Morrelli and Melvin Teams Up With Knight And Carver
Morrelli and Melvin has joined forces with Knight and Carver Yacht Center to launch a trio of fiberglass vessels, built to USCG and ABS standards, and certified for operations on Exposed Waters.
The hulls have a shape designed for ease of construction and can be built out of various materials. Cruising at speeds from 23 knots to 30 knots allows the operators to reach their destinations in less time.
The company collaborated on a 65-ft.
(19.8-m) fast ferry Fjordland Catamaran, which can carry 49 passengers at 28 knots between Skagway, Haines, and Juneau, Alaska. Built for Alaska Fjordlines, this sleek, smooth power catamaran features comfortable, aircraft-style seating and large windows to provide excellent viewing for all passengers.
The 60-ft. (18.2 m) Charter Cat Lucky Lady has been deployed this summer along the rugged Hawaiian coast, cruising at speeds of 22 knots, carrying up to 49 passengers for whale watching and snorkeling. Built for Kauai Sea Tours, its twin 6125A Lugger diesels each produce 425 hp offering passengers a fast, comfortable ride, and the owner's savings with fuel efficiency.
