No-non­sense fisha­bil­ity in a beau­ti­ful Carolina de­sign

Marlin - - RUN&GUN -

The sec­ond hull of Bayliss Boat­works’ new GameBoat se­ries will be GameChanger, a stun­ning 62-footer from the Wanch­ese, North Carolina, builder. The Bayliss GameBoat con­cept was cre­ated with the goal of chas­ing mar­lin and sail­fish as ef­fi­ciently as pos­si­ble. GameChanger’s power will come from a pair of MTU M96L en­gines rated at 1,920 hp each, while faux-teak com­po­nents, in­clud­ing toe rail, tran­som and drip mold­ing, mean eas­ier up­keep and main­te­nance while trav­el­ing to for­eign des­ti­na­tions. A three-state­room/two-head in­te­rior lay­out in­cludes an eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble day head and cav­ernous tackle room, each sit­u­ated just off the main com­pan­ion­way. Other sys­tems will in­clude a sin­gle 20 kW North­ern Lights gen­er­a­tor, a Sea­keeper 16 gy­rosta­bi­lizer, a pair of 1,000-pound-per-day ice mak­ers and a 1,200-gal­lon-per-day wa­ter­maker. “In terms of con­struc­tion, fit and fin­ish, the GameBoat is no dif­fer­ent than other Bayliss boats. This is a high-qual­ity, cus­tom-built con­cept de­signed for own­ers whose main pri­or­ity is fish­ing,” says John Bayliss. “These boats fea­ture cold-molded con­struc­tion, a sim­ple in­te­rior lay­out, big cock­pits and a con­cen­tra­tion on rod and tackle stor­age, low main­te­nance, and speed.” GameChanger will be a wel­come ad­di­tion to an al­ready ro­bust fish­ing pro­gram, and will de­but in early 2019.
