  • A Great Runabout

    Aug 14, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Enough power, stable hull, price, very versatile, good upholstery
    Cons: Outdated motor, visibility/glare issues, steering is a bit hard

    Summary: I bought this boat in 2004 out of necessity. Previously we owned a used '88 Bayliner Capri, but after nearly sinking once, and the next day the motor vaporlocked leaving us stranded. We decided it was new boat time. We had a budget of about $15,000 for a ... read more

    Summary: Ok, so I bought a 2008 bayliner 175 about a month ago. I've been taking it out 3-4 times a week and have put close to 50 hours on it already. I did a bunch of research on which boat to buy. I knew I wanted something that was brand new and was ... read more

  • Bayliner 175

    Jun 27, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great value for the money. Any comparable boat is at least $4,000 more.
    Cons: Fit and finish job is not so good (but expected for the money you paid).

    Summary: Bought ours in the fall of 2006 and very happy with it. We are taking it to the lake nearly every weekend this summer and can’t get enough of it! We learned to water-ski and wakeboard with this boat in no time. The Mercruiser Alpha One 135hp engine ... read more

  • Bayliner 175 Family Fun Pack, A Great Deal

    Apr 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, 135hp, waterproof stereo, room and storage areas, galvanized trailer available, full gauges, light weight.
    Cons: Plywood floors, uninsulated engine cover (noise), relatively thin fiberglass on sides.

    Summary: We used to own a Boston Whaler 150 which was a great boat. Problem was, when we wanted to go up in size, the Whaler line was just too expensive. So, for half the price of a Whaler 17' Montauk, I got a 17.5' Bayliner with the Family Fun Pack (made by ... read more

  • Great all around starter boat

    Mar 15, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Just the right size
    Cons: Needs stereo and maybe a bigger engine

    Summary: If you're just getting into boating and want to see what water activities you like best, the Bayliner 175 may be the choice for you. I downsized from a 23' Wellcraft cuddy to the 175 because I wanted something smaller in terms of hauling, and I wanted to ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive, easy to learn boating skills on, fun family boat.
    Cons: No tilt steering, cramped with 2 adults/3 kids + gear for the day.

    Summary: Good entry-level boat, plenty of power for pulling kids on a tube, and good all around family boat. Not a real high level of fit and finish though. This was our first boat and we since we weren't sure if we'd actually use a boat enough to justify ... read more

    Pros: plenty of power and room for a 17 footer
    Cons: styling would be nicer with a curved windshield and better graphics.

    Summary: I started out looking for a used (near new) 18-19 ft bowrider. Quickly I found out that it would be hard to find anything under 10,000 dollars. Then I was told by a friend to check out the 175 Bayliner which could be had for exactly that price because ... read more
