"Bayliner’s engineers really excelled when it came to the interior design of this model. The main salon is multi-level with an open concept, U-shaped galley to starboard. An L-shaped sofa is off to port and further forward a dinette area offers additional seating. [...] The popularity of these models continues to grow. One thing is for sure, though, I certainly wouldn’t mind an extended cruise on this Bayliner model." - US BoatTest Review
