Bayliner VR5 ($26,999)
This is a classic bowrider.
It has been a trusted boat for families for a long time. Older versions of this boat were rather tight-fitting because they only catered to families with children. That means that most of the compartments were small since they intended to only have kids in those areas. However, the VR5 has opened it up a bit.
They’ve since widened the bow and placed a swimming platform a little further back, making more room for an L-shaped bench and a bigger main cockpit.
