3255 Avanti Sunbridge
Length w/ Pulpit:
Introduced in 1995 and remaining in production for the next four years, the Bayliner 3255 Avanti Sunbridge is a conservative family express whose major attractions were an affordable price and generous cabin accommodations. Built on a lightweight, solid fiberglass hull with a relatively wide beam and moderate transom deadrise, the reverse arch of the 3255 is her most prominent styling feature. The midcabin floorplan is arranged in the conventional manner with double berths fore and aft and a full galley, enclosed head and shower, convertible dinette, and a good-size hanging locker in the salon. (Note that an accordion pocket door separates the forward stateroom from the salon.) On deck, a U-shaped settee (with a removable table) is opposite the helm in the bi-level cockpit. The side decks are narrow and getting around the arch to access the side decks isnt easy. Additional features include a cockpit wet bar, transom door, integral bow pulpit, swim platform, and a foredeck sun pad. Optional 310hp MerCruiser sterndrives cruise the Bayliner 3255 Avanti Sunbridge at 1920 knots and deliver top speeds of around 32 knots.
