BW PICK: BAYLINER CIERA 8

WHAT THE MANUFACTURER SAYS

Step onboard the all-new Ciera 8 to experience an unrivalled big water cuddy dressed in such luxurious fit and finish, you will want to stay on the water for days. A cockpit entertainment centre with a freshwater sink and cooler niche make hosting parties a cinch. And when night falls, chase dreams in the plush forward cabin, which sleeps two and can even be outfitted with an optional Porta Potty.

WHY WE LOVE THIS BOAT

From the moment you step onboard, especially with this particular example of the Ciera 8, she feels luxurious. With the taupe coloured hull offering a soft colour which compliments the flexiteek throughout the cockpit and swim platform and colour matched cockpit seating, this boat really is an affordable luxury.

The cockpit offers versatile seating with an aft bench seat with a moving back rest – face forwards, face aft, or fold down completely to make an aft sunpad.

The port side lounger offers sociable seating for all the friends & family, and the double helm seat offers a flip up bolster for easy manoeuvring of the boat. Just flip up the seat and you can take the helm standing offering more visibility of the boat & surroundings. The physical steering wheel position can be altered with the push of a button!

There is space at the helm to add a GPS if you required, and the dash comes complete with all the gauges you would expect and a digital depth gauge.

This particular model also comes with a bow thruster so you will never be caught off guard!

Step down into the cabin, you are greeted with a wonderfully compact galley to portside with all the features you would require (most of which have never been used!). A large U-shaped seating area with a folding teak table which drops to a double berth when required, an aft double berth with privacy curtain and a head compartment with toilet, sink, shower & mirror.
