C h a n t i e r Naval Matane of Mantane, Quebec, Canada, recently delivered a 78-passenger day tourist vessel, the Felix-LeClerc, to the Agences Touristiques de Gaspe Group, Gaspe, Quebec.

Designed by Paul-Andre White Ing., Lac Beauport, Quebec, the vessel has a length of 58 feet, breadth of 18 feet 4 inches, and depth of 6 feet 1 inch.

The Felex LeClerk is powered by Caterpillar 3208 engines turning four-blade, 32-inch-diameter propellers, producing 255 bhp at 2,400 rpm. Reduction gears are Twin Disc MG-507 with 2.54:1 ratio. Electronics include a Furuno FMV-603 echo-sounder.

Paul-Andre White Ing. reports that both of the above designs they produced for day-operating tourist vessels have proved very successful and economical to build and operate.
