Chesapeake Shipbuilding Launches New Vessel

Gaming and restaurant vessel designer and builder Chesapeake Shipbuilding Corp. has launched Camelot, a 160 ft. (49.5 m) long vessel with a 36-ft. (11-m) beam. The new ship is the third of its class to be launched this year, and an additional three sisterships are still under construction.

These vessels have a certified passenger capacity of 600 and enclosed revenue generating spaces on three decks totaling more than 7,200 sq. ft.

Chesapeake also constructs these vessels in 180 and 200-ft. (55 and 61-m) versions.

The yard features two construction basins, two level construction/ launch side launch systems, plus a ground transfer system and various trade shops.

Camelot is powered by twin Detroit Diesel 12-71 Ns, coupled with Twin Disc 514 C gears, providing a service speed of 13 knots.

Ship's service power is provided by a pair of 190-kW Detroit Diesel 6- 71 generators. Navigation and electronics equipment include Furuno radar, Icom radio and Northstar GPS. The steering system and controls are manufactured by Kobelt and the distribution panel was manufactured by Chesapeake.

The new vessel will be delivered in May, and a sistership is scheduled to be launched in June for completion in August. The launch of Camelot follows the recent completion of a similar 140-ft. (43-m) ship, which was delivered to its New England-based owners last month.
