Bayliner 180 OB (2010-)

1 x 90-hp Mercury OptiMax

Brief Summary

Boating is supposed to be a fun pastime, so when your ship finally comes in, you may not be the type of person who wants the challenges of a large, complicated boat while you’re trying to unwind. Sometimes, “keep it simple stupid” (KISS) is a much better mantra for some people when getting on the water – and there is nothing wrong with that! Probably the best example of the simple boating lifestyle is the Bayliner 180 OB. It’s easy to operate, easy to maintain, and easy to store. About the only maintenance items you’ll need are a can of boat polish and a rag. We recently sent Capt. Steve to put the 180 OB to a full test and let us know what he thought.
