Endless possibilities with this 50ft Aircat Catamaran
International yacht brokers, Boatshed Newport signing in to tell you about this fantastic value offering. This commercial passenger ferry was custom-built at the cost of approximately two million dollars.
She was used only one short season as a ferry from Providence to Newport, Rhode Island. She is offered at only a fraction of what it cost to build her. She did receive US Coast Guard Certification and has been well cared for while out of service.
She could continue service as a sixty (60) seat passenger ferry or be adapted for other purposes such as a day fishing charter, event charter, harbor master vessel, boatyard ferry, booze cruise, or even a live aboard. The possibilities are endless.
She is powered by twin 900 hp Yanmar engines and flies across calm waters at approximately 50 knots. Her speed is contributed to the twin-engine power, multi-hull construction and jet assist lift in the hulls with auxiliary Yanmar engines and fans that account for less drag. The main engines are housed below deck port and starboard via ladders and are quite impressive indeed. Each engine room is so clean you could wear white without worry! I know because I did when taking her photos.
She has enough life vests for each passenger and also features a spray shelter all around. Why not start your own business with this passenger ferry? At a fraction of what it cost to build her, you will be starting your business with equity!
