Hi there,

Just a few questions for those folks who may have the 3288's.  How do you like the diesel over the gas?  How old are your boats since they quit making these after 1995?  We have a 2452 and are looking to move up.  We live in the pacific northwest and love Puget sound and the San Juans but want to see more.   Any help would be great.  Thanks

We loved our 1989 3288 with 305 gas engines moving up from a 1980 2350 Command Bridge Monterey. Bought it right needing some TLC work in 1999, cherried it out and sold it in 2004 at a $17,000 profit. Wonderful layout, best use of space available of any boat in its' class, good fishing platform and a great 2-3 day island boat. A generator would have been nice, but the stove was propane so we didn't really miss any meals. No regrets, but make sure you're looking at a 3288 and not a 3270.

I have a 1987 3270 with twin gas 305's. If I had the option I would have the diesels. The PNW is loaded with these boats, mostly diesel I believe and as johnhuff above said there is no better boat for space usage. There a very few differences in the 3270/3218 and the 3288. They started in about 1981 with the Explorer model and progressed to the 3270 in 1985 or so and 3288 came out in 1988 and remained until the last run in 1993.

Some problem areas to look for in these boats are stringer rot, dryrot under fuel tanks, water tank leaks. All in all, great boats that retain their value well.

Specs on all the 32's from 81 to 93 are the same:

Length Overall 32' 1" +swim platform and bow pulpit
Length WL 28' 10"
Beam 11' 6"
Draft 2' 11"
Weight 12,500#
Clearance 13' 10"
Fuel 200 Gals.
Water 65/89 gal
Waste 13 gals.
Hull Type Modified V
Deadrise 6 degree

Good luck.......... Doug

I purchased a 1987 3218 MY in 2002. It has WT3 Hino Diesels. It has been a great boat and has run without problems. It had some blistering on the hull when I purchased it and had the bottom sanded and painted. Has been ok since. The Hino perform well and are very economical on fuel. This series of Bayliner boats are a classic models and years. Before buying have a very good surveyor check out the boat and structure for problems. The Hino engines has limited support, but North Harbor Diesel in Anacortes is knowledgable and great.  It is usually just my wife and I on the boat and an occasional 2 other friends or family. I think I would have purchased the next larger boat if  and when I get another boat. 2 reasons: sleeping arrangement for more that 2 is better and the 34-36 length will run smoother over the water than the 32 foot length. I seems the wave length is normally far enough for the 32 foot to push into the front of the next wave at the cruise speed. The longer or faster  boats will ride the wave peaks better and give a more smoother ride at cruise speed. The gas powered bayliners run faster than the diesel, but I would not want a gas boat for safety and cost of operation.  Good Luck
