Broker's Comments

Bayliner have done a remarkable job of taking everything you would want in a larger motor cruiser and then fitting it into a 30 footer. And it seems to work with the 2556, the flybridge being a bonus for practicality without detracting from her lines as they often do on smaller boats.

The cockpit area is attractive and spacious with easy access to the engine and storage. The foredeck is clear and accessible via the side decks although with an electric windlass there's no need to be up there unless you want to be.

The real added bonus is that this particular 2556 has been re-engine in 2003 with a 300hp V8 supercharged diesel engine! Much more powerful the standard petrol version, she has better fuel economy and is safer too

Down below she is well laid out, double berths forward and aft are good sizes and the saloon table drops to make a very large berth if required. She has heating and hot water, the heads and shower are spacious clean and bright and the galley with a stove and microwave all will make staying aboard a pleasure. She charges via a deck mounted solar panel so is always ready to start up and go

29 Sept 18 update she has just had all new canvas. Pictures will follow
