The VR5 builds on Bayliner's proven V-bottom bowrider heritage, while adding form AND function. Forward, the boat employs Bayliner's category-leading BeamForward™ design, which carries the full 8 feet of beam further forward in the boat than has been traditionally done. The self-bailing cockpit features Bayliner's new AftAdvantage™ design that increases the aft seating area by extending it to the aft most point of the running surface, then adding the swim platform at the end of the running surface. This keeps the platform apart from the usable interior space, rather than encroaching on it-regardless of whether you choose outboard or sterndrive power. The result is a boat that maximizes space and value like never before.
