In case you missed our live video last Friday at the Viking VIP Show, here’s some exciting news.. Viking Yachts is entering the Outboard Center Console market! President Pat Healey introduces the new line “Valhalla” V-series in 33′, 37′ and 41′.
Bayliss Boatworks is building another 62’ GameBoat, Gypsea. Begun in October of 2018, this project is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2020. She is designed for extended travel and exploration of remote billfish hotspots.
Gypsea is constructed with a custom layout consisting of three staterooms, two heads and a tackle room. The salon level will feature two sofas with easily accessible storage underneath, while the forward galley holds opposing bar tops located aft of the forward galley. Three Sub Zero drawer refrigerators, a four-burner Wolf induction cooktop with down-draft, and a Viking microwave round out the galley appliances.
The lower accommodations are drawn to include a day head and shower located at the base of the companionway steps. A full tackle room with a heavy-duty freezer, rod storage and a stacked washer/dryer will sit across from the day head. Gypsea features a forward master stateroom, with two extra-large bunks on each side, an en-suite head, and storage lockers. Two additional staterooms with upper/lower bunks will be located just aft of the master.
The cockpit is built to be clean and efficient, crafted around Benjamin Franklin’s quote, “a place for everything and everything in its place.” Custom Bayliss Boatworks stainless steel refrigerator boxes will be an integral part of the mezzanine layout. Gaff storage will be hidden, yet easily accessed. All of the essentials will be housed in the custom tackle lockers, located at port and starboard. Grain and color matched teak planking, as well as teak coverboards and coaming, will detail the fishing workspace.
Gypsea will be delivered with a Palm Beach Towers hardtop, extra-large center console on the bridge, white forward cabin windshield and faux teak accents.
Since all Bayliss builds are designed to travel, Gypsea’s mechanical and electrical systems are engineered to be bulletproof and faultless. The engine room and all machinery locations are incredibly accessible and designed for easy maintenance. Each vessel’s air conditioning is provided by a Dometic chilled water A/C system to reduce maintenance intervals and efficiently deliver cool air.
Fuel: 1,850 gallons
Water: 250 gallons
Power: (2) MAN 12V’s @ 1550 hp each
Genset: (2) Northern Lights 25kw
Stabilization: Seakeeper 9
Bayliss Boatworks has been building custom sportfishing yachts in Wanchese since 2002. Four builds are in progress at the company’s facility in Wanchese, including a Bayliss 75’, a 78-footer named Blue View, and two 62’ GameBoats – Gypsea and Tarheel.
For more information on Gypsea and all other builds, past and present, visit our website.
Captains Rick Carney and Jed Galloway provide a backstage pass aboard Weaver’s latest build, the 97′ 18 Reeler. Impressively endowed, this sky bridge sportfisher is ready to embark on a globetrotting sportfishing tour. From the engine room to the sky bridge and into the crew quarters, this is a tour (and a boat) that you won’t want to miss.
In early December, Bayliss Boatworks delivered their second GameBoat project to its’ owner. Sized at 62’ and named GameChanger, she follows the mantra that created our first 60’ GameBoat, Mama C: fishing is the main priority.
In every Bayliss GameBoat, it is mandatory that tackle must have an easily accessible and expansive storage area, the interior must be effortless, end of day washdowns should be quick, and speed ought to be easily attainable.
Begun in May of 2017, GameChanger is a product of more than 38,000 man hours – equaling nearly 18 months of labor. Her charge is to join an already-robust sportfishing program at southern latitudes.
GameChanger’s hull is blanketed in the classic Cloud White hue and is clad with impeccable faux teak compliments punctuating the transom, cabin, and bow deck – a true display of the GameBoat principle that contends maintenance should be manageable. GameChanger’s faux teak details are extensive, and include the transom, drip molding, toe rail, helm pod, and salon door. Her windshield is black, and she is equipped with a full tower.
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 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 are the first to utilize our V.C. layout, where the upper and lower level layout is completely customizable, intended to match a unique sportfishing program’s needs. The lower level began with a blank sheet of paper, where her owner chose a three stateroom/two-head layout, including the quintessential GameBoat tackle room.
The salon and galley are open and classic. An L-shaped sofa fills the port side of the salon upon entry, matched by a small bench sofa to the starboard; the sofa bases are veneered with teak. Solid four-inch teak flooring draws great attention to the galley area, which is split by the starboard oriented dinette area, complete with a solid teak table and TV. All seating areas, from salon to galley, can be lifted to reveal copious storage areas below – for everything from tackle to supplies.
In the cooking area, a large stainless sink is oriented near a Miele two-burner cooktop and microwave. When not in use, the cooktop is easily concealed by a sliding top mechanism, made from quartzite to match the countertop surface. Two SubZero units sit aft, just below the quartzite countertops, which are creamy and lightly colored, providing a strong contrast to the bold teak veneers that are throughout the galley area.
The lower level is organized for maximum accommodation and storage. 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. The dayhead is oriented just across the companionway, complete with plentiful linen storage, attractive fixtures, quartzite countertops, and four-inch teak flooring.
Two of the three staterooms feature bunk beds, as well as expansive hanging lockers; dresser-style drawers are below each bunk. All stateroom cabinet surfaces, from night stands to storage cabinets, are topped with solid teak.
The forward Master stateroom is generously sized; teak details are the main standout, including two full length hanging lockers oriented to the starboard, with a full set of dresser drawers in between. The master head lies forward of the living quarters, matching the fixtures and quartzite in the dayhead. 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.
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.

New Construction Updates From Bayliss Boatworks –
November was a month full of details for our second GameBoat, the 62′ GameChanger.
Upon entering the salon, it’s clear that GameChanger’s final days in Wanchese are upon us. The salon sofas were fit and installed at November’s end, their soft white surface a perfect contrast to the darker, bold veneers in the upper level space. The four-inch teak flooring in the galley received her final top coat this month, adding another layer of shine and protection. The dinette table was installed as well – a solid teak masterpiece, and a brilliant addition to GameChanger’s upper level corner space.
On the lower level, soft goods are in – from padded panels to carpet and mattresses. The final details, though small, are adding much to the quality of the interior. The padded headboard is installed in the master stateroom, adding a punch of color to bold teak cabinetry. Wall paneling is drawing attention to stateroom valences, while mattresses are giving shape to bunks in each stateroom.
Sneak peeks of the galley and companionway on GameChanger
Moving outside, the cockpit is a hub of activity, as it always is in these final days: the teak has been sanded, while final components like the tackle center, halyard tubes, and rod holders have been installed. Earlier in November, our paint crew placed the finishing details on GameChanger’s exterior, with final clear coats on the toe rail, transom, and drip molding. Her boot stripe and bottom paint were applied, too.
GameChanger will be christened on Friday. Look out for final photos, video, and more details!

Gamefisherman News –
For several months, we have only shown bits and pieces of information on the latest NEX GEN series of Gamefisherman’s. In anticipation of the Fort Lauderdale show, we wanted to provide a brief description of what this recent model is all about. The first model to roll off of our assembly line will be a 43 walk around, and will be powered by quad 350 hp outboards. The oversized cockpit is equipped with a custom tackle station designed by our owner. It will be outfitted with Bausch American custom hardtop, carbon fiber outriggers and full air-conditioned helm deck with an isinglass enclosure. The Gamefisherman 43 walk around is thoughtfully designed for sport fishing with two 25 cubic feet in deck fish boxes and a 50 gallon livewell built into the transom. Below deck is a roomy V-berth forward with a large galley containing refrigeration and microwave, separate third bunk aft, spacious head and separate shower. The quad outboard engines are predicted to propel her to a cruise speed of 40 MPH, with a top end approaching 52 MPH.
