New Whale Watch Vessel for Juneau Tour Company
Coastwise Corporation provided detail design and construction support for a new whale watching vessel for Juneau Tours and Whale Watch. Out of Juneau, Alaska, the M/V Atlin carries up to 49 passengers for tours on the Inside Passage.
The 48-foot-long by 18-foot-wide aluminum tour boat is a USCG inspected subchapter T passenger vessel certified to carry up to 49 passengers on Exposed Waters. The M/V Atlin is powered by quad 350 horsepower outboard engines and boasts a 500 gallon fuel capacity. This vessel can reach a top speed of 49 mph, cruising at 32 mph with passengers.
This vessel was constructed by Bay Welding of Homer, AK. The Atlin is unique in the fact that it is Alaskan designed, Alaskan built and enjoyed in Southeastern Alaskan waters. Coastwise Corporation was selected for this effort based on our extensive aluminum vessel design knowledge.
