The 2017 surveyor's comments describe this vessel as ABOVE AVERAGE . She has been owned for decades by a professional mariner of very high standards and with access to rigger and woodworking skills, and who has installed many teak custom features.

The 4550 Pilothouse is a Pacific Northwest classic and has been known as a flagship of the Bayliner line. Based on a low deadrise, 15 inch keel and fully cored hull the design permits a range of speeds to permit slow, economical cruising or a fast escape to beat currents or approaching foul weather. This boat is set up for Northwest cruising with Hurricane diesel heating and a 5 KW Westerbeke generator. Consider adding a watermaker for use with the generator if you seek true self-sufficiency in cruising remote coastal locations.

The Bayliner 4550 Pilothouse features an expansive interior with two private staterooms and a convertible office space.

Enter the main salon from the covered aft cockpit area. To port is a built-in L-shaped settee with a space to starboard that includes two chairs and custom counter storage. The interior in this boat has been upgraded from stock cabinetry to feature teak drawers and lockers with inlaid cane surfaces. This boat truly has a beautiful, custom look inside.

Forward of the salon to port is the open galley. It features a full-sized refrigerator and freezer, a four-burner propane stove with oven, a microwave, a deep double sink, and ample storage and counter space. Opposite the galley is a custom counter for a flat screen TV and space for serving drinks and beverages.

Forward of the main cabin are two staircases that lead to accommodations below decks or up to the pilothouse and flybridge. This passageway space is wide and open to allow excellent sight lines for the helmsman in the pilothouse. The pilothouse is very wide with two doors that lead to the deck outboard, an L-shaped pilot berth-seating area, and an expansive helm with full controls, excellent visibility, and a comfortable helm seat. A ladder leads to the flybridge from here, which passes through a glass door which provides additional light inside the pilothouse.

Back through the lower companionway stairs you enter a hallway to the cabins and marine head compartments. First to port is the private guest cabin. This features a queen size berth and ample storage in drawers and lockers. Opposite to starboard is the main marine head compartment. This includes a stall shower and tub in the roomy compartment.

All the way forward is the master stateroom. This is a very large space which includes a unique convertible stateroom-office space on the port aft side which is a design feature of this Bayliner 4550 model. This area has upper and lower single berths and a counter space and can be closed off with a bi-fold teak door for privacy. The current owner uses this as an office space. The master suite includes a king sized bed, ample storage, and a private marine head compartment with stall shower.

The engine room can be accessed through lift-out hatches in the main salon or through large opening hatches in the covered aft cockpit.

The upper flybridge is accessed from the pilothouse. It features ample seating for guests in custom upholstered settees and a large aft deck for a table and chairs or as a boat deck for dinghy storage. This space can also be accessed through an overhead hatch from the covered aft cockpit.

Broker's Comments

VIRTUAL TOUR - VIDEO - 80 TO 100 PHOTOS - FULL SPECS CAN BE VIEWED OF THIS VESSEL!

This Bayliner 4550 has many live aboard features that provide for comfort and a grand quality of life. From the upper boat deck to the aft cockpit, each space shows pride of ownership and versatility of use. It will cruise as a displacement vessel traveling at 8 to 10 knots or get up and plane at 16 . The seller reports that at 10 knots the boat achieves two miles per gallon. It is currently moored in a privately-owned covered live aboard slip which may also be available for sale. Anyone considering a live aboard vessel in this price range should schedule a showing. I do not expect this boat to be on the market very long before it is sold.

These boat details are subject to contract.
