The Mercruiser engine is certified as "Ultra Low Emissions" by the California Air Research Board. This is a modern engine with electronic fuel injection. The mechanical systems include hydraulic trim tabs, power steering and a macerator holding tank pumping system.

Independent test results report relatively low sound levels of 82 db at cruise and 87-89 db at full throttle which will allow a conversation when underway.

One enters the boat over the swim step through a gate in the transom into a cockpit area equipped with a forward facing folding bench seat on the transom and an aft facing fixed bench seat that separates the cockpit from the raised helm area. In addition to a single helm seat to starboard, there is an "L" shaped seating area to port.

A high radar arch rises over the cockpit area and supports the folding radar and GPS mast as well as providing stereo speakers for the cockpit area.

The entire helm and cockpit area are enclosed in removable, zippered canvas and clear panels for weather and sun protection.

From the helm one can pass down and forward into the cabin area or step up and through a fold-aside center window section for access to the long foredeck and anchor windlass. Fenders are stored on the deck rails forward. The helm and cockpit seating areas are essentially full width with no real provision for side decks.

The cabin is cleverly designed to provide a surprisingly roomy and useful space for a 28 footer. The initial impression is of a much larger cabin because it is open all the way to the bow. However the forward "V berth" area can be separated by sliding curtains to form a "forward compartment" with a degree of privacy. The forward V berth is a full six feet down the centerline with storage shelves on each side. The mid section is the main saloon with a reasonably well equipped galley on the port side and a dining table and two facing benches for seating. The table lowers to make a double berth when required.

The galley includes a covered two burner alcohol/electric stove and a sink with pressurized hot and cold water. The under-counter area is fully utilized for storage. A microwave is fitted above the sink. Also provided is a dual voltage refrigerator. There is space to install a coffee maker above the galley with sliding door storage next to it.

Aft of the dining area is a full wet head compartment with good headroom including toilet, basin and shower.

Under the cockpit is another double berth with 42” of room at the head and 28” at the foot. A portal into the helm area provides lighting to this space. When not used as a berth, this space provides a large storage area.

Broker's Comments

This Bayliner 285 Ciera offers a lot of useful space in its 28 feet, and appears in excellent condition and essentially as new with only approximately 220 hours of operation. It is stored on a trailer in the owner's building and shows no exterior signs of weathering. The interior is also in near-new condition with almost no signs of wear. The hinged radar/gps mast is a useful addition along with the 2007 model Raymarine C80 chart plotter. This system includes chart data for the local area.
