Bayliner

Bayliner is the best-selling brand on the water, with a huge line-up of boats that cover a wide range of activities. Their diverse offerings include outboard and stern-drive boats, bowriders, cuddies, cruisers, and deck boats, and includes what Bayliner claims is the “world’s most popular boat”, the 175 Bowrider, which has out-sold every other recreational boat on the market for the past 10 years. Owned by the world’s largest boat-builder (Brunswick), Bayliners have been in production for over five decades. And Bayliner’s size benefits the consumer not only in choice and cost—like many large-volume builders, Bayliner can under-sell most of the competition due to economy of scale—it also means they have a massive dealer network, so finding and servicing their boats is easier than the norm. But large scale does not have to mean low quality; Bayliner is the only fiberglass builder in the Value category of the National Marine Manufacturer’s Association to receive the Customer Satisfaction Index Award for five years running. Receiving this award means Bayliner buyers rated the winning boats at over 90-percent for customer satisfaction. Bayliner currently sells boats in over 100 countries, and has been building boats since 1957. For more information, visit Bayliner Boats.
