New Model: Bayliss 60 GameBoat

The first GameBoat built by Bayliss Boatworks was delivered to her owners in October 2017.  The Bayliss GameBoat concept was created, simply and directly, to chase fish; it is everything you need, and nothing you don’t. The GameBoat is not a charter boat, nor a production boat. As far as construction, fit, and finish, the GameBoat is no different than Bayliss Boatworks other builds. This is a high-quality, custom-built concept with a confined group of layouts for the owner whose main priority is fishing. By design, these boats have a simple interior layout, and include a concentration on rod and tackle storage, fishing efficiency, low maintenance, and speed.  The Bayliss GameBoat number one was named Mama C and is the product of over 30,000 man-hours and nearly 16 months of labor; she will be spending much of her time at southern latitudes, chasing sailfish.  Bayliss 60 GameBoat profile is unique with no front mask or tower; fishing efficiency and low maintenance are her main priorities. Her Matterhorn White hull pairs effortlessly with her custom blue bottom paint and boot stripe. A faux teak toe rail and half round adds pristine detail to the topside.  The flybridge layout draws from the classic center console style, complete with a faux teak helm pod, full electronics and plenty of storage. Bench seating is built-in on both port and starboard sides, in addition to seating forward of the console. Built-in teaser reels nest above the helm in the bridge hardtop.  The cockpit is adequately stocked with custom refrigeration boxes, plenty of tackle storage, and a large ice bin. The teak deck, cover boards, coming and built-in transom fish box complete the functionality of Mama C’s cockpit.  Bayliss 60 GameBoat interior lacks no detail or functionality. Synthetic flooring keeps with the minimalist maintenance program, and is installed throughout the galley and salon. Every cabinet is faced with horizontally laid sawn grain teak veneer. The galley is clad with quart-zite counter-tops, and fully equipped with a Viking microwave, two-burner Wolf induction cook-top, and two Subzero double-drawer refrigerators. Copious amounts of storage throughout the galley and in the dash make for a travel-ready boat.  Down below, her two stateroom/two head (with tackle room) layout ensures plentiful accommodations; each stateroom features two extra-large bunks and a central companionway.  Above each bunk is a custom cabby for electronics storage and charging, while vast tackle storage is built-in under each bunk. In the forward stateroom, the carpet lifts to reveal covert in-deck storage in the machine tunnel, intended for additional provisioning on longer fishing trips.  Both heads, one forward of the galley, and one forward of the forward stateroom, boast quart-zite counter-tops and sturdy, attractive fixtures. The second day head, located just aft of the galley, ensures easy and quick access during a busy fishing day.  A custom-designed tackle room, complete with a reel locker, perfectly fits the fishing storage needs of the 60 GameBoat owners. The neighboring full-size chest freezer ensures a well-stocked fishing program that is equipped to travel. Bayliss 60 GameBoat is a swift mover. Her top speed is 44 knots, and her cruise can range from an easy 32 knots up to 38 knots.  Bayliss 60 GameBoat is also equipped with a Seakeeper 9.
