The Derek M. Baylis
The Derek M. Baylis (DMB) is a 65-foot auxiliary-powered sailing research vessel that was built to U.S. Coast Guard Subchapter T specifications and launched in 2003. The DMB has a rear deck like a trawler, with yacht-like living quarters, and uses the wind efficiently as its primary source of fuel. The DMB was specifically designed and constructed to provide a safe, comfortable, fast, and environment-friendly platform for marine research and education.
The interior and accommodations of the Baylis are not what you would typically envision a “work boat” to be. Her perfect balance of elegance and functionality will serve you well, whether you need to spend a week offshore to conduct science work or you want to entertain corporate clients with a sail along the beautiful San Francisco waterfront. She can comfortably handle 35 passengers for a 6 hour sail or 10 passengers overnight.
