Blue View (Bayliss 78′)

In May, Bayliss Boatworks unveiled their most recent 78’ build, Blue View (Hull 24). This build was commissioned by the previous owner of the Bayliss 68’ Blue View (Hull 8), now Singularis. Blue View was a product of over 71,000 man hours and nearly 30 months of labor.

The exterior of Blue View (Bayliss 78’) is outfitted in a full natural teak package; hand-selected teak boards make up her transom, cockpit bulkhead, half round, toe rail, salon door, helm pod, and raised teak flybridge deck.

On the interior, as with each of our builds, we utilized one large log for all veneers in order to ensure grain consistency. Among her interior features, the salon contains two custom BBW air actuated television lifts and an expandable coffee table between the custom u-shaped sofa. 

The walk-in pantry and day head on the upper level provide convenience for owners who enjoy entertaining family; the day head also contains a washer and dryer, concealed by padded panels.

Upon entering Blue View’s lower level, a spacious tackle room sits just off the companionway. Sleek, accessible reel and LP storage showcase the equipment between upper and lower teak cabinetry. 

Focal points in both the VIP and master staterooms are stunning olive ash burl headboards, which pop against the teak veneered walls. The forward walls in each of these rooms conceal custom fabricated BBW air-actuated Pullman bunks for optimal guest accommodation. 

The guest stateroom contains two bunks, with cubbies containing drink holders and USB charging ports, as well as a hanging locker and a separate head. Just off of the main companionway, a teak spiral staircase leads down to the crew stateroom and head, and also provides access to the pump room. 

All surfaces from the bow stem to the transom are glassed, faired, and painted with the same level of finish as her exterior. The air-conditioned pump room contains Dometic dual chilled water A/C, dual FCI water makers with dockside purification capabilities, and our new freshwater cooling system for all mechanical components (recently trademarked for BBW). The spacious engine room contains two 2600HP MTU 16-cylinder engines, two 38kw Northern Lights generators, Imtra hydraulic bow thrusters and windlass, and emergency pump out valving. Her electrical system is driven by two 100 amp shore power cords/transformers. 

Blue View’s top speed was registered at over 44 knots at completion. This top end speed translates to a 38 knot cruise. She’ll be based out of Ponce Inlet, Florida, but you may find her marlin fishing in the Dominican Republic this summer.
