Design patents applied for. A new class of diimer/excursion boat that offers dramatic advantages from every perspective*

The VISTA JUBILEE, Blount Marine's newest entree into the dinner excursion boat market, is in a class by itself. YISTARAMA class—featur ing a low length-to-beam ratio—provides a dramatic restaurant interior o o _ r i ii i • with a compact 114-foot by 39-foot contemporary hull design.

Panoramic views from all three decks enhance

VISTA JUBILEE's already daring, swept-back look.

The unique bow/window configuration and the absence of stanchions, usually found on the first and second decks of boats of similar size, add to the feeling of spaciousness vital to the success of any dinner/ excursion enterprise.

This is truly an "operator's" boat. The VISTA

JUBILEE, due for delivery July 1989, has been con- figured for 400 passengers during the dining mode, a capacity ty pically found only in vessels 30 feet longer.

When in the excursion mode, she holds up to 600 passengers, greatly increasing the profit potential on each run.

Luther Blount, founder, innovative naval architect and shipbuilder of over 40 years, chose to run his new VISTARAMA class vessel with powerful LUGGER engines, purchased from Kelley

Power, Fairhaven, Mass., because they're quiet and provide higher horsepower at lower rpm's, thus reducing fuel consumption.

So if you'd like your dinner/excursion boat to be at the head of its class, have it designed and built by the company that created the dinner boat market.
