Located offsite in Warren, RI call or email for showing appointment. Excellent opportunity for proven cruise business with a specialized vessel set-up for low clearance canals. Blount designed a retractable pilothouse for passage under low bridges in inland waterways. Front patented bow landing ramp allows for beach excursions without utilizing a launch.

Unique Blount designed ventilation system constantly supplies fresh air to each passenger cabin while removing "used air" to the outside. This system feeds fresh conditioned air to every cabin. Therefore passengers breathe 100% fresh air in their cabins. Full commercial galley for all onboard meal prep. Dining hall with full bar. Upper deck serves as an entertaining area. All upper equipment is easily lowered for bridge clearance.

Second Deck Vista View Lounge: A Multi-Functional Public Room usable as a Lounge/Reading Room which can also function as an auditorium with seating for over 98 people for lectures/slide shows.

Blount designed an acoustic "floating deck" between the engine room and main deck cabins for sound attenuation.
