Bayliner 288 Discovery Dual Helm Flybridge Cruiser

"What were the main features of the 288 that took your fancy ? "The good accommodation for that size boat. There was nothing we could find in that size and price that had the accommodation and facilities like the 288. Things like the galley, fridge and good-sized shower and toilet, nice flybridge and comfortable area for the kids--it's just a unique boat in that 30ft flybridge cruiser range. A very good boat. "

On the test boat, the swim platform--which comes with a swim ladder--has optional carpet. Entry to the cockpit is made easy by a transom door. There is a hot and cold transom shower for a quick rinse after a swim and a transom hatch in the cockpit houses a deckwash with room left for storage. The cockpit has two optional rod holders for trolling, combing lights and is roomy enough for fishing activity or for a couple of deckchairs. The cockpit is open to the helm, offering good visibility for the skipper backing down on a marlin or simply having a chat with sunbathers whose drinks rest in beverage holders.

Hatches in the cockpit deck provide access to the engine bay, pumps and batteries. There are moulded steps to access the side decks.

The flybridge is accessed via ladder steps from the cockpit. The skipper sits on a swivelling pedestal bucket seat and can keep good company with two adults on the L-shaped passenger/navigator lounge. It's in comfort and protected from the weather by a bimini top and clears all-round. There are a couple of beverage holders for the thirsty.

The skipper has tilt steering and controls for trim tabs, windlass and searchlight, plus all the gear required to navigate safely such as radio, sounder, and gauges for all the expected information.

Accommodation on the Bayliner 288 - Back through the cockpit, a sliding door offers access to the cabin. The head to starboard includes marine toilet, hot and cold shower, sink and a vanity cabinet. To port is a curious tuck away mid-berth under the raised dinette.
The Discovery 288 can sleep six: one couple in this clever mid-berth under the dinette, another couple in the forward V-berth, and the dinette converts into a small double berth.
The mid-berth is basically a futon-style mattress on the carpeted deck. It is not fixed and can slide aft for extra room. A curtain offers privacy. " - Daniel Tillack Editor of Modern Boating Magazine
