With over 350 built during her decade of production, the Bayliner 4588 Pilothouse has long been recognized as one of the best big-boat buys in the industry. Her classic Pacific Northwest profile is timeless. With production ending in 1993, this 1992 model is a good find.
The 4588 features liveaboard comfort and elegant cruising, including accommodations to sleep six, a spacious salon and a full galley. There are 3 staterooms: The Master is forward with an Island Queen Berth. The Guest stateroom is a nice private space with a double berth. The third stateroom is adjacent to the Master and has bunk beds but converts nicely to a work space with a built-in office desk.
