Short season (only 500 hours on mains and generator) 2005 Meridian 490 that’s spent it’s entire life on Long Island NY. She’s never been damaged. Her current owner previously owned a Bayliner 4788 that he had purchased new, so like most 4788 owners who love their boats, but wanted a newer one-the 490 was the answer. The previous owner was an absentee European owner who rarely used her. Having owned a 4788 since 1998 the current knew exactly how to upgrade her to current standards, and to add desired features such as first changing her name to America!
Other upgrades and repairs:
Added bow and stern thrusters
Repaired the Generator base in lazarette, new frame and case (he corrected the latent defect of all the Meridian 490s)
Rebuilt the davit (a latent defect on all 4788s and 490s’
Serviced all the machinery and changed all engine hoses
Added under water lighting
Replaced all the canvas
Added Satellite TV
New ice maker
Let me reiterate: this yacht has never been damaged. She is NOT a Hurricane Sandy vessel. Her current owner knew her before the event, and tried to buy her for two years, but her owner was rather ‘insane’ with his pricing.
Not many Meridian 490s were ever built, and of those few, most stayed on America’s West Coast. Brunswick (their parent company ) focused on the higher profit margin 459 models which sold for over $800k new. They found buyer resistance to asking $582k for a new Meridian 490 when they had been selling Bayliner 4788s (for all practical purposes, the same boat-built by the same people in the same plant) for $395k - $440k( depending on engine and generator size) the previous year.
This 490 represents the newest 490 for sale on the East Coast, and is open to reasonable offers. You can find comps and reviews of other 490s at Meridian Pilothouse dot com.
we apologize for the sparse information and the poor quality of what few photos presented. This is to be corrected ASAP. This is a very nice boat but is presented poorly.
