Depending on the Bayliner boat model, the length ranges from 20 to 22 feet, the beam averages 8 feet, the draft runs 2 to 3 feet and the weight between 3,000 and 4,000 pounds. Fuel tanks vary between 37 and 55 gallons, while speeds can top 50 miles per hour.
The hull of a Bayliner boat is a modified "V" shape that lets the boat cut through the water easily. The deadrise, which governs how a boat cuts through the waves, ranges from 18 to 20 degrees. This makes the Bayliner suitable for lake and ocean use. The inboard MerCruiser engines also vary, with power packages ranging from 135 to 220 horsepower.
Bayliner also makes boats that are suitable for overnight stays, either dockside or anchored off-shore. The sleeping cabin is forward, and the boats may be ordered with additional seating space, dining tables, power storage options and portable heads. The beam, the maximum width of the boat, is farther forward than in other boat designs, which increases usable space above and below decks.
The trailers come in galvanized or black, painted finishes. They have disc brakes, a tongue jack and a swing-away tongue that makes loading and unloading easier. Trailers are sold as an option.
