32’ Bayliner 1995 ‘Avanti’ Command Bridge 3258 “Solana”  $14,000

NOTE: A recent haul out for survey indicated the boat is due for a significant repair.  The transom plates that attach the gimbal housing and stern drives to the transom have been corroding and the corners of the plate reveal the sealing gasket at the transom.  The boat is not leaking seawater into the engine compartment, this problem was only apparent when hauled out.  Unfortunately, this is not uncommon with stern drive designs

We are not going to undertake the repair work.  The estimate by a local MerCruiser marine shop is close to $20,000.  We have reduced the asking price of the boat to $14,000.  After repair costs, her next owner will have brand new machinery and will have paid no more than average sale price for their boat.  We will assist the buyer in making all arrangements with a local boatyard and repair shop, and overseeing the repair work.

A distinctive ‘Euro-style’ design built as their ‘top of the line’ model by a well-known Northwest builder.  The Avanti Command Bridge 3258 has an enormous interior volume, a spacious flybridge for outdoor enjoyment and a fully enclosed aft deck for year ‘round cruising.

Two separate cabins with a queen and a double berth ensure privacy while the head with glass shower enclosure is a nice luxury. The salon has two distinct seating areas allowing conversation at the lower helm as well as the galley and the adjacent dining settee.

Her twin MerCruiser 5.7 main engines are economical and will get you cruising comfortably at 16 kts.

     We are quite selective about the vessels we accept into our program and pursue a very rigorous process before they are listed for sale.  This begins with our preliminary introduction when we meet with the donor to discuss the condition and upkeep of their boat.  Once accepted, each new arrival undergoes a thorough examination, similar to what a marine surveyor will do.  This allows us to prioritize our attention to deferred maintenance and any repairs that may be needed. 

     Over the years we’ve performed just about every kind of marine repair; from simple electrical and plumbing issues to all types of appearance enhancements to even rebuilding engines.  If something is not working right we fix it, simple as that.  We prove that her electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems are correct, safe and functioning properly. By doing all this, we know these boats quite well – top to bottom – and present them fairly and honestly to buyers.  We encourage you to have our boats professionally surveyed as a part of your purchase process; by the time we’ve finished and the boat is advertised here, we are confident you’ll receive a strong report from your surveyor.  

     Thank you for considering PMF boats in your search !
