3988 Motor Yacht
Length w/ Pulpit:
A stylish boat in her day with a rakish bridge and canted windows, the Bayliner 3988 is a value-priced family cruiser with roomy accommodations and a long list of standard equipment. Shes built on a shallow-deadrise modified-V hull with moderate beam and prop pockets to reduce shaft angles. Inside, the two-stateroom, two-head floorplan is arranged with an island bed forward and a double berth in the small second stateroom that extends below the elevated dinette in the salon. The master head is fitted with a bathtub that provides sitting headroom only since its located beneath the lower helm station. Large salon windows make the interior seem spacious and completely wide open. Additional features include a stylish integral swim platform with shower and transom door, port and starboard cockpit steps, wide side decks, and a comfortable flybridge with seating for six. Most 3988s were delivered with twin Hino or Cummins diesels ranging from 200 to 330 horsepower. Among them, twin 250hp Cummins diesels cruise at 20 knots (low 20s top), and 330hp Cummins diesels cruise in the mid 20s (2728 knots top).
