Year of Formation
Boats Primary Market
Active Families, watersports enthusiasts, towed sportsboat, small-medium sports cruisers.
The Bayliner name first emerged in 1957, when one Orin Edison sold his wooden "Bayliner" boat in Seattle, Washington. The success of this model, and other boats led to his company, AOM (Advanced Outboard Marine) buying the name ‘Bayliner’ from his boat supplier, Al Koffel, for $100.
By 1966, Edson started Puget Plastics to build the first fibreglass Bayliner boats, which by 1968 had expanded production to a large rented hangar in Arlington, Washington to service its almost 100 dealers across the United States. A year later a plot of land was purchased by Puget Plastics in Arlington which would become the manufacturing home of Bayliner for almost 40 years.
Although the late 70's were not the best of times for the marine industry, Bayliner developed and refined its production techniques with such success that it was able to grow further and open new factories during the period. The 1980's proved strong again and the brand was truly established when, in 1986, it became part of the Brunswick Corporation; alongside marine industry giants, such as Mercury.
Bayliner has always strived to give the customer an affordable boat that forfeits gimmicks and luxuries to provide maximum usability and enjoyment on the water. In the early 90's, such was the success of the brand that 25% of all cruisers sold in this period were of the Bayliner brand. Today Bayliner continue to thrive in this competitive market by manufacturing high quality, no-frills boats at affordable prices.

Abandoned Bayliner boat to be used against Mussel Infestation
In Lake County, Northern California a strange tactic is currently being deployed in the battle against the zebra mussel. An abandoned Bayliner pleasure boat is being used as an educational tool in the lakes’ Invasive Species Inspection Program.
The boat was launched into Lake Mead, Nevada on July 5th and will be left in the infested water for four months. The boat will be removed from the lake and the mussels will be exterminated and will pose no further threat.
Due to their size, the zebra mussel easily attaches itself to most things in the water. It can cause critical damage to boats, pipes and other manmade objects, but also other species’ and native mussels of which they easily overpower and kill.
The number of zebra mussels has risen sharply over the past few years. It is estimated that that there are 1.5 trillion adult zebra mussels and 320 trillion baby zebra mussels in Lake Mead – 10 times the amount recorded in 2007. This is solid evidence of the danger posed by these intrusive species.
It is hoped that the old Bayliner will be an important tool in both the training of screeners and inspectors in monitoring invasive species’ and also in combating the rise in zebra mussel numbers.
