The Bayliner 3888 Motor Yacht has long been recognized as a good value for those seeking a comfortable diesel cruising vessel at an affordable price.
With nearly one thousand 3888s built, the 3888 was one of the most popular designs of her time: she is economical to operate, and her interior boasts an incredibly innovative and useful layout for two couples or a family.
The Bayliner 3888 continues to stand the test of time, as their popularity carries on. People simply love the space, the layout, and the low operating costs.
Shear Moments is super-clean, and has been thoughtfully serviced. She is much loved and it shows.
The next owner will not have to catch up on deferred maintenance items so often encountered on vessels of this vintage. On Shear Moments, simply continue the existing service regimen, and start enjoying the cruising season immediately!
Boarding to the cockpit is effortless. Step through the opening transom door from the swim platform. The cockpit is cozy yet affords plenty of room for peaceful morning coffee, evening gin and tonics, or even alfresco dining for two.
Enter the salon via the teak framed glass door. There is a bar to starboard, large U-shaped dinette with settee to port, helm forward to starboard, galley two steps down to starboard. Guest cabin to port and master cabin forward. Each cabin has an ensuite head. The salon settee converts to a third double berth.
There is a cockpit ladder to flybridge with the upper helm and guest seating.
Throughout the boat are updated soft goods, tastefully decorated in a fun marine theme.
The owners have been carrying out a progressive program of updates over recent years from machinery to waste. There are currently no major projects on the “to-do” list; the new owners can just go cruising!
More details follow in the sections below.
There are two accommodations cabins each with an ensuite head and they share a shower / mini tub. Both staterooms are surprisingly spacious with the master forward and the guest cabin midships and to port.
The master cabin has an island queen berth. There are two hanging lockers and a multitude of other lockers and drawers. Everything has a place. Natural light and ventilation through opening port lights and opening overhead hatches, all with screens and privacy shades or curtains. Overhead LED lighting in addition to two individually controlled reading lights.
To starboard is the ensuite master head. It is quite roomy with basin, marine toilet, and storage. And to port is direct access to the shower stall.
The guest cabin is to port with an unexpectedly large berth. Natural light and fresh air through opening port lights with screens and curtains. Overhead LED lights and reading lights. Hanging locker and shelves.
There is a private guest head forward of the guest cabin, with direct access, and it includes the separate shower stall which is shared with the master cabin. It is a unique arrangement, and shows just how well these designers maximize the space available.
The salon, bar, dining, and lower helm areas are configured in the same space as one enters from the cockpit. To starboard is a storage area with a bar, and stereo controls. To port is the good sized built-in settee with table, storage below. The table drops to make another berth if needed.
Opening screened windows all around, with shades behind a teak valance.
The galley is down a couple of steps, forward of the lower helm. It is a bright space being open to the salon and with large windows and very good task lighting.
with U-shaped with an extended bullnose bending forward making the galley a large yet secure workspace. There is abundant storage in numerous drawers and lockers, and two opening port lights for natural light and fresh air, and ventilation.
The lower helm is to starboard in the salon with a captain’s chair, and all manner of ships monitoring and control systems close at hand.
Up from the cockpit is the command bridge accessed via a stainless ladder with teak steps. Seating along port and starboard benches, and the helm chair, which swivels to face guests. The after upper deck is also set up as an outdoor seating area, apart from the enclosed flybridge.
The cockpit is large enough for a 38’ vessel. There is plenty of room for a couple of deck chairs and a small folding table. And with the full enclosure and optional extended hard cover, this is a well-protected and inviting space!
There is access from the cockpit to the port and starboard side decks, to the foredeck.
AC and DC power services the vessel through circuit breaker panels. 110VAC is provided by 30 Amp shore connection, by the genset, or, based on available house bank battery power, through the inverter.
At sea, the batteries are charged by engine or generator driven alternators and while at a dock, by the inverter / charger via shorepower.
The machinery room is another area where the designers have innovated access and maintenance space. Access is via a large floor panel, or through a door from the cockpit.
Here are two proven 6-cylinder Hino EH 700 diesel engines, naturally aspirated, 175 hp each. Approximately 2,450 original hours.
