In early February of 2018, Bayliss Boatworks delivered the 64' Lor-A-Di to her owners. A product of 49,900 man hours, Lor-A-Di is built for both fishing and entertaining – ready to accommodate large fishing groups comfortably and with ease.

Lor-A-Di is built the cold-molded way – with a triple layer of planks and 100 percent epoxy resins. The cabin, bridge and all bulkheads are built with Okoume plywood and Core-Cell A-500 foam.

Cosmetically, Lor-A-Di's hull is cloud white, and paired classically with a black and gold boot stripe and bottom paint. She has a full faux teak package – the transom, toe rail, helm pod, drip molding, and salon door are all faux teak.

The flybridge is a custom Bayliss Boatworks center console layout. Further customized, a single enclosure panel surrounds the console, eliminating the need for a full curtain enclosure. The 64' Lor-A-Di features a full tower and buggy top, complete with controls. Tackle and gear accommodation is plentiful on the flybridge, in both the forward brow and bench seat.

Lor-A-Di's cockpit has plenty of space: the mezzanine area features custom Bayliss Boatworks freezer and refrigerator boxes, drink box, a large ice bin, grill, and copious amounts of additional tackle and storage areas. There is a built-in livewell supply, as well as drains for on-deck livewells. A fighting chair and rocket launcher sits in the center, able to accommodate the owners' diverse fishing targets, from tuna to marlin.

The interior is bold and classic. Upon entering the salon, the four-inch teak plank flooring stands out and easily matches the sequenced teak veneers. The true standout is the polished Lemurian blue granite that is installed throughout the upper and lower levels; it brings a quick flash of aqua shine and color to the interior veneer schemes. A custom L-shaped sofa is featured in the salon area, made in-house by Bayliss Boatworks. The salon is further completed with two bar stools and a starboard sofa. A salon coffee table with an expandable leaf converts to a dining table when necessary. The galley features two SubZero fridges, Miele speed oven and cooktop, and a Viking microwave.

Upon entering the lower level, it is clear the owner's intent for ample storage and guest space. The custom tackle room sits just off the companionway; it is constructed with well-designed and spacious cabinets, drawers, and rod storage.

The three stateroom, two-and-a-half head layout provides a total of eight bunks for guests. A small day head is situated off the companionway, a convenient feature for fishing trips. Each head features wall-mount fixtures, along with the same Lemurian blue granite installed in the upper level spaces. The forward stateroom features copious amount of concealed rod storage beneath each bunk, in addition to a large hanging locker for guest storage. Bunk details include USB-charging cubbies and personal lights.

Lor-A-Di is powered with two MTU M96L V12 engines, each with 1920 horsepower. Her top speed is 43 knots. Lor-A-Di's cruise ranges from 32 knots at 1800 rpm (106 gallons per hour), to 37 knots at 2100 rpm (138 gallons per hour). For stability, she is equipped with a Seakeeper 16.
