12 passenger Uninspected Charter over 100 NT vessel with 6 crew; Semi-displacement hull with raised pilothouse
Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic Raised Pilothouse motoryacht currently in service as a 12 Passenger Uninspected Passenger Vessel over 100 Gross tons. (46 USC 33012, 46 CFR Subchapter C) The hull was manufactured by Leclercq Boatworks with completion in 2010. The vessel has a raked stem, medium draft modified V bottom with 8″ lift ledge hard chine, and a transom stern, raked beneath the stern boarding platform. It is powered by twin John Deere 350-450 HP marine diesels and is arranged with five guest cabins and berthage for 5 crew.
This vessel hit a rock last season with it’s Port side propeller. In addition to the propeller, it hit the shaft support. As a result, the prop and prop shaft will need to be replaced. In addition, the reduction gear was destroyed in side as well and will need to be replaced. We are on hold for the repairs as we need to have the rear water tank pulled to get to the top of the shaft support to make sure the supports mounts are not damaged. Once that is known, we can start repairs. There will be some fiberglass work around the rudder and the back deck where the tank has to come out (the hull was never impacted). We also are going to do new motor mounts and run out tests on the motor to ensure there are no issues, but no issues to the motor is expected.
