The Bayliner 4788 (later Meridian 490) is one of the most successful selling Pilothouse Motor Yachts of all time and for a good reason! Timeless lines and extremely roomy with three staterooms, cockpit, large salon and galley and an expansive flybridge create an unbeatable package for days of sunshine and fun!
The popular Bayliner 4788 is a versatile Pilothouse design that offers a raised inside pilothouse helm station protected from the elements, with functional cruising visibility and comfort. The pilothouse has port and starboard sliding door access to the forward deck for docking or anchoring or picking up a mooring. Changing to the flybridge helm is only a few steps away.
It is known throughout the industry that Bayliner has designed some of the best interior living spaces on boats. The 4788 salon is impressive with an open air feel with large opening windows for visibility and fresh air. Comfortable living stations, large salon level galley, wet bars inside and out, 3 staterooms, two heads with showers, and a washer dryer, make the pre-owned 4788’s a great value that ensures they’ll always be in demand. The 4788s with Cummins diesels hold their value particularly well.
