Aluminum Boats, Inc. of Crown Point, La., is constructing a 138-foot seagoing yacht, the Kathleen W., for Windridge Yacht Charters, Inc. of Ft. Launderdale, Fla.
The luxury yacht Kathleen W.
will be able to seat 150 diners on the 60-foot by 27-foot second deck. This and the other two levels will be decorated with suede walls and ceilings and complemented by beveled mirrors, gold mylar blinds, and plush carpeting.
The first deck will include a large lounge with European furnishings, bar, disco with dance floor, and fullsize galley. The dance floor, which will be above the engine room, will be lined with lead and overlaid with parquet wood floorings.
Other sound dampening throughout the boat will include vibration isolators, acoustical insulation, lead shielded insulation in the engine room, and extra sound dampeners for the boat's exhaust system which will exit through an open dry stack atop the rear quarter.
The three staterooms below the main deck, one of which is 26 feet by 15 feet, will be furnished with kingsized beds, and marble showers and heads. This level will also have accommodations for four crew members.
The Kathleen W. will be cooled by 25 tons of air conditioning sup- plied by Lemoine Marine Refrigeration Inc., and powered by two Detroit Diesel 1671NA diesel engines supplied by George Engine. Her hull will draw only five feet to navigate the shallow canal depths in the Ft.
Other equipment on the Kathleen W. includes two Columbian Bronze propellers; two Cummins generators, 75 kw each, supplied by Cummins Mid South, Metairie, La.; Twin Disc 518 reduction gears; and Seamaster bowthruster supplied by C. L. Assoc. of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
The complete electronics package was supplied by Rich Electronics of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
Aluminum Boats president Salvador Guarino said the Kathleen W. is the largest boat ever built by Aluminum Boats, Inc., and possibly the largest of its type built in Louisiana.
