Boatyard

Bayliss Boatyard services production and custom-built sport fishing yachts from all over the United States and Caribbean.

Every person who worked on our boat treated her like they owned it.

It’s not very often in any business that the employees share the same professionalism, drive and passion as the owner. There is no other boat yard in the world that takes care of their customers or stands behind their work like Bayliss. Plane Simple turned out unbelievable!

Everything at Bayliss Boatyard runs like clockwork.

I received a quote to paint my boat within six hours. When I delivered the boat there was a lift operator waiting there five minutes before my scheduled haul out. I was kept informed of the progress constantly. The job was completed ahead of schedule and the cost came in below the estimate. They say if you do a great job, the customer will refer you to five other people. I was so impressed at the operation I must have told thirty people. Thank you for providing a professional and enjoyable experience.

First class yard with first class employees.

The reason I left Florida and traveled 900 miles to Bayliss Boatyard with a problem in my running gear was that I knew it would be fixed quickly and correctly. And it was. Great experience at a fair price.

Doing what is right over what makes the most money

I’m in business like y’all are and we seem to be a dying breed- we too look after our long-term customers even when we could make more money somewhere else. There don’t seem to be many like us anymore and I just wanted to personally thank you for being an exception in a world that seems to have forgotten to do what is right over what makes the most money.
