The Bayliner 265 is a very spacious boat for its size making it an economical way for a family of four to cruise overnights and take additional friends for a day at the beach or tubing. The single MercCruiser 5.0 260 HP with Bravo II stern drive only has 158 hours of use. This example also recently had a number of preventative maintenance items taken care of that should be performed on a ten year old boat no matter how many hours it has. following items are new: Exhaust manifolds & risers, hoses, serpentine belt, water pump, alternator, starter, A/C pump.  Bottom was stripped, barrier coated and painted with an ablative antifouling paint. Peace of mind & lower ownership costs for the buyer of this boat!

This is a 2-owner boat purchased by current owner in 2013. The boat has seen only light use by both owners with a remarkably low 158 hours on the engine. Since purchasing the boat the current owner has had the following routine maintenance performed by professional marine mechanics. 

New Exhaust Manifolds

New Exhaust Risers

New Starter

New Alternator

New Hoses

New Serpentine Belt

New Seawater Pump

New Seawater Impeller

New Air Conditioning Circulating Pump

This is the type of work that should be expected on any similar models after about ten years of service regardless of engine hours. Please keep this in mind when comparing this boat to any similar boats you are looking at. The work has already been done here making this boat turn-key without any major maintenance expenses on the near horizon. This maintenance also adds peace of mind when out on the water with friends & family, especially for any newer boaters.
