The new 150-passenger vessel Jean Nicolet was recently launched and delivered by Skipperliner Shipyards, Inc., LaCrosse, Wis., to owners Robert and Marlys Falkner of Bomar Cruise Lines of Sturgeon Bay, Wis.
The vessel, which is currently in Stuart, Fla., for the winter season, is patterned after the combination freight and passenger vessels that operated on the Great Lakes in the late 1800s and early 1900s. She was designed by Timothy Graul Marine Design of Sturgeon Bay.
With an overall length of 65 feet, breadth of 24 feet and draft of 4 feet 8 inches, the Jean Nicolet is powered by two Cummins N855-M marine diesel engines rated at 235 hp each at 1,800 rpm. The engines were supplied by Cummins Great Lakes, Inc., Chippewa Falls, Wis.
Unlike most passenger vessels, the Jean Nicolet will not be operated on a set route. A portion of her Wisconsin 1988 season will be scheduled with bus tours. The tour bus will discharge passengers at one of several locations within the Sturgeon Bay, Green Bay, Door County and Fox River areas. The passengers will then board the Jean Nicolet for point-to-point tours.
The Jean Nicolet has facilities for serving meals and holding corporate meetings.
