Chimera Too is a stunning classic pilothouse design. As Bayliner’s flagship for years, the 4588 later got redesigned as the 4788, but the classic lines and quality finishes had been replaced for more contemporary lines and interiors. Sadly, the underbody was also changed removing the prop wells that greatly protected the props against serious grounding damage and reduced the overall draft. Meridian later purchased the moulds and equipment and the 4588/4788 pilothouse was reborn in 2002 as the 490 Meridian Pilothouse. It was built in the same factory by the same people but under a different name. The price however was much higher with the Meridian name.

Professionally maintained & decorated, Chimera Too is in pristine, turn key condition. This particular Bayliner 4588 has a rare professionally designed and built flybridge hardtop with full enclosure, adding an exceptionally well appointed piloting and comfortable lounging area providing a 360 degree view. Chimera’s beautiful interior has also recently been professionally redesigned and refurbished including the cherry and teak wood accents and all the upholstery.

A MUST SEE for the serious cruiser and mariner looking for the ultimate value/plus turn-key pilothouse. Small trades in similar condition will be considered..sail or power.
