Bayliner makes boats that are good for beginners. They have had many problems in the past, mostly related to the quality of the construction materials and process. More recent models have been manufactured to a higher standard. They are still at the low end of the market in terms of quality.
How fast can a Bayliner go?
On the lake that day, we hit a top speed of 51 mph (at 4,500 rpm) — which is very close to Bayliner’s stated top speed of 52 mph. Cruising speed is approximately 37 mph (at 3,500 rpm). The 205 tracked straight, and there was no hint of listing.

|Range at 37-mph cruising speed||97 miles|
