1999 Bayliner 2859 Ciera Express
Up for sale is a very clean 1999 Bayliner 2859 Ciera Classic Special Edition! This is a great all around boat that can be used for fishing trips, family outings or simply coastal cruising. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this gem. I am the third owner of this boat and I know a bit of its history. Some of these pictures are from when I purchased the boat. Ive added updated photos to this listing. This boat cleans up very well.
The boat is powered by a 5 year old Mercruiser 7.4 MPI and runs very quiet. Engine has no shake at all and the mounts are in great shape. The motor was replaced just before I bought it 4 years ago. They made this boat with a diesel, 350 or the 454. The 454 is the best to get it up on plane and going. It is your typical cabin cruiser with galley, head, aft cabin and v-berth. I have never used the head but always had it checked during the winterization process. This boat also has air conditioner and hot water heater already on board, Ive never used. There is so much storage space on this boat. Upholstery is in mint condition, no rips or tears. Interior cushions are in exceptional shape for being almost 20 years old.
Probably one of this most unique features on this boat is the lockable Alaskan Bulkhead that makes the boat very secure. There are not many 2859s on the market with this feature. I personally replaced the lock set for the cabin door and it works perfectly. The Alaskan Bulkhead feature makes the cabin completely weatherproof. All the windows slide perfectly and all have working screens to keep the bugs out. The headliner is in perfect condition. The only upholstery blemish is a small loosening of the stitching on the corner of the helm seat, see photo.
Ive kept the boat clean and maintained accordingly. The boat has two starter batteries and another large house battery for use at anchor. I also resealed all the windows and installed camper gutters to deflect water away from the windows during rain. The result has been a dry cabin and clean monkeyfur.......if you know what I mean. ;). Windows are all original and dont leak. All track that windows slide in were replaced last year. At that time, window drains were cleaned out and edges resealed. Stock snap in window covers for front three windows in perfect condition. I made window covers for the side windows resulting in a very private cabin.
