In March 2006 Bay Ship & Yacht Co. installed two new series 60 Detroit Diesel engines, a new bulbous bow, bow thruster, and a new reinforced rub rail on the dinner boat Monte Carlo owned by Hornblower Yachts.

The initial design for modification work was drawn up by Dejong & Lebet of Jacksonville, Florida. Bay Design and Engineering provided detail design for most of the modification items, including a new engine bed design for proper shaft alignment, and CNC flat patterns for the bulbous bow.

Layout, fabrication and assembly of the bulbous bow was accomplished on the drydock by Bay Ship’s experienced pattern makers and welding crew. Meanwhile, a new bow thruster was fitted and welded in place, and new gensets, shafting, boarding gates, sewage transport system and mast were installed. After undocking, a new reinforced 4” x 8” rub rail design was patterned and installed.

The faster, stronger Monte Carlo is slated to go back into service in mid-April, 2006.
