seen the new breed of Bayliners, you'll be suprised when you do. The 245 will be able do provide your family with most any water sport activity from towing, to skiing, wakeboarding, to swimming to just hanging out with friends and family away from the one-eyed monster. Best of all this boat is incredibly affordable.

There are few things that young children enjoy more than playing in and on the water.

The Bayliner 245 is one of the roomiest bowriders on the water and has a capacity of 11 people, which means you can have not only your family but the neighbors’ kids as well on your weekend outings. The kids love you, Dad and Mom, but they enjoy playing with their friends even more.

The Bayliner 245 was designed for young families starting their boating lifestyle. Mom and baby Sally will love it.

The 245 has an 8’6” beam which means it is trailerable. She weighs 3,973 lbs, draws 3’, and carries 78 gallons of fuel. Given her MSRP base price of $38,147 (which means you can buy this boat for less), she has a fair number of features, including: AM/FM stereo, inputs for iPods and MP3, cooler, head with Porta-Potti, pressure water, a transom shower, stowable table and a 220-hp 5.0L Mercury stern drive with Alpha I drive, among many other things.
