New Model: Bayliss 68 B11

Launched during the past month of March, custom sportfish yacht builder from Carolina Bayliss presents its 68 feet B11. Titled Uno Mas, B11 stands for the latest hull number to be completed by Bayliss. She is also a build commissioned by a repeated customer, who had his first Bayliss back in 2003 with the 60 feet B2. B11 is also a sistership to the smaller engine powered and three double cabins 2007 launched B8. This latest Bayliss designed by Robert Ullberg offers a four cabin interior with three shower heads. Her main deck is a modern flush deck affair offering an L-shaped saloon settee, a C-shaped dinette, and a galley with two fixed bar stools to outward. The cockpit layout is a true fisherman delight and is of recent mezzanine style. It features a stainless steel grill, freezer, tackle storage, bait box, in-deck ice bin, air-condition, tuna tubes, and three live wells. The flybridge is a center console layout with three helm chairs and a wrap-around seating forward. The bridge also features first class amenities with freezer, refrigerated drink box, grill, and an air-condition. Power is from twin Cats 1925hp. So far we do not have any numbers for the performance reached although the above image does suggest that the Bayliss 68 B11 is fast.
