Directions In Design
Awarded Casino Boat
Interior Design Contract
Directions In Design, Inc., Ches- terfield, Mo., recently won the inter- ior design contract for the Dubuque
Casino Belle, a new 2,000- passenger casino riverboat that will operate on the Mississippi River out of Du- buque, Iowa.
Robert's River Rides, owner and operator of the $7.5-million vessel, projects a spring 1991 completion.
Patti Shipyard, Pensacola, Fla., is building the riverboat, which will be 385-feet long with a 58-foot beam, and an 11-foot draft.
Jeanine Bequette, vice presi- dent of Directions In Design and head of the company's ship design division, said the interior of the four-deck sidewheeler will be fin- ished in a turn-of-the-century Vic- torian era motif.
The space plan developed by the designer calls for two separate gam- ing casinos on the main deck. The second deck will include two formal dining areas with combined seating for approximately 1,000 people. The multipurpose third deck will feature a 6,000-square-foot theatre for live performances, a children's video ar- cade, and a gift shop. The open fourth deck will be an outdoor ob- servation area.
