"METICULOUS" WEBSTER DICTIONARY DEFINITION; meticulous: adjective me·?tic·?u·?lous | m?-?ti-ky?-l?s Definition of meticulous marked by extreme or excessive care in the consideration or treatment of details. We all respect and admire and desire that boat. Look no further this is it. No amount of love, attention, and effort has been spared. The owners have spent more time fussing on Sonoran Sea than they did using it. This is your opportunity to take advantage of the opportunity. Price versus Value. There is no doubt that you will find another Bayliner 3888 at a lower price than the Sonoran Sea. You will likely not find another Bayliner 3888 at better value. The entire boat from Stem to Stern and from the hull bottom to the decks and Flybridge are in Meticulous order. You won't need to do anything to this boat. It is a turn key, drive away and enjoy it boat. Take a look at the maintenance and inventory records and this will verify the attention to detail that the owners have lovingly poured into this boat. If you want Meticulous, then you have to book an appointment to view Sonoran Sea.

Bayliner 3888 "Sonoran Sea"

Sonoran Sea is a superb and meticulous example of the very popular Bayliner 3888 sedan style cabin cruiser.  She has a well laid out floorpan with large master stateroom forward with walk around full size queen bed.  Further aft on the port side there is a guest stateroom with full size queen bed.  There are two heads, one to port with sit down bath and shower, accessible from both staterooms and one to starboard, accessible from the master stateroom. 

The second stateroom is on the port side.  Opposite on the starboard side is a well equipped galley with microwave and 4 burner Princess electric stove and full oven, and a Wolf Gourmet. oven.  There is a large single stainless steel sink with a new faucet. Pressurized hot and cold water and full size refrigerator recently replaced.

Step up from the galley into the bright roomy main salon with dining area and wrap-around settee for entertaining. All of the upholstery, lighting etc. has been upgraded.  Forward on the starboard side is the well equipped lower helm and captain's chair.  

On the aft deck cockpit there is room for a couple of deck chairs and a new teak table.  Above deck on the flybridge is a second command helm station with cushioned seating around and covered with full enclosures

She is powered by two 175 hp Hino iesel engines accessible through the cabin sole and via a door at the aft deck port side.
