Balehi Marine Converts
Crewboat Into Party
Charter Yacht 'Celebrity'
Balehi Marine, Inc. of Lacombe,
La., recently converted a former crewboat, the Grandeur, into a yacht for use as a party charter boat in New York Harbor by Peter
Mercurio of Leisure Yacht Sales.
The vessel, renamed the Celebri- ty, was stripped, a new steel super- structure added aft and an alumi- num stateroom installed behind the pilothouse. It was rewired, piped and outfitted to yacht standards.
Extensive steel repairs were neces- sary because the hull had been ex- tensively dented, as happens to crewboats in rough water service when loading crews and supplies up against oil rigs in heavy seas.
A complete new electronic pack- age was installed, consisting of Ray- theon radar and loran, Uniden
VHF, Apelco hailer, Data Marine
Fathometer, and Newmar Phone in- tercom.
The 100-foot-long Celebrity is
USCG certificated for 149 passen- gers. She is powered by two Cater- pillar D-348 engines and two Gener- al Motors generators, one 40 kw and the other 30 kw. Speed is 20 mph.
The vessel, which is now like new, was bought and converted for less than $700,000, which is approxi- mately one-fourth the coast of building a new, identical boat.
