This handsome pilothouse yacht has long been recognized as one of the best big-boat buys in the industry. No one did it as well as Bayliner did and the 4588 was no exception to that.  

This 4588 is priced to move and the owner priced it right to get it sold. Low hours on the super reliable twin Hino Diesel engines.

Been used as a live-aboard for the last 7 years in fresh water.

With her Classic Northwest profile, The Bayliner 4550/4588 is one of the best-selling 45-foot Yachts ever produced. Affordable, and stylish, this all-weather Pilothouse Cruising Yacht offers exceptional fuel economy, a fantastic use of space, and more room than any other vessel in her class. In the warm teak Interior, she offers living spaces for summer or winter, for entertaining dozens or escaping with a book. The variety of living spaces include Salon, Pilothouse Dinette, Flybridge, En-suite Office, and Aft Cockpit making her comfortable in any Port in any season. This spacious cruiser sleeps four in two staterooms, plus two more in the convertible office/stateroom. There are two heads, each with a seperate shower and the master stateroom has a tub.

 The huge windows, Galley-up design and open floor plan create an amazing open-air feel in the salon, with plenty of room for entertaining. The Galley-Up design puts the cook at the center of the activities in this large, bright space.

Up a few stairs takes you to the raised Pilot House which offers great visibility for the Captain and a fabulous view for guests at the dinette. Entry doors on both sides and a hatch to the Flybridge provide excellent access for the Captain to move about.

The large Flybridge is shaded by a Bimini Top, and features a center Helm Station and an entertaining area, with seating for eight on two large L-shaped lounges. Aft on the extended hard top is a Davit and storage for the Boston Whaler tender.

The Master Stateroom is forward and features a Center-line walk-around queen berth, ample storage, and en-suite head with tub/shower. The en-suite office includes a computer desk and a settee, which converts to a berth, making this a 3rd stateroom for when extra guests are on board (currently being used for additional storage and hanger space).

The aft cockpit is sheltered by the hardtop and can be enclosed with canvas side-curtains for off-season use. The transom door and swim platform make her easy to board from the stern.

The 4588 is powered by fuel-sipping Hino Diesels.These 6-cylinder, 220 hp diesels have proven to be some of the most reliable and fuel efficient marine diesels ever built.

Power Boat Guide

With over 350 built during her production run, this handsome pilothouse yacht has long been recognized as one of the best big-boat buys in the industry. A careful blend of Pacific Northwest styling and comfortable interior accommodations result in a long-range, cruising yacht with instant eye appeal.  Pilothouse designs make excellent cruisers and they offer obvious advantages in colder climates. While she can sleep three couples, this is really a two-couple boat with the third stateroom used as a den/study. Outside, a bridge overhang provides weather protection in the cockpit, and the flybridge will accommodate a dinghy. Engine access is via two hatches in the cockpit sole. The sidedecks are wide and secure, and a wheelhouse door provides easy 'access to the foredeck. With standard 220-hp Hino diesels (250-hp beginning in 1991), she'll cruise at 16-17 knots at 1 mpg—excellent economy for a 45-foot yacht. The hull is fully cored to reduce weight, and a sharp entry and 15" keel provide good seakeeping qualities.
