Bayliner 3870 Motoryacht - main image

1985 Bayliner 3870 Motoryacht

location icon Prince Edward Island
Year 1985
Length 38 ft

The Bayliner 3870 has long been recognized as a good value for those seeking a comfortable diesel cruiser with only about a thousand built. Built on a low deadrise modified-V hull, the key feature of the 3870 was her innovative mid cabin floor plan with a double berth that extends under the salon sole. 

A lower helm was standard in the salon and on the flybridge there’s seating for three. 
Fuel consumption at cruising speed is about a mile per gallon, which makes the 3870 an extremely fuel-efficient boat.
