SeaArk Marine, Monticello, Ark., recently built and delivered a 54 ft. passenger boat to Atlantis Marine World.

Riverhead, N.Y. Marine World will use Atlantis Explorer to accommodate more than 70 people for eco-tours on the Peconic River. The two-hour cruise will educate passengers on geological aspects and natural resources of the Long Island area. As part of the excursion.

passengers will be able to disembark on shore for further "hands-on" exploration. The new SeaArk vessel features bench seating for 72 people and two marine heads for passenger convenience.

The pilot area is located just off the bow with a tour guide station across on the port side. A flush deck and "selfbeaching" style bow-loading ramp provide safe and convenient access area for boarding. A color-coordinated overhead canopy protects passengers from the weather.

Constructed of all-welded marine aluminum, the hull is designed with twin sponsons, which offer a stable ride and permit shallow water operations.

Atlantis Explorer is powered by twin 200 hp Yamaha outboard engines mounted on engine brackets, which are extensions of the hull. Other equipment includes a 75-gallon holding tank, 30- gallon freshwater tank, sink with pump, overhead dome lights, life jacket storage boxes, hydraulic steering, lighted compass, digital depth sounder and a PA system with four speakers.
