28' Bayliner 1983 - Contessa - YS180411

General Description

A popular boat for several years, the Bayliner Contessa Command Bridge was marketed as an affordable family sedan primarily designed for coastal and inland cruising. She's built on a solid fiberglass hull with a relatively wide beam and moderate freeboard - still a fairly good-looking design today in spite of her age. Inside, the original floorplan had a single stateroom with a convertible dinette to port, a convertible settee opposite, and a privacy door forward. A wide ten-foot beam makes the 2850 Command Bridge a roomy boat inside. Standard features include a lower helm, swim platform, and swim ladder. Not surprisingly, storage space is at a premium. There's seating for four aft of the helm on the console.

Actual Condition

The owners had her for years and had many great memories on this Bayliner. However, the time has come to pass along this spacious vessel to a new owner to continue her legacy. The owners have asked CSI to re-market the vessel. Typically something of this age, we wouldn't have interest in re-marketing. However she was so clean and well kept that we felt she deserved the effort. Below is a list of what can be found on this beauty. Overall she looks great!

• Full canvas covers w/shears and window
• Built in TV, microwave, stove and fridge
• Power winch
