The result of 18 months and some 38,000-man hours, the GameChanger was the second installment in Bayliss’ GameBoat line. Fishing is the goal of the GameBoat line, with tackle accessibility, storage and ease of washdown included in the design.
The GameChanger incorporates extensive faux teak – including the transom, drip molding, toe rail, helm pod and salon door. The flybridge features a peninsula-style layout: the console is oriented to the port side, with seating to the starboard. Two teaser reels are nested above in the hardtop. The faux teak helm pod is a standout on the console, matching well with the two helm chairs. Ample storage is found in the console, forward brow, and starboard seating; a freshwater washdown connection can be accessed forward of the starboard bench seat.
GameChanger’s cockpit is oriented with her Bayliss Boatworks Delivers 62-foot GameChanger Harrison 41 – A Modern Sportfisher That Tips It Hat to The Classics crew’s needs in mind. The off-center salon door shifts the configuration of the cockpit mezzanine, allowing for a large ice bin, and elongated seating in the upper mezzanine areas. The lower mezzanine level lids open to reveal custom-built stainless bait boxes and storage. In the engine room companionway, there lies ample and tailored storage for heavy dredge tackle.
Custom pocket gaff storage is located in GameChanger’s starboard tackle center. GameChanger’s interior sets herself apart in our GameBoat line. Her owners utilized Bayliss Boat-works’ V.C. layout, where the upper and lower
level layout is completely customizable. The lower level is a three-stateroom/two-head layout, including the quintessential GameBoat tackle room. Beneath the forward master, the carpet lifts to reveal covert storage in the machine tunnel – a strong feature intended for additional provisioning on longer fishing trips.
Starboard of the last companionway step sits the entrance to the tackle room: two bait freezers are oriented between cabinets customized for tackle, dredge reels, and rods. Mechanically, GameChanger is equipped with a pair of MTU M96L 12V engines, each with 1920 horsepower. Her stabilization comes from one Seakeeper 16. Fully loaded, her top speed is 44 knots at 2450 rpm and 192 gallons per hour. Her cruise is an easy 37 knots with a full load, at 2,000 rpm and 142 gallons per hour.
