All American Marine, Inc. built two 72’ vessels for use as commuter ferries on the east coast. The 72’ ferries carry 149 passengers and feature indoor and outdoor seating. Both vessels were designed by Nic de Waal of Teknicraft Design and incorporate many eco-friendly components.
Green features include the propulsion systems consisting of Caterpillar C18 ACERT engines fit with specialized CleanAIR Permit filters to reduce harmful emissions by up to 99%. Noise pollution has been mitigated with acoustic foam insulation and critical grade mufflers. The cabin interiors will be finished with recyclable aluminum honeycomb wall panels and recyclable aluminum ceiling panels with acoustic insulation.
The finished vessels have been coated with a low VOC paint system. Other amenities include ADA-friendly heads, comfortable Beurteaux seating, and bicycle storage racks to encourage as many commuters as possible.
