Chesapeake S h i p b u i l d i n g of Salisbury, Md., has been awarded a contract with Star Line Corporation of Williamston, Mich., to design and build a full service restaurant vessel. Construction has begun on the 122-foot Star of Sanford which will be placed into service in central Florida late this summer.
The vessel will have a seating capacity of 400 and will be equipped with a full galley capable of preparing all meals onboard.
The Star of Sanford's schedule will feature both luncheon and dinner cruises.
Powered by twin GM Detroit Diesel engines, the vessel will employ the latest innovations and technology to insure passenger comfort. Superb interior appointments and deluxe spaciousness of the Star of Sanford will be enhanced by large observation windows which allow passengers an unobstructed panoramic view of the shoreline during cruises.
Chesapeake Shipbuilding designed this fully air-conditioned vessel for use specifically as a luxurious restaurant vessel. It is the fourth vessel of this type to be built by Chesapeake and is the third passenger ship contract signed by the company in recent weeks. Other vessels currently under construction include a 210- foot coastal cruise ship and a 122-foot excursion vessel.
