1999 Bayliner Ciera 2858 Command Bridge

 with aluminum heavy duty tri axle trailer




A great looking boat with it's rakish flybridge and swept-back radar arch, the Bayliner 2858 Ciera Command Bridge is an inexpensive family cruiser with a large and complete interior. There aren't a lot of 28-foot flybridge models on the market, this Bayliner is a superb choice for anyone looking for a clean, spacious, well laid out family cruiser. Powered by a single Mercruiser 7.4L fuel injected engine, she is economical to run, small enough to fit easily into a slip, yet can still accommodate up to 6 people.
The floor plan includes a private mid-cabin berth below the raised salon settee as well as V-berth forward - weekend accommodations for four adults and a couple of kids. A lower helm is standard, and wraparound cabin windows along with plenty of headroom add considerably to the impression of interior space.
