Hi All, Looking for good, bad or indifferent views on the 242. I live in upstate NY and cant find this boat available to look at or test. May be interested in purchasing in the near future. Just bought a 2004 210 classic and already looking to go bigger. Any info helpfull. Thanks

We bought a 1992 2452 new after owning bayliner cuddies of 19 and
16 foot previously. One of the best purchases we ever made.
Actually the other boat we were considering was the 22 foot classsic
cuddy. We still own this boat and do all of our boating in the 1000
Islands region out of Clayton. You won't find a roomier boat in this
size range for the money.

I own a 2452 bought new in 1999. A great boat for the price and I'm very happy with it. I fish in mexican waters and off of San Diego with it and my only wish is for more fuel capacity but I think it would be more than adequate for the average user for this type of boat.

Thanks Paul and Mike, one question, some one told me they think the boat is a little under powered with the 5.0. Is this the engine you guys are running? I was told it is also available with the 5.7 but about $4000.00 more in price

Thanks

Mine has the 5.0 alpha 1, gen 2 outdrive. With 4 or more adults or 2
and a full tank of gas it will struggle some to get on plane. I always
use the trim tabs, which helps quite a bit. With even more on board,
I have a few go down below until we're up. Once on plane, however
there is no problem. The 5.7 would help with the getting on plane,
and actually gets a little better fuel mileage. If the $4,000 is not a
big deal, I'd go with the 5.7. However, if it is, like I said above, the
5.0 has been very capable for us, and we've enjoyed it for 14 years
(and going).

I agree with Paul-If the extra$ isn't too much to deal with, the 5.7 is definitely the way to go. If I had to do it over again that's the way I would go.

I'm struggling with the cost of the 5.7. not sure but for the most part it would be my wife and I so maybe I could live with the smaller engine. Thanks for all the info guys and hope to chat again soon. even if to just tell sea stories or river stories. Thanks again

If you can, get a sea trial before buying. Then you can judge for
yourself whether you could live with the smaller engine.

Hi guys,

I also have a 1992 2452 with the 5.0 engine.  I live in the pacific northwest just south of Seattle.  This boat has work'd great for me.  It has been Halibut fishing in 6 to 10 ft waves and takes them all on great.  One thing to check before you put it in the H20 is the prop.  I just changed mine and it made a big difference.  With a new 13/13 prop it gets up better even with 3 guys in teh boat and 80 gallons of fuel.

I love my 2452 with the 5.7 engine and Bravo 3 outdrive.  I purchased it new in 1999 and it has been a great combination for cruising.  When spending so much money on the boat, trailer, gas, storage etc, I think the extra satisfaction you will get from the bigger engine is more than worth spending more money on it.

Hey y'all. I have an 03 with the 5.7/bII setup and love it. Great boat for fish/cruise and very economical to run if you keep your cruising speed around 3100 rpm. I use my 242 in both fresh and salt water and have found it to be a stable and reliable boat.

Hi all:
I just bought an 02 2452 with the 5.7 engine (has 50 hours on it) and am having it shipped from SC down here to the west coast of FL. She will be rack stored and I'm having the Neutra Salt flushing system from Volvo installed in lieu of having the yard fresh water flush at $15 per. Has anyone used this system.
I fell in love with the classic look and interior room of this boat. Coming back to power after many years on sail boats. So will be back for advise and questions.
Thanks

We looked at over 500 boats 3 summers ago and finally decided on a '95 Bayliner 2452 "Classic".  The main reason was cost as we seemed to have gotten a good deal, but we also kind of liked the look of it.  We do really like it, although it is our first real boat.  We believe that it has the largest cabin space of any boat it's size.  The 2 of us are comfortable spending weekends on board.  We have the 190 HP Merc Cruiser engine and feel it is somewhat underpowered.  With 4 on board it struggles to get on plane.  I still haven't figured out the trim tabs.  Apparently they are operable but I can't tell any difference when I adjust them.  The one thing that I would want next time is on board power for nights in the marina.  I guess that is an option on '95 2452 Bayliners??

Gitfish,
We have the 1992 version of your boat with the same engine. One
of the 1st things I did when I got it new was switch to a 16X16 prop.
It helped when trying to get on plane.

Your trim tabs should be all the way down when getting up on plane.
My boat did not have them and we added them. This makes a world
of difference too. Even with this, with 4 or more people and a full
tank of gas, it will struggle some to get up. Given the roominess of
the boat and the price, we felt the slowness of planing was a tradeoff
we could live with. If money were no object and I were buying it
today, I'd go for the 5.7 motor. As it is we've boated for 17 seasons
and continue to love it.
