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.
The vessel now offers a spacious onboard restroom facility.
Originally commissioned in 1989 as the Carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower Utility Boat, it 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.
