Motor Vessel Patrick T. Kennedy

This 52′ vessel was built in 1989, fresh off the deck of USS Carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ithaca Boat Tours has successfully acquired this nautical masterpiece. Nothing short of a perfect “base-vessel-palette” to begin customizing into our very own– a classic Finger Lakes passenger Launch.

Originally designed as the Carrier’s Utility Boat, its boasts a passenger capacity of 146 originally.  We have worked with the USCG and naval architects to dial in an optimal capacity of 49 passengers, thusly providing ample immediate seating or standing room for all passengers on board. This provides us with an additional 20,000 lbs of capacity which will ultimately enable us to move to a fully off-grid solar vessel by 2030. 

Presently available for charters up to 49, we recommend shorter duration charters of no more than 2 hrs, we are targeting early July for the addition of a fully enclosed and private restroom space. By August, we will have the full length 8′ hard-top roof and additional seating and standing spaces.
