Townsend Bay Marine Launches New Vessel

Tuesday, February 05, 2002
Townsend Bay Marine LLC (TBM), a yachtbuilding and repair company based in Port Townsend, Washington, announces the launch of Alaskan Grandeur for Glacier Guides, Inc. The 68-ft. (20.7m) composite vessel has a 21.5-ft. (6.5m) beam and is based on a limit seiner hull. Designed by John L. Anderson Yacht Design of Kingston, Wash., to be independent of shore support for periods of up to three months, Alaskan Grandeur emphasizes simplicity and reliability. Used for hunting and fishing charters in Alaskan waters, the vessel will be provisioned at the beginning of the season and will cruise to remote locations without returning to base. Guests are flown in and out by float plane throughout the summer. Accommodations include four double staterooms for guests and two double cabins for crew. "Alaskan Grandeur shows the type of diversity for which our company has become known," noted Paul Zeusche, TBM’s general manager. "In addition to boats of this kind, we have the ability to produce high quality power and sailing yachts as well as specialty vessels, such as the 73-ft. high-speed dive boat delivered last year."
