General Description

The Bayliner 4788 Pilothouse MY is a restyled and lengthened version of the popular 4550/4588 Pilothouse MY Bayliner produced from 1984-93. Aside from the additional two feet of hull length, Bayliner designers reversed the radar arch on the 4788 and softened the flybridge profile for a sleeker and more modern appearance.

Inside, the superb pilothouse floorplan of the original 4588 was continued in the newer model with few changes. The L-shaped lounge was moved to starboard in the salon, and the increased hull length of the 4788 can be seen in the enlarged galley and salon dimensions. Two of the three staterooms are fitted with double berths, and the third cabin-which opens to the master stateroom-has a settee with hinged upper and lower berths.

Visibility from the raised pilothouse is excellent. The cockpit is sheltered from the sun by a bridge overhang, and the side decks are wide enough for safe and secure foredeck passage. On the downside, the engine room is a tight fit. with Twin 370hp Cummins 6BTA 5.9 diesels cruise at 20-21 knots.
