The Bayliner 3485 Avanti Express' lean profile suggests a vessel of superior performance and reliability, lots of open seating and sun berths, but barely hints at the surprisingly spacious cabin. Two separate double berths assure complete privacy for extended cruising. The head compartment features a shower, vanity with sink, and marine toilet. Large windows on three sides brighten the salon, where a raised dinette provides comfortable seating for four. The galley includes an alcohol - electric stove, refrigerator, and stainless-steel sink. Handcrafted ash cabinetry and accents complete a bright, airy environment below decks. Topside, the 3485 Avanti becomes an open-air entertainment center, with generous lounge seating and a full enclosure of acrylic weather fabrics. The flush aft cockpit leads through a molded-in transom door to a large transom platform, ideal for swimming, diving, or convenient dock access. A pair of V-drive inboards deliver quiet, dependable power. Bayliner's Avanti line combines dramatic, contemporary styling and leading-edge design with old-world skill and craftsmanship. Manufacturing teams apply leading-edge technology and meticulous hand-crafting to every stage of construction. A crew of technicians subject each new model to extremes of stress, endurance, and punishment to ensure that every Avanti exceeds every expectation. Avanti, the most luxurious cruiser in its class, features all the amenities of home. With its spacious cockpit and seating area, the Avanti is perfect for all-day cruising or entertaining.
