60' Passenger Ferry Catamaran

A 60' power passenger ferry catamaran in composite. 85-passenger "SEA BUS."
This 60' power passenger ferry catamaran design was USCG certified to operate in Saipan as a dinner cruise vessel in protected waters. It would also make a perfect short run passenger ferry or shuttle.  With higher freeboard it could be certified as partially protected.

It is built of foam/glass composite. It is certified for 85-passengers.  The "SEA BUS" has twin 100 hp outboard motors for best cost and maintenance.  Inboard diesels could be easily added.
