Designed in a collaborative effort between Bayliss and naval architect Robert Ullberg, Orion will be its first with a navy blue hull. The vessel's five-stateroom/five-head layout will include Bayliss' first full beam master with a 6-foot walk-in closet, an office desk, an L-shaped sofa and a king-size bunk.

"An 84-foot boat gives us a lot of latitude. We're excited about some of the new features we'll be able to implement in the layout and design of this project," owner John Bayliss said in a statement. "The owner and crew have already provided us with some great new ideas and we're looking forward to the opportunity to build a boat this large that can still fish aggressively."

Bayliss Boatworks has been building custom sportfishing yachts in Wanchese, N.C., since 2002. Orion is the 16th hull for Bayliss.
