Each boat is manufactured with plenty of storage space to ensure that your boat’s deck is never cluttered.

When it comes to your boat, Bayliner believes that it should meet your needs and expectations to ensure that you have the best boating experience possible. Bayliner states that they have won seven consecutive Customer Satisfaction Index awards from the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

If you are looking for a boat that is easy to maintain, safe, family-friendly, and includes just what you want without the extra fluff, the 2023 Bayliner M19 may be the right choice for you.

Below, we will review the 2023 Bayliner M19 in-depth to give you a better idea of what to expect when it comes to the interior, accessories, engine, warranty, and pricing.

Interior and Accessories

The interior of the 2023 Bayliner M19 is sure to catch your attention with the beautiful seating. The stitching on the seats is perfect and brings the look of the interior together. At the bow cockpit, you will find plenty of seating. This area can hold up to five passengers or two passengers can stretch out and lounge to catch the sun’s rays. There is an optional table that can be added in right here making this area a social gathering for snacks and drinks. Should you want to sit rear-facing, a center bow cushion and backrest make it possible.

Unlike the other models in the M series from Bayliner, the M19 comes with a helm seat that is plush and includes a flip-up bolster. On the opposite side of the helm seat is a companion seat that is molded right into the deck helping to save space. You do have a removable backrest. If you need additional room, the filler cushion in the footwell can be dropped down to add a bench. You can also add in a filler aft and link the seat with the lounge in the rear.

There is a spacious aft lounge that is convertible. You can slide the backrests around to create sun pads or to change the seating around to accommodate you and your crew.

At the helm seat, there is an equipped dual acrylic windscreen and a full windshield that allows you to open it at the center. You will also find speakers and a waterproof stereo with AM/FM options and Bluetooth. The steering wheel is made from plastic, but despite that, it feels very solid and does not take away from the interior in any way.

While the M19 does not have a galley, it does include a total of nine cupholders and plenty of storage space to keep your coolers and drinks stowed away.


The 2023 Bayliner M19 comes standard with a 90HP EFI 4-stroke Mercury outboard engine. Mercury is known for making some of the best 4-stroke outboards available on the market. The engine itself is powerful and packs a bit of a punch, especially for those who are new to boating. Each engine is made to save on fuel and be as efficient as possible. Due to the construction and lighter weight of this engine, you will find that acceleration and planning on the water are better and faster than with larger and heavier engines.

The 90HP EFI 4-stroke Mercury engine comes with a total of 90 HP. It is a 4-cylinder engine and weighs around 359 pounds. The full throttle range is between 5,000 and 6,000 RPM.

Should you be looking for an engine that offers a bit more power, Bayliner does allow you to upgrade your engine. There are two upgrade options available as follows:

  • Mercury 115 HP 4-stroke EFI outboard engine (additional $1,225)
  • Mercury 115 HP Pro XS outboard engine (additional $1,940)

The M19 comes equipped with a hydraulic steering system that makes steering, handling, and moving around the water easy. The hydraulic steering system is both reliable and durable making it a desired option, especially for those who may be new to boating.
