The Bayliner flagship, rarely seen in Australia and presented in immaculate condition after a major overhaul following import to Australia by her owner.
Motor yacht Bayliner 4588 ‘TROPIC’ can only be described as the Ultimate Indulgence on the Water’! Her shape is sharp, powerful and without the aft bulk of many similar motor yachts, and she can boast of having been chosen to feature in several action movies, included the James Bond movie ‘Golden Eye’, which if you ask me is quite the cache!
When TROPIC was shipped to Australia, she arrived in 2014 from America. On arrival, she proceeded to have a team of shipwrights, mechanics, electricians, etc. strip everything and start again. The upholstery was fully replaced with top quality leather, only found in the US and which does not stain, even with red wine. The carpets were also removed and replaced with imported $350/m dove grey Mohawk USA of the best quality, which is also treated to be resistant to even the most aggressive stains and spills. The two US Marine (Hino) turbo charged 240HP engines were given a full service including new pumps, new hoses, new wiring, new starter motors, new alternators, etc.
Her cruising electronics were fully replaced with top of the range twin Garmin 12′ screens.
Interior teak trimmings were re-done. Galley appliances, include fridge, stove, microwave.
TV’S (all three) were replaced, light fittings, and most of the wiring, etc.
Offering a huge volume of luxury accommodation, with separate pilot-house, which offers the distinction between a boat and a ship (and which is one of the reason the owner chose this model against other boats where the inside helm is in the main cabin), ‘Tropic’ will provide her new owners with all the possible luxuries of a modern apartment on the water. She would make a comfortable live-aboard, offshore fishing boat with her safe aft cockpit and fly-bridge, (or a high end vessel for fishing charter if you felt inclined to turn the yacht into a business), and will make a few people jealous at your local marina.
To begin in the fully re-vamped saloon, which is shaded with tasteful dove grey curtains over Venetian blinds (for privacy and sun protection), is a huge imported white Ultra-leather lounge sitting 8, with opposite settee, side boards and shaded light fittings as well as multiple LED ambiance lights overhead. A carved splash-back divides the saloon from the galley, which is on split level, U shape and furnished with all the gourmet appliances you could think of.
Large oven, grill, 4 burner stove, microwave, full size fridge/freezer, rubbish compactor.
Going down a few steps is the hallway to the cabins, with one double guest cabins to port, with across a guest bathroom complete with shower, sink, mirrors, hanging space and ample storage. A cabinet in the hallway hides a front loading washing machine/dryer (new as well).
Right forward is the master cabin, with a gigantic island bed, side steps, own TV/DVD player and speakers separate from the rest of the boat, ample light fittings for ambiance and two ensuites. The first ensuite is the master bathroom with wash basin, shower and a full size bath behind a glass screen. The third bedroom doubles as a study with writing desk and lounge or two single bunks. All the timber trimmings and paneling (teak) are oiled, which give a lovely warm maritime feel to the Interior.
Going back to the saloon another few steps take you to the bridge, with its two separate external doors leading to the fore-deck, including a large companionway to the fly-bridge.
Because it is quite a long way forward (midships) and separate from the rest of the boat, the steerage offers very good visibility and provides the skipper with his own quarters when steering the boat with many guests on board. A settee can accommodate 4 seated guests in the bridge area, away from traffic and a lovely place to relax and keep the skipper company when under way.
Another steerage is accessed through the companionway onto the fly-bridge, with all electronics relayed as well as another remote control for the anchor winch, spotlight, etc. The area is wide, roomy and furnished with built-in sitting for guests.
An electric crane for lifting the tender on and off the boat is also accessed from the fly-bridge. The radar is mounted well above head height on a GRP arch which compliment the modern look of the boat.
Included in the Sale is a Marina Berth situated at Horizon Shores – 20 mtrs length, leased paid till 2027
