FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 23, 2019
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. Gypseafeatures 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.
Gypseawill 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’smechanical 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.
