Burger Boat Company has received a contract for the construction of an 89' steel passenger vessel for Wendella Sightseeing in Chicago. Styled after other vessels in Wendella's fleet, this vessel will be used for their signature combined lake and river tour, the Chicago River architecture tour, specialty cruises and private events.
The 89' steel passenger vessel provides an enclosed, climate controlled main deck cabin where guests will find a striking black granite bar and room for socializing. The upper deck provides ample space for guests to mingle and enjoy extraordinary views of Chicago. The vessel is capable of accommodating 150-275 guests.
Designed by Timothy Graul Marine Design, the vessel will be built at Burger's shipyard in Manitowoc, Wis. It will be powered by twin Scania DI13 080M Tier III main engines and will have two Northern Lights generators. The boat is scheduled for a June 2015 delivery date.
