Whale Watcher Delivered to Aquarium

Monday, August 23, 1999
Gladding-Hearn Shipbuilding has delivered a new high-speed whale watcher for the New England Aquarium. The 112-ft. Voyager III, designed by Incat Designs, Sydney, Australia, carries 325 passengers, and is powered by two Detroit Diesel 12V2000 engines, turning Hamilton HM461 waterjets via Twin Disc gears. Each engine produces 965 bhp @ 2,100 rpm, reaching speeds of 30 knots when fully loaded. Passengers can view whales from the vessel's three decks and bow pulpits. Voyager III's 30 ft. beam provides for two heated cabins with upholstered seating for 190 passengers, tables, two snack bars and four heads. Open seating is on the second deck, flybridge and along the walk-around side decks.
