3788 Motor Yacht
Length w/ Pulpit:
The Bayliner 3788 Motor Yacht is an updated version of the original 3788 Motor Yacht (199699) with a fresh appearance and a new two-stateroom interior. Built on a conventional modified-V hull with a relatively flat 10 degrees of transom deadrise, the 3788 is a good-looking boat with more than a hint of European styling. Large cabin windows make the salon seem open and spacious, and the dinette (or optional lower helm station) is elevated to provide headroom for the mid-stateroom beneath. The galley is up, and the master stateroom has a walkaround center berth. Hatches in the salon sole provide access to the engine compartment. Topside, the flybridge accommodates five adults, and a long overhang shades the cockpit. Molded steps (instead of a ladder) make reaching the flybridge easy and safe. Additional features include a swim platform, transom door, opening side windows, foredeck sun pad, and a tub/shower in the head. Standard 310hp MerCruiser gas inboards cruise at 1718 knots. Optional 330hp Cummins diesels cruise the 3788 at 20 knots and reach a top speed of around 25 knots. Note that a revised version of this boat was introduced in 2003 as the Meridian 381 Sedan.
