Ready to hit the water!Anyone who's a gambling addict, er, "hobbyist" knows you have to gamble big to win big -- and Bayliner has hit the jackpot with its 225 bowrider. The 22-foot-long boat is now Bayliner's biggest bowrider.Even your friends who abhor the thought of gambling and consider it a big waste of money will have to admit that Bayliner has made a smart gamble, betting that its customers were looking for a larger bowrider to move up to, beyond the company's 205. The company is also betting that a creative layout will attract buyers who are bored with the same-old, same-old. Thrifty, gambling-weary friends of yours will also appreciate what a great value the 225 is. The 225, is one of the least expensive 22-foot bowriders on the market -- and it does so without being a barebones model bereft of important amenities.A 220 hp 5.0L MerCruiser Alpha 1 stern drive is the standard power on the Bayliner 225,With two adults and 1/4 of a tank of fuel on board during our test, we experienced moderate to OK pounding in light chop, and turns were good throughout our ride. Visibility was also quite good.The 225 is rated to carry up to 11 passengers -- or 1,500 pounds -- but we'd suggest a more realistic maximum of eight or nine persons. The boat is constructed of hand-laid fiberglass, and Bayliner includes a limited lifetime warranty on the structural hull.Big-Time SpaceThe 225's 8-foot, 6-inch beam-forward design gives the boat an extremely spacious feel. The bow is so wide that it's almost crescent-shaped, rather than coming to a point. The settee at the bow is more U-shaped than the standard V-shaped settee you find on most bowriders, and a notch in the deck allows a pedestal table to serve the space if you wish. In addition to the four cupholders built into the table, two cupholders are built into each side of the settee.As you stroll back from the bow, you must step through the walk-through windshield, which has a reinforcement rod on each side of the hatch, ensuring the unit's stability. The helm console is to starboard, as you'd expect, with a full set of instrumentation that includes a speedometer, a tachometer, a voltmeter, and fuel, trim, water temperature and oil pressure gauges. Overall, the helm is simple but not unsightly.Step over to the passenger-side console and you start to see where Bayliner has taken some chances with the layout. Instead of a matching bucket seat, like the one that serves the helm console, there are two opposite-facing bench settees that face forward and backward.Bayliner has employed opposite-facing seats in some of its previous models, but those are usually closer to bucket-style seating. The seats found on the 225 are a doublewide version that is almost wide enough to seat two people. The bench seat facing backward butts right up to the L-shaped settee that wraps around the back side of the boat. In effect, this turns the settee into a J-shaped seating area, and it allows you to lean back on the bench as your legs take up one full side of the settee. Moreover, the rear-facing seat can convert to a sunlounger.Storage area is hidden underneath all of the settees, and the pedestal table that serves the bow settee can also be moved back to serve the aft one. There's dedicated storage for the boat's 36-quart cooler under the starboard side of the aft settee, and the large sunpad that runs athwartship can be pulled up for easy access to the engine.The tail end of the 225 is taken up by a swim platform with a transom shower. The platform is connected to the cockpit by a walk-through, and it has a recessed ladder that makes for safer and easier access from the water.She comes with a painted tandem-axle trailer with brakes and a swing-away tongue. A ski tow eye is standard, as are navigation lights, anchor storage, mooring cleats, tilt steering, bow filler cushions and an AM/FM stereo system with two speakers and a CD controller with a plug-in jack and niche for a CD player.In theory, the excellent price of the Bayliner 225 makes it possible for you to actually pay less for this bowrider than you paid for your previous model that was several feet smaller. It would be difficult to ever feel claustrophobic on this spacious, big-time bowrider, and we want to thank Bayliner for creating boats like the 225, because the company is introducing new buyers to boating.Please submit any and ALL offers - your offer may be accepted!
