Santa Cruz, CA
For discerning tastes we present the most luxurious and upscale 4788 in the fleet. Numerous upgrades both mechanical and cosmetic have been performed without regard to cost. All interior lighting has been upgraded to LEDs. Also noteworthy are the 600 hour Cummins 330 6BTA Diesel engines and new 85 hour Westerbeke 12.5 kilowatt generator. Factory options include the flying bridge wet bar and three station air conditioning. Always in demand, these raised pilot house motor yachts are popular for many reasons.
The Bayliner 4788 Pilot House Motoryacht combines comfort, an elegant line, and luxury features. The large bridge deck, with its fully-appointed helm and generous lounge seating, allows captain and guests to enjoy the view together. The 4788 features a wide lounge seat sculpted into the foredeck for sunning, a large transom door for easy access to the broad boarding platform, and generous side decks with grab rails for extra security. The master suite includes a large double berth, twin hanging lockers, a separate dressing room with settee that converts to upper and lower bunks, and a private bath with large vanity and enclosed tub. The VIP stateroom offers another a double berth and across the companionway is a second bath complete with shower. The 4788 features a fully equipped electric galley, large salon windows, and unencumbered movement throughout the vessel. Standard equipment includes Garmin radar, AutoHelm autopilot, electric anchor windlass, and davit with electric winch.
In addition to practical modern styling and sensible good looks, they were strongly built, properly engineered, thoughtfully designed and had one of the best, most imitated, livable interiors of any vessel of this class.
This extremely successful line of vessels had a long production run starting in the mid 1970's, as the 45 and 4588 Motor Yachts becoming greatly improved in size and quality when the 4788 was introduced and finally finishing its presence as the Meridian 490. This design was so well laid out and popular that many other builders went on to produce their versions of this yacht. It is said the highest form of flattery is imitation.
The layout is spacious with comfortable, bright open living and entertainment spaces, three state rooms that include a master walk around queen berth, a double VIP cabin and a separate 2 single berth bunk room that is big enough for guests, children or easily made into an office.
The galley shares the same level open concept salon space. It is complete, bright, usable and with ample counter space, double sinks, full electric appliances. There is also a separate wet bar to enjoy while taking in the coastal views at anchor.
The salon will accommodate a crowd and flows nicely aft onto the covered cockpit area with gated access to the massive boarding /swim platform /marina deck.
The raised pilothouse has amazing visibility and modern navigational electronics. This is roomy enough for the guests to gather and enjoy the cruise and when the day has ended extra sleeping space as well.
The incredible fly bridge with full helm and entertainment area is under a Bimini. This is shared with the Boat Deck with its crane system to secure your dinghy.
This boat would make the ideal family cruiser or live aboard for a couple in the picturesque waters around the lovely state of California
