125' Monohull Passenger Vessel

Teknicraft Design has been commissioned to design a 125 foot, 500 passenger Harbour Tour and Event Charter Monohull Vessel for operation in the Puget Sound, Lake Union, and Lake Washington areas for Argosy Cruises which currently operates 8 vessels in the area. Construction will begin in the fall of 2016 at All American Marine in Bellingham Washington.

The boat is appointed with three passenger decks, two of which are enclosed, with the third, Upper Deck open for sightseeing and outdoor enjoyment.  Main and Second Deck Interiors provide built in perimeter seating with the large central areas open to allow versatile seating and table options for differing events.  Large fully equipped Bars & Pantries on each deck, along with a Serving Pantry, and a "Bridal Room" are provided for catering and guest preparation.  A large stores deck with walk in cooler is accessed by service lifts down from the Main Deck for ample storage and ease of loading.  A passenger elevator provides wheelchair accessibility between Main and Second Deck which includes an aft outdoor area including a "balcony" overlooking the stern.

Heavily built skegs and a center keel provide protection for the propellers and the ability to let the boat "dry out" on the bottom which is required due to the tides and shallow water of some of the intended operating areas.

The vessel will be USCG Inspected, Subchapter K for a Lakes, Bays, & Sounds route for 500 passengers.
