Notes

Origins with the CHASER 29, a Doug Peterson designed production IOR 1/2 ton racer, but with an entirely different deck and coach roof. Also offered as the BUCCANEER 300 with a fancier interior.
Later, the company built a similar model called the US 29. When Bayliner ended it’s production of sailboats, the molds were passed on to Pearson Yachts where it appeared for a time as the TRITON 30.
Thanks to former Bayliner employee Craig Montague for providing information on this yacht.
