Hi, After just over 11 years of owning our Bayliner we have decided to sell as our free time will be limited having recently moved into a 200 year old home that will take all of our spare time …….. ! ‘Time Out’ has been a great , fun boat for us and the family and we will miss the day trips, the overnighters and just the at mooring lunches and teas etc that is so relaxing – an easy to use and upkeep ‘weekender’ size boat. Only averaged around 10 hours per year since 2010 when we bought her, all fresh water use and moorings with only two day single day trips out to the Estuary in 11 years. Bought her from a Marine Brokerage , she needed thousands spent prior to launch, but with a host of new mechanicals/ ancillaries (including a brand new Alpha 1 Gen II z-drive with SS prop etc) and the previous owner having had a full engine rebuild two years earlier in 2008 we knew all would be well, running like new over the next 11 years, with all the correct servicing it has remained in top performance and totally reliable. On September 6th she was lifted out for the ‘Anodes change’, hull jet-wash and inspection (see picture of z-drive just before new anodes were fitted) and re-launched last week. Next lift-out and service not needed before mid-2023 such is the way In freshwater. Have a large file of paperwork and receipts going back over 20 years. ‘Time-Out’ presents well and some years back we had her machine polished which really does make a difference. Key to point out ‘age and usage’ blemishes perhaps seen on other boats too but important to advise ahead of any prospective viewing. The hull does have some scratches and knocks from mooring / docking but cosmetic rather than heavy – if you zoom in on the bow picture you can see the ‘trailer towing eye’ is bent – still serviceable and rigid and like that when we purchased. On the port-side above the rubbing strip there is an area of abrasion to the gel coat approx 7 inches long – result of me leaving the ropes too tight one evening years back and the it rubbed against the mooring. There are three light areas of gel-coat ‘crazing’ – all present when we purchased and not worsened – one a straight line (starboard side approx 6 inches long) and two in spider pattern. Usual light gel-coat crazing on the edge of the bathing platform. In the river Medway floods of Christmas 2013 a mooring post bolt (approx 15m/m diameter) knocked into the gel-coat on port-side rear corner just above the bathing platform – again not a structural issue and was repaired professionally – in certain angles/light one can see the colour match in that area isn’t spot on. From 2012 the Boat Safety Certificate scheme was introduced on the inland river Medway, like a car ‘MOT’ but runs for four years – we have had 3 inspections and certificates for ‘Time-Out’, (in 2012, 2016 and last year) so the current one expires in May 2024. Have on file all reports and certificates to view/keep. ‘Time Out’ had a high specification including ship to shore power, hot and cold water to both the galley basin and the bathing platform shower head – these being fed by both an insulated 25 litre copper tank (Immersion) and from the engine when running up river and moored off-power – very useful. 2 x twin 12v batteries charged by a ‘Sterling Power’ auto charging system when on shore hook-up. Four on-board fire extinguishers all new for last years BSS certificate (engine bay ones automatic). Jabsco fixed sea-toilet with holding tank, pump station outlet and separate Macerator pumps for use when permitted. In summary, ‘Time-Out has been a great boat and with continued servicing over the years will no doubt give the next owners much fun and trouble free boating. If you would like to view please message me by email through eBay. Any prospective sale will be through the Marina Brokerage at our marina and if an agreement to buy is made a 10% deposit would be required at the Marina Office. Viewing is by appointment only as it is a secure facility. Once deposit is lodged then plans for a (lift-out, inspection, survey etc) can be arranged and this is welcomed. Thanks for looking and apologies for the ‘too lengthy description’ !! Kind regards Phil
