Broker's Comments

This custom one of a kind 50 foot power Aircat Catamaran was built as a 60 passenger ferry and used only one short season. She is powered by twin diesel Yanmar 900 hp engines which make her fly with a top speed on 50 knots in calm waters. She is a multihull planing configuration and with the hulls air filled by fan and auxilliary Yanmar engines she sits high in the water while underway. Although currently configured as a passenger ferry, there are many commercial adaptive reuse options. She could easily convert to a fishing charter vessel, harbormaster vessel, event boat, booze cruise, live aboard, etc. It cost approx. $2 million to custom build her. What a bargain indeed so do not wait to call on this offering! This is truly a unique offering that is value priced. Why not start a ferry business in 2013? These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
