The 75' Blank Check was christened and delivered to her owners in early April. A product of over 68,000 man-hours and nearly 28 months of labor, she will be spending much of her time at southern latitudes. Her early delivery accommodated her debut in this year's Custom Shootout in Abaco, Bahamas.

Blank Check is powered with MTU 16V2000 M9L engines, each with 2,600 horsepower. Her top speed is 44 knots. Blank Check's cruise (depending on rpm) ranges from 34-37 knots. Standard on all large Bayliss builds are dual 100-amp shore power services, custom built distribution panels, Dometic dual chilled water A/C, dual FCI water makers with dockside purification capabilities, two 1000 lb. per day Dometic ice-makers, Imtra hydraulic bow thrusters and windlass, and a hydraulic emergency pump system that services the three main spaces below deck. For stability, she is outfitted with a Seakeeper 26.

Blank Check's hull is blanketed in Cloud White with a red and gold bootstripe to compliment her gold-foiled transom artwork. Because she will spend most of her life in the tropics, she is outfitted in color-matched faux teak accents on the toe rail and drip molding in order to reduce the crew's brightwork maintenance. Complimenting her flowing lines are a natural teak transom, cockpit bulkhead, salon door and helm pod. Her windshield is black and she is equipped with a full tower.

The flybridge is a custom Bayliss Boatworks center console layout with a three-sided enclosure. Tackle and gear accommodations are plentiful on the flybridge, within both the forward brow and bench seats. The forward benchseat houses two custom stainless-steel refrigerated boxes. Her Rupp outriggers are 4-spreader hydraulics, all heavy-duty in order to hold up to rough conditions and aggressive dredge-style fishing.

In the cockpit, the mezzanine area features custom freezer and refrigerated boxes, a drink box, a large ice bin, and copious amounts of tackle and storage space. There is a built-in livewell supply, as well as adaptability for a fighting chair or rocket launcher.

The interior of Blank Check is warm, inviting, and bold. Upon entering the salon, the four-inch solid teak plank flooring offers a sleek backdrop for the salon and galley. The bold leather-finish Golden Thunder granite installed throughout the upper and lower levels easily compliments the bold teak veneers in the surrounding cabinetry. A custom L-shaped sofa sits alongside three barstools and a starboard sofa in the salon space.

The galley features two SubZero refrigerators, one SubZero freezer, a Wolf speed oven and cooktop, a Hoshizaki ice maker, and a True wine cooler. Before the transition to the lower level, a pantry and day head are located just aft of the companionway stairs a common feature on our larger builds.

Keep an eye out for footage of Blank Check fishing in The Bahamas later this month!
