|These boats are similar to a typical commuter airplane of like size (Foker, Saab, Gulfstream etc.) The features, electronics, avionics, decor and interior design can vary considerably affecting the cost. Interiors include an aircraft type restroom and luggage compartments and due to the decreased trip time minimal food service is required. The return on investment time on this system is half that of competitive boats EVEN WHEN USING EQUAL FARES AND PRICING. Good docking features coupled with our rapid transit vessel can greatly enhance turnaround time on service and return on investment. Our powered, ADA compatible, docking system can be attached to existing facilities or piers (dimensions specs etc. available for designing marinas). We can move more passengers or goods in reasonable lot sizes in a shorter amount of time which means reduced costs. These are VERY LOW MAINTENANCE VEHICLES.|
