Paul Mann 63 Bayliss GameBoat 62

Con­struc­tion is now un­der­way on Hull No. 140 from Paul Mann Cus­tom Boats in Manns Har­bor, North Carolina. The 63-footer will fea­ture a three-state­room/twohead lay­out and twin Cater­pil­lar C32 ACERT en­gines rated at 1,600 hp each. Other notable fea­tures are a 1,700-plus-gal­lon fuel ca­pac­ity, full gal­ley and roomy sa­lon, plus gy­rosta­bi­liz­ers and more. Much of the in­te­rior de­tail is still to be de­ter­mined by the boat’s own­ers and the Paul Mann de­sign team, but look for teak ac­cents on the ex­te­rior and cherry join­ery work in­side. The boat will be home-ported in Sara­sota, Florida, and will travel ex­ten­sively.

“We are very ex­cited and grate­ful to build this new 63-footer in our 30th year,” says Mann. “She will be well-ap­pointed, fully equipped and tour­na­ment ready, but also de­signed for trav­el­ing in com­fort and style to any de­sired des­ti­na­tion for fam­ily fun.”

Mann’s mul­ti­ple-award-win­ning crafts­man­ship is rec­og­nized through­out the ma­rine and wood­work­ing in­dus­tries. Over the past three decades, Paul Mann Cus­tom Boats has evolved from build­ing func­tional, seakindly boats for the North Carolina coast to be­com­ing a true cus­tom boatbuilding in­dus­try leader, cre­at­ing mag­nif­i­cent fish­ing yachts that are at home any­where in the world.
