Southern Comfort is a Bayliner 285 Ciera in almost factory condition. A local broker has said she is the best example of this type of boat that he has ever seen.
Vessel has been lifted on February 18th for maintenance and service. viewing recommended.
This boat will want for nothing for the new purchaser, you will need to just turn the key and go. (supplied with a full fuel tank at the asking price)
UK Tax paid.
Built in 2005.
2007 the engine was replaced under Warranty. 150Hrs currently on the engine, economical 5.7ltr, she is kept in fresh water within Cardiff Bay with some sea use.
We will offer training on all the equipment on board from Cardiff. We have contacts for boat moves to anywhere in the UK and Europe
This is a purchase and go boat suitable for family extended cruising, or just the weekend away.
Viewing highly recommended.

this is NOT OUR boat but the same make and model in motion, bet it puts a smile on your face.
She has had two owners from new.
Many modifications over and above the standard fit.
The 285 sports a stylish profile with clean, fluid lines.
Wood accents complement the helm's easy-to-read, non-glare gauges.
Mealtime is comfortable and convenient at the convertible diner style booth opposite the galley.
The aft-berth offers privacy for two, while providing hanging locker storage in arm's reach. (Rare to find this size boat with a door, mainly curtains) We have had very comfortable week holidays on board.
Enclosed head features sink with vanity and a large shower.
Bring along the pantry. Below-counter cabinets add to the galley's generous storage capacity.
