Bayliss Boatworks Delivers Wave Paver

Bayliss Boatworks is proud to announce the delivery of Wave Paver, a 77′ custom sportfishing yacht. This build holds a distinct combination of unique interior details, sleek exterior lines, and an assured purpose to travel the world and catch fish. Wave Paver was christened in August 2017, ahead of her projected fall delivery date.

Begun in March of 2015, she is the product of over 71,000 man hours, and nearly 30 months of labor. Her owners have run a long-standing and very successful program on the tournament circuit, which the new Wave Paver will mesh seamlessly into.

Wave Paver’s hull is cloaked in the classic Matterhorn White, which pairs easily with a black boot stripe and bottom paint; her long bow deck brings a fresh silhouette to the Bayliss line.

The cockpit is designed with efficiency in mind; extensive refrigeration is the prime feature, especially the in-deck refrigerated fish box. A grill and tackle center, multiple electrical outlets, and tuna tubes round out a blueprint that is crafted with workability as the main attribute.

Wave Paver’s bridge console adds functionality to longer trips at sea with additional refrigeration and a large freezer in the bridge console. Four electric teaser reels sit comfortably above the helm to allow for flexibility in different teaser and dredge configurations.

Granite and marble are paired with a stunning combination of teak, Circassian walnut, and Sapele Pommele wood throughout Wave Paver’s interior. A dayhead and pantry are placed near the galley, adding practicality and function. The built-in custom rod locker rounds out the interior package of a boat that will explore new ground and catch more fish. The four-stateroom, five-head layout features a wraparound crew companionway that allows unique pump room access through the crew stateroom.

Wave Paver’s spacious pump room layout is a product of ultra-detailed systems planning. With extensive travel planned for this build, every system is installed with redundancy from ice makers to chillers. Additional drawer and accessory storage adds strength to an often-cramped space. Both the engine and pump rooms are equipped with fire suppression systems as a supplemental safety measure. She is stabilized with two Seakeepers, an SHD 12 and SHD 7. Her twin MTU M96L 2600 horsepower engines ensure Wave Paver is a swift mover. With top speeds of 43 knots, she evens out to cruise effortlessly at 35 knots.

Bayliss Boatworks has been building custom sportfishing yachts since 2002. Four additional builds are in progress at the company’s facility in Wanchese, including a recently begun 75-footer, a 64′ (named Lor-A-Di), and two GameBoats, sized at 60 and 62 feet.
