The 5788 Pilothouse is the flagship of Bayliner, as was the later version, the Meridian 580. Known as a value priced vessel, the model earned respect for:
PLUS: 800 Gallons of treated diesel fuel on board
Who'd a Thought is a classic pilothouse design where the staterooms are accessed via a companionway forward and down from the pilothouse. At the bottom of the companionway is a foyer with doors leading into three staterooms, a fourth door opening to the guest head and shower, and a fifth door opening to a stacked washer and dryer. Forward find the generous VIP cabin, with direct access to the guest head to starboard with a sink, vacu-flush toilet and a walk in shower. Opposite the head on the port side is the guest cabin with cross over upper and lower bunks. Aft is the sumptuous, full-beam master stateroom with the queen sized bed lying athwartship. A dressing area with a sink is on the starboard side of the stateroom. The head with a separate full size bathtub, shower and vacu-flush toilet are directly aft of the dressing area. The headboard has been neatly modified and refinished to permit the berth to be shifted outboard, to increase the walk around access, like the Meridian 580.

VIP Guest Stateroom:
Aft of the galley is the perfectly proportioned salon in largely original, practical finishes. The typical window mullions have been removed to dramatically enhance the views out the expansive side windows. The settee seats six comfortably plus there are two stools. The table height can be adjusted via an electric motor operated by a switch. On the starboard side of the salon there is a wet bar with a SS sink and entertainment centre. The tone is enhanced by a stunning etched glass door on the TV cabinet, behind which is the audio visual system. This cabinet has been modernized by an electric lift for the flat screen TV! All of the lighting is now LED, and multi-colour capability. The Vimar light switches and plates, modern digital AC controls and furnace thermostats all enhance the upgraded yacht feel of the space.
The galley is stunning, and a feature part of the redevelopment of this remarkable yacht. It is very open to and a part of the bright, open salon/dining area. The floor has been replaced in a blending wood, running through to the dinette, and up the stairs to the pilothouse, including the steps to the flybridge creating a modern yacht look and feel. This galley is a cook’s heaven with generous counter space, and big, clear windows, and modern appliances.
At the base of the pilothouse stairs on the starboard side is a dinette that seats six comfortably. On the port side is the galley that features a propane stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave oven and full sized refrigerator with freezer. The counter top provides a large working space plus two deep stainless steel sinks and garburator.
The pilothouse has large windows on three sides which provide excellent visibility and a bright interior. This space has been enhanced by a corian table top, an electric Stidd helm seat in rich black leather.
Side doors access both side decks, and steps up and aft lead to the flybridge. An array of controls, gauges, and navigation electronics (including GPS, radar, autopilot,VHF radio, video depth sounder and a large screen for displaying Navionics navigation software and camera images are impressive and thoughtfully laid out. Details follow in that section below.
Behind the captain's chair is a large "L" shaped settee, that can easily seat four. Note the following:
The flying bridge is accessed from both the pilothouse or the molded steps from the aft cockpit. This space has been adjusted for the purpose of entertaining and enjoying time with family and friends. With no flybridge tender, the addition of a home sized barbecue, and repositioning of the bridge seats, the entertainment space has been extended back to the rear of the bridge deck. A large umbrella, with proper anchoring was added. Deckadence deck covering plus new upholstery (Sept 2022)
The upper helm station has a full set of engine instruments, navigation aids, (details in that section below), trim tab controls, bow thruster controls, and remote anchor windlass controls are provided along with a digital anchor rode counter. There are two helm chairs and seating for up to six more people. Custom barbecue console with sink and portable freezer. Electric davit and space for suitable tender.
Access is accomplished two ways, by the broad swim step and through transom gates either side or by stepping off the dock directly through the custom starboard side gate and into the spacious cockpit. Large hatches access the huge lazarette, a sliding glass door to the salon with new cover, moulded steps to the flybridge, which when electrically raised provide entry to the engine room. Step up to side decks on both port and starboard with good sized handrails leading to the forward deck, with two door access to the pilothouse, and a large foredeck with provision for a sun pad, chain locker deck access and a substantial anchor windlass.
"Who'd a Thought" is powered by renowned, twin 610 HP MAN turbo diesel engines with approximately 1850 hours. The electrical system is powered by a 15 KW Westebeke generator, now housed in a custom fabricated sound box and with the exhaust routed through a water/gas separator to reduce sound levels to an absolute minimum.
Most hoses have been replaced with new, heavy duty hoses running off through hull valves, exhaust risers, bilge pumps, engine coolant fuel lines etc. The blue hoses are Trident, the best and most expensive hose available.
Heating for the boat is provided by a 60,000 BTU diesel fired hydronic furnace. Separate digital thermostats are available in four zones for warm, drying comfort throughout the vessel. The water capacity is augmented by a new Rainman water maker capable of producing up to 25 gallons per hour.
In the lazarette, a custom built sound shield was built for the 15Kw genset and a water separator fitted. There is an air compressor to power the boat horn and pump up water toys for the kids.
Big, oversized Johnson bilge pumps, in a pair in the bilge below the stairs, with one way valves to reduce back flow - these pumps vacate bilge water. There are eight, likely double the standard, and each of greater capacity. The pressure water system is powered by a Headhunter and the deck outlet for and aft by a Johnson pump that will spray water 40 feet!
Again, there are many detail upgrades and improvements in the engine room, noted below:
Pacific Yacht Systems was invited to help design and install a robust AC and DC system of current design built with redundancy in central components, and the latest in electrical technologies, and laid out for efficiency, ease of use, and total dependability.
The entire DC wiring system has been replaced from the panels back to the power sources to contemporary large yacht standards to achieve: the highest level of safety, efficient charging, new age batteries, redundancy, serviceability and convenience of use. The design of the system planning with Pacific Yacht Systems and weeks of their work. Instead of simply strapping up cables to the engine room deck head and running them behind a panel on the bulkhead - a wire nest as before - a conduit was laid beside a stringer, and new cables pulled. A row of battery switches neatly labeled show clearly where power is routed to, which allows it to be safely shut down for service of that sector as need be.
There are two inverters - both function as chargers - to supplement output, one functions as and inverter, the other a standby in case the first malfunctions.
240/120VAC power is distributed through a circuit breaker protected panel with appropriate volt and amp gauges, and switches for fore and aft shore selection and shore and ship power. AC power is provided by 240/120V50Amp shore connection, with a Charles isolation transformer to the panel, by a 15Kw diesel powered generator, and, for light 120VAC loads, by a Trace 4000 Watt inverter, powered by the house bank of batteries.
24/12VDC power is distributed through circuit breaker protected panels, one for 24VDC and the second for 12VDC, both with volt and amp gauges. There are two banks of batteries. The house bank is comprised of 8 x 12VDC batteries, linked in series and parallel to provide 800 amps at 24VDC. The start bank is comprised of, two for each engine, Deka Sea-Mate 8A27 batteries in series for each 24VDC starter. Each engine battery is remotely switched from the pilothouse.
The battery banks are charged by alternators on each engine with port and starboard intelligent alternator power distribution system. When AC is present, a Promariner battery charger charges the engine start battery bank and the two Trace inverters with 125 amp charge capacity each, charge the house bank. Note that only one inverter puts out AC. It is wired to a switch and a simple hook up to replace the primary inverter in the event of failure.
