Bayliss Boatworks recently launched its 60-foot Sportfish. Like many North Carolina builders, Captain John Bayliss brings a wealth of boating and fishing knowledge to his Wanchese-based shop, and each boat is carefully tailored to the needs of the owner. Developed for big-game tournament fishing and extended travel to fishing grounds abroad, this 60-footer embodies all the qualities of a first-rate custom sportfisherman. A 34.6-knot cruise and 40-knot top end put distant grounds within reach. From its clean swept sheer to its sleek, raked stem, the 60 has the look of a thoroughbred. It maintains a classic custom look with shapely windows, transom tumblehome and teak accents to define its fine lines. The teak-appointed interior has three large staterooms, two full heads below, and an open salon with L-shaped lounge. The galley features under-counter refrigerators and freezers, a hidden cooktop, a microwave and loads of storage. The 60 is based on a cold-molded, epoxy hull, while decks and the flybridge are epoxy-coated, cored composites. The engine room is impeccably detailed. A pump room houses machinery, including air-conditioning and refrigeration units, watermaker, pumps and 20-kW genset. The cockpit exemplifies fishing efficiency, with tackle storage, chilled fishboxes and a bait freezer set in a popular mezzanine deck. The helm is geared to hold a host of electronics and offers complete fore-and-aft visibility and ample passenger seating.
