31 foot (9 metre) 6 berth luxury 130 HP Diesel Sports Cruiser with marina berth (may take trade in of cheap camper or boat)


Stunning 31 foot sports cruiser yacht, It’s a Bayliner Cierra 2855. Extremely efficient and uses only 3 litres of diesel/HVO an hour.

No offers without viewing. No dreamers. Too many time wasters expecting me to come down from Dublin to bring them out on a free Shannon cruise.

This is a perfect boat if trading up from a smaller older cruiser. I am open to consider taking your old boat off you if you are serious, however trade in price is the original price of €33k which is very fair for this boat. I just need to sell and get cash in for a new business.

A boat of this class could cost up to €200k new now.

It is moored in a private secure Marina Berth in Athlone registered with Waterways Ireland as “The Boffins”.

Just after undertaking a full makeover. It was out of the water all last season in Lakeside Marina yard where it was scrubbed, antifouled and the prop painted by them.

This is a sea and river boat but has been on the Shannon for the last 17 years since being imported from USA.

It has also just had a new 8kw diesel heating system and new 3kw water heater installed along with 2 new large heavy duty marine leisure batteries and solar PV system to help keep the batteries charged. It also has the factory shore power battery charger installed.

Officially sleeps 6. Double bed under the sun deck, another at the front of the boat and the table drops in the galley to form another double bed (although we leave it up all the time).

New concealed black out blinds just installed.

This is a fast boat having a 3.1 litre Isuzu turbo diesel pumping out 130BHP. Very economical. It planes at full tilt and is very easy to manoeuvre on the water. No smoke whatsoever. Engine is 100%. Only 950 hours on this boat from new in 1997. 100 gallon fuel tank. Running perfect. I even just replaced the starter motor and fuel lines to ensure it is running perfectly for new owner.

Also just installed a new Bluetooth stereo, that plays in the cabin and in the sun deck with remote controls on the wheel. Up there there is also a lovely chaise leather lounge and table - perfect for a glass of wine in the evening. Comes with selection of life jackets, ropes and plenty of fenders.

This boat has lots of new sockets just installed for shore power including a double external one on the swim deck. All inside lights have just been upgraded to low wattage led bulbs.

100 gallon water tank, has a toilet / head with sink that empties into an onboard tank that has a macerator pump and can also be pumped out.

Shower on swim deck. Has pull out chrome swim ladder also.

Fully kitted out inside with a new smart tv, chrome cast, 4g router (broadband) and new CCTV security system that speaks a warning to anyone stepping into the boat and has infrared night vision. App on phone lets you see what’s happening live and texts you if anyone steps onboard. See images of it in action in this ad.

Also comes c/w a dehumidifier to keep it dry in winter, air fryer, sandwich toaster, kettle and an alcohol fuelled 2 ring hob.

Has fire extinguishers, blanket, smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm.

This boat is comprehensively insured with Yachtsman for €330 a year. Ready for the season. Jump onboard and head up the Shannon whenever you want. Survey not due for 3 years.

I may take a cheaper boat or campervan as a trade in. What have you got?

The fantastic Marina Berth may be available if you need it. I rent it for €100 a month. You can leave the boat in the water all year round. The Jolly Mariner Marina is very safe and secure. (Walk to bars/restaurants in Athlone or spin the boat 5 minutes down river and tie up outside Sean’s Bar for pints)

The marina has CCTV, security barriers, bins onsite, a caretaker, pay as you go electricity, water taps and EV chargers. It’s only a nice 15 cruise from the marina upon to Lough Ree.

A bill of sale will be provided to the new owner.

@freds1965 plus you get to use it all year round. The marina stays open through winter and you can leave not in water. I use it even when snowing. Winter weekend getaways

Hi there, what engine exactly is fitted?
Is it a marine engine or out of an Izuzu Trooper?
fingalclassics 3 weeks ago
@JayM295 it’s a marinised Isuzu 3.1 turbo diesel intercooled. A very common swap for this boat when people want to get rid of the juicy v8
