With open minds, we stepped onto the nonskid entry over theengine cover. First impression from a high angle was theside-to-side space. It breathes because Bayliner kept the gunwalesnarrow so much so that there was room for a backpack between thecockpit seats and the interior side panels. Though the seating isset up for seven, it would be more practical for six, which is asmany as you’d realistically want in a small boat powered by a3.0L engine. As a bonus, the back-to-back seats slide down to formtwo sleeper lounges. Our test boat came with the optional XTpackage, which includes a collapsible tower, CD player and upgradedgraphics for an extra $1,300.
