Papa Bear | 1996 Bayliner 3258 Ciera Command Bridge DX

Brockville, ON, CA


With her rakish lines and aggressive profile, the 3258 Command Bridge was an attractive choice for late 1990's Bayliner buyers looking for a midsize flybridge boat at an affordable price. Like all Bayliner models of her era, she was built on a lightweight, solid fiberglass hull with moderate beam and transom deadrise.

The cabin window treatment is very Eurostyleeasily her most distinctive featureand the smaller cockpit virtually guarantees an exceptionally roomy interior layout. The 3258s salon is split into
two distinct areas. The forward section is a step up from the salon sole with a small settee opposite the helm. In the aft section of the salon, a U-shaped dinette faces the in-line galley with its generous counter space. The entrance to the aft cabin is forward, beneath the windshield, and the head (which has a separate stall shower) is under the lower helm console.

 More Information


As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
