Here is what the Yacht & Boat had to say about the 305;

What they liked most of all about the Bayliner 305 was just how well it uses what space it did have. For a boat its size, the Bayliner 305 has a remarkable amount of living room. Nothing is cramped, not the head and shower, not the bow berth, not the dinette, nor the galley. The layout follows an established formula of upstairs dinette, downstairs saloon/galley, bow berth, head and shower to port as you go downstairs and a supplementary berth aft below the stairs, or more geographically correctly, below the helm.

The bow berth is set at an angle across rather than along the boat's centre line. While it's not as easy to get the linen straight when doing your housework, this arrangement does allow more space in the galley and dinette. The amount of living space I keep referring to literally starts here. A curtain running in an L-shaped track around the ceiling provides privacy for the bow berth. You do have to step onto the dinette to clamber up into the berth though and that may present some difficulties for the less than limber.

The dinette fills the starboard side of the galley. It is an open C-shape and four adults could certainly dine here without crowding each other and without getting underfoot of whoever is working the galley at the time. It's worth checking out the photos of the dinette/galley area to see how well the strip windows along each side ' which make the boat look sleek from outside ' contribute to this open feel I keep going on about below decks. Ambient light in the downstairs living area goes way past adequate into ample. Bright and airy immediately springs to mind.

The galley itself is as compact as the limited amount of space available dictates; however, again, compact bears no relationship to cramped. The 305 also has a good-size sink which goes a long way towards domestic bliss, as does a reasonable food preparation area and how easy it was to clean the glass topped stove as we found after spilling a drink on it. Wardrobe and cupboard space is good, given that the boat is clearly not intended for global circumnavigations, as is the size of the refrigerator and microwave. A genset, or an inverter, to operate 240V appliances onboard are options not fitted to our test boat, which relied on the availability of shore power. As it would to operate the optional reverse-cycle air-conditioning if fitted.

Obviously the availability, and indeed the desirability, of a marina and shore power in any potential owner's backyard will dictate your choice of options. The head and shower in the Bayliner 305 are another part of essential living space that scored big points from the team. We've seen smaller heads in much bigger boats and were also impressed by the practicality of the porthole to vent steam and a shower curtain to keep the worst of the inevitable spray from drenching the 'loo seat. Hot and cold water are on tap for the shower and vanity sink. A privacy curtain for the second berth under the bridge deck was a surprising omission on the test boat.

This area was perhaps the only place where the boat's size limitations caught up with it to some extent. It was not that the berth was especially small, but it was the least 'bright and airy' space onboard ' tucked away under the helm as aft berths in bridge deck boats are ' but it did have a sliding window below the upstairs dinette to ventilate it. Upstairs, the Bayliner 305's layout follows the established norm, and distinguishes itself by how well it does so. On day trips, six adults plus a rug rat or two, would be at ease on this boat and all of them could socialise in comfort at the upstairs dinette. The Targa arch rakes well back over this area.

Full storm covers are optional; we kept the shade bimini fitted to our test boat stowed for the sake of the photo shoot, but when it is in place over the helm seating and saloon entry stairs, it provides considerable shading for the dinette. The dinette also converts to a comfy sunlounge if desired. On the portside is a small sink unit and storage locker, while drink holders seemed to be strategically placed everywhere we looked. Steps are moulded into the dash area for access through the opening centre of the windscreen to the cabin top. And speaking of the dash, the test boat lacked any navigation electronics; however, it did have sufficient space available right under the wheel in a big timber panel apparently meant for their siting.

A high bow rail doesn't spoil the boat's lines and adds security for anyone going forward along the sides. Aft there is a big transom door and the moulded transom platform features a folding boarding ladder, which will need habitual checking by the skipper after it's used, because it's out of sight and could easily be left down. If this is the worst thing about the boat, it demonstrates that the Bayliner 305 really doesn't hide any unpleasant surprises at all. It's a well equipped and finished sports cruiser in every respect and if that means it merely delivers everything you might expect of it, that too is what stands it out among its peers.

When driving the Bayliner 305 it takes a few moments to attune yourself to the lightness and responsiveness of the steering and controls. Having sterndrives ' and MerCruiser's excellent Bravo II legs ' and electric/hydraulic trim tabs there is ample trim adjustment. It's an enjoyable boat to drive with a manner under acceleration more like that of a runabout fitted with a big outboard than a middle-size sportcruiser with twin sterndrives.
