Project: Bayliss 84 B16

Founded in 2002 custom sportfish boat builder Bayliss is at the moment building its largest ever construction with the 84 feet B16, to be named by her owner Orion.  Work for this new project, which is again a design collaboration with Robert Ullberg started in April 2011. Orion shares the hull shape featuring identical draft and beam with the four feet smaller B15 currently also in construction and scheduled for launch in 2012. Construction is in cold molded way of wood, epoxy and glass fiber in the more modern jig method. The specifications of B16 will include many firsts custom features for Bayliss, from a five stateroom with five head layout, full beam owners cabin, and a navy blue colored hull. The owners stateroom will also feature a six feet walk in closet, office desk, L­‐shaped sofa, and king sized double berth.  The aft deck layout will be a modern mezzanine style with fish box, fridge, freezer, and drink box, while the flybridge is the much appreciated open center console style having a wrap around seat and dining table to fore. Engines are the powerful but lightweight 2600hp MTU which will give a top speed of 40 knots.
