Accommodation

This is a day use commercial passenger ferry which does not include sleeping accommodations. It is designed for charter and passenger transportation service.

It is currently certified to carry 149 passengers, and requires a 100 ton rated Captain plus two non-credentialed Deckhands to operate. The boat could possibly be re-certified to carry more passengers, as it was carrying 380 when previously certified.

The vessel has an open two-deck layout with a wheelhouse on the upper deck. The main deck is enclosed and features a covered aft deck and a stairway to the upper deck. This deck is enclosed by a canvas top and side curtains. A wet bar is located in the forward area with a large freezer. The foredeck and wheelhouse can be accessed from this covered space through doors at the forward end.

The main cabin and wheelhouse are heated using a diesel boiler with hydronic heat exchangers and fans in these spaces to provide forced air heat. The wheelhouse also has a single electric heater.

Four marine head compartments are onboard, but these are not currently operational.
