Each project at Bayliss Boatworks has its own intricacies, making each completely one of a kind, and the company’s newest project is no different. Hull No. 32 is a 75-foot custom, which is designed to accommodate a large crew and maximize fishing efficiency.

The new build will be powered by MTU 16V2000 M96L engines rated at 2,600 hp each for outstanding performance. Optional equipment includes two Kohler 40-kilowatt generators with analog controls, along with two Seakeeper 18s, Furuno Omni sonar, a chilled-water air-conditioning system, FCI watermaker, Bayliss’ proprietary Fresh Flow cooling system for all mechanical components, and the latest in marine electronics.
