San Francisco tour company Bay Voyager is to add an 11.3 meter RHIB tour boat to its fleet this spring. Designed by Naiad and currently under construction at Armstrong Marine USA’s Port Angeles, Wash., production facility, the 11.3 meter x 4 meter monohull features a semi-open cabin design with full width aft canopy and heavy duty fendering system.
Twin Yamaha 300 hp outboards and 265-gallon fuel capacity give it the range to bring a wealth of points of interest within easy reach.
“This new boat will provide an expanded route with views of Alcatraz, wildlife, and the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges,” said Captain Charles Jennings of Bay Voyager. “It will be one of the most comprehensive and unique tours departing from the waterfront. We’re excited to be working with Armstrong Marine USA to offer this one of a kind experience on a one of a kind vessel.”
With a COI for 28 passengers and two crew, the RHIB more than doubles Bay Voyager’s current passenger capacity. A thoughtfully designed seating arrangement provides unobstructed views throughout. For passenger comfort and convenience, a head compartment is incorporated beneath the console. Additional customizations include a Raymarine navigation/electronics package and LED courtesy lights in the gunwales.
