Bayliss 62′: Salty Tiger

You never have to apologize for your boat being too fast.

Salty Tiger (Bayliss 62′) is a product of over 38,000 man-hours and nearly 18 months of labor.

Salty Tiger is powered by MTU M96L 12V engines, each with 1,920 horsepower. Her top speed was registered at over 47.5-knots at completion. This top end speed translates to a 41.5-knot cruise at 2150 (80% load). The engine room also contains two 25kw Northern Lights generators, an Imtra hydraulic bow thruster, and emergency pump out valving. The pump shelf contains a Dometic dual-chilled water A/C, an FCI water maker with dockside purification capabilities, and the new Bayliss Boatworks freshwater cooling system for all mechanical components. For stabilization she is equipped with a Seakeeper 9 forward and Seakeeper 6 aft.

Bayliss Boatworks’ most recent build, the 62’ Salty Tiger, was delivered to her owners in July. She was a product of over 38,000 man-hours and nearly 18 months of labor.

Salty Tiger’s custom transom artwork has garnered more attention than any other element on this build. However, she also features a teak cockpit deck and coverboards, with faux teak application on her toe rail, half round, helm pod, and salon door. Her exterior is completed with a custom Imron exterior paint blend called “Salty Gray”, a black mask, and a Palm Beach Towers hardtop.

Salty Tiger is powered by MTU M96L 12V engines, each with 1,920 horsepower. Her top speed was registered at over 47.5-knots at completion. This top end speed translates to a 41.5-knot cruise at 2150 (80% load). The engine room also contains two 25kw Northern Lights generators, an Imtra hydraulic bow thruster, and emergency pump out valving. The pump shelf contains a Dometic dual-chilled water A/C, an FCI water maker with dockside purification capabilities, and the new Bayliss Boatworks freshwater cooling system for all mechanical components. For stabilization she is equipped with a Seakeeper 9 forward and Seakeeper 6 aft.

The cockpit is designed with gear accommodation in mind as well. The mezzanine area features custom freezer and refrigerated boxes, a drink box, a large ice bin, and copious amounts of tackle and storage space. There is a built-in livewell supply, and a chilled, filtered water-spout to conveniently fill water bottles mid-action without leaving the cockpit.

Salty Tiger’s flybridge is a custom Bayliss Boatworks port peninsula layout with a three-sided enclosure. Tackle and gear accommodation are plentiful on the flybridge, within both the forward and starboard bench seats.

The electrical and mechanical layouts for wiring and plumbing are efficiently run to Bayliss Boatworks specifications for ease of maintenance or future additions. Another new feature installed in each of our builds to reduce our impact on the environment- a chilled, filtered drinking water dispenser is conveniently located within the mezzanine.

The interior of Salty Tiger is clean and modern. Upon entering the salon, cork flooring offers a durable alternative to teak planking and carries into the galley and both heads. In the salon, a custom L-shaped sofa and sofa table on the port side sit alongside a smaller starboard sofa. A 49” television is mounted on the forward starboard galley bulkhead. The “Vicostone White Fusion” quartz countertops installed throughout the upper and lower levels compliment the bold teak veneers in the surrounding cabinetry.

The lower level is organized for maximum accommodation and storage. The three-stateroom, two head layout provides five bunks and includes a tackle room with custom rod storage and a washer/dryer. All staterooms are appointed with custom teak veneered hanging lockers, nightstands and ample cabinetry above and below the bunks.
