Boatadvice journalist Dominic Wiseman takes a look at the 2015 Bayliner 175, a boat almost singlehandedly responsible for putting more new boat owners on the water than any other. The Bayliner name is synonymous with quality product and simple maintenance all supported by a strong dealer network. They aim this boat squarely at the first time owner or those upgrading from a tinnie to a larger boat.
The Bayliner 175 as tested by boatadvice comes standard with a 135 horsepower 3.0L Mecruiser inboard stern drive engine that delivered brilliant performance on the water. Dominic liked the seating position which is more go cart than boat combined with the torque generated by the engine delivering a top speed of 70 kilometres an hour. The steering was also precise and sure thanks to the standard power steering.
All in all boatadvice like this spacious seventeen foot hull with easy to read dashboard, designed purposefully for those that may not have owned boats before. The simplicity of this hull contradicts the multitude of uses this boat is capable of filling from cruising to water tow sports and even a little fishing.
The full written review of the Bayliner 175 is available on the boatadvice.com.au website. This boat has been around for decades and it’s not surprising it has withstood the test of time and increases competition delivering an affordable, manageable package that can be towed behind the average family sedan.
