In the world of custom boatbuilding, John Bayliss and his team of craftsmen and designers at Bayliss Boatworks are among the best in the business, crafting some of the finest sport-fishing vessels to ever hit the water. In 2017, Wave Paver* made a splash as the newest 77-footer from the talented team at Bayliss, based in North Carolina's Outer Banks. And while the interior and cockpit details make Wave Paver a work of art, this boat is meant to fish hard, and to win big. To see how the boat came to be, check out the boat build tracking its progress.
