4788 Pilothouse

$335,000 CAD

Vancouver, BC

Fantasea VII has been seen cruising the coast of BC for the last fifteen summers with its current owner. Every year he fully serviced and updated parts of this boat, Kept in a boathouse for many years and it shows. All the upgrades are the right moves, such as the hard top, propane stove, large tender, fresh water heads, Most of the time it was cruised at 8 knots so the engines may have more hours but not pushed hard. Very clean and shows well. Located in the Fraser River and is easy to view. For a production boat it is one of Bayliner's most successful models, and is still a great family boat, and a perfect way to get out on the water and enjoy life.

Feel warm and relaxed any time of the year, all the interior fabric looks refreshed, very little signs of wear, The woodwork is also in top condition and adds a true look of a fine ship The current owner always serviced the boat at the end of the summer, updating anything that was not to his liking. Mentioned after 15 summers on the boat he never had a mechanical problem, or did any damage to the hull. It shows, and it is now your turn to cruise and relax for years to come.  


The combination of galley down and in the salon is what makes the 4788 so popular, A large "L" shaped settee to your starboard, two relaxing tub chairs to port, Large adjustable coffee table,  The u shaped galley is to the port forward, separated by a raised counter, the galley has hardwood floor, new gas stove, new refrigerator and plenty of drawers and cupboards for all your cooking needs.
