Bayliss Boatworks, the well-known Wanchese, North Carolina, sportfish builder, recently splashed its latest creation. Tarheel is a 62-foot, custom flybridge model with twin 1,920-hp MTU diesels and a 46.5-knot top end. Tarheel cruises between 37 and 41 knots.
Built as the company’s first demo boat, Tarheel will tour around the country participating in tournaments. The boat is the product of more than 38,000 man-hours and took 15 months to complete.
You can get a look at her at the following tournaments this summer: Alice Kelly Ladies Only Billfish Tournament, Pirate’s Cove Billfish Tournament and Virginia Beach Billfish Tournament.
