Tuesday, June 18, 2002
SkipperLiner delivered Romantica III, a new 124 x 25.5 ft. motor yacht, launched at North Bay Marina in La Crosse, Wis., on May 14. The 149-passenger vessel is destined for New York City and will offer dinner cruises, weddings, and private event charters. The vessel will travel 3,535 miles, consume more than 7,000 gallons of fuel, and operate for 30 days straight on its maiden voyage to position it in NYC, a journey that began May 20 in La Crosse, Wis., on the Mississippi River and concluded at Lincoln Harbor on the Hudson River. Romantica III is the largest motor yacht ever built by SkipperLiner, and the third SkipperLiner for the vessels owner. The eight-month project began in September, 2001 with two months of engineering, followed by six months of construction at the shipyard. The interior features hand-crafted cherry wood, custom granite counter tops, and a custom aluminum ceiling. "The new Romantica series combines state-of-the-art shipbuilding, a sleek yacht profile, and a world class interior decor into the industry's best event charter package," says SkipperLiner president Noel Jordan. SkipperLiner plans to build two to three sister vessels per year. Circle 1 on Reader Service Card
