For Petes Sake is a 3818 Bayliner motoryacht. This model has always been known a great value but with her many upgrade such as an aluminum fully enclosed Alaskan Flybridge it offers her next owner not just a great cruiser but an extremely low cost and comfortable live aboard.
Stepping inside from the cockpit you find a warm comfortable and very bright salon. To port is a raised recently refreshed u-shaped couch with comfortable footstool big enough for everyone to share or a place to put a tray of snacks. To starboard is freestanding heater that provides the warm glowing feeling of a cabin fireplace. Convenient pull-down curtains provide privacy when at dock. A well laid out helm is just forward and with the removable helm seat that can expand the roominess of the salon. One step down from the salon you will find an expansive fully equipped galley with lots of storage and easy clean Formica counter tops. It is equipped for the chef with a Princess electric combination stove/oven, a Norcold freezer over refrigerator and a microwave with plenty of space for coffee makers, toasters or other appliances. Forward of the galley is a cozy, nicely equipped cabin available for guest or it can be used as a great storage room for the live aboard. Located just across and conveniently near the galley and main salon is the guest head. Moving forward you will find the comfortable and nicely appointed skipper's quarters with a walk around queen bed, plenty of storage and convenient shelf for all your personal items. The master head and guest head are equipped with Y-Valve electric toilets supported by 38 gallons of holding tank capacity. For the personal comforts of skipper, you find the unique luxury of a separated soaking tub/shower. This is supported by 85 gallons of fresh water and 6 more gallons of hot water. Finally, for your entertainment a Sony Stereo with and a Samsung TV rounds out your living comforts.
Upon stepping aboard the first upgrade you will see is right at your feet. A professionally installed fish hold in the swim platform.

Teak trimmed windows protected from the elements provide a nautical touch and don t show their age. Comfortable steps from cockpit to the side walkway with plenty of hand holds make moving forward a safe process. On the forward deck, you will find a capable ground tackle package with a 40 lb. Danforth connected to a generous 250 ft. of 5/16 galvanized chain all controlled by the convenience of an electric Muir windless. One of the great upgrades For Pete's Sake is the aluminum Alaskan Flybridge. It offers a carpeted and warm penthouse when docked and at anchor and when on the move, no matter what the weather, the view is hard to beat.
