40' Avanti is "A Whole Lotta Boat"
Close your eyes and imagine you’re on your dream express cruiser. Not just a budget practical cruiser either, but your dream cruiser. You’re probably picturing a big cockpit, a comfortable and fully equipped helm station, beautiful lines, a wide beam, the wind in your hair, and all of your favorite people alongside you for the ride. Now think about the price tag on that dream cruiser. Is it a big, heavy, and scary number? What if we told you that you could have that dream cruiser for much less than you thought? What if we told you that the cruiser you’re thinking of might just be a 40’ Avanti 4085 Sunbridge?
Built by Bayliner from 1997 – 1999, the Avanti class of cruisers is a luxurious cut above what some might think of when they hear the term “Bayliner.” Featuring a wide 13’ 5” beam and an LOA of 42’, The 4085 Avanti feels like a lot of boat. The fact of the matter is that she is considered “A whole lotta boat” for the money. The simple fact that these boats can be found for under $100,000 is living proof that your dream boat does not have to break the bank.
Currently offered by California Yacht Sales, this 40’ Bayliner 4085 Avanti Sunbridge for sale in San Diego, California has been meticulously maintained by her current owner. Stepping aboard the portside swim platform, one is greeted by a huge cockpit area leading up to her starboard center double-wide helm seat.
