Just in time as a barrel of oil went over 100 dollars a barrel today.

I bet the profit margins are pretty tight running a boat like that.

Is that the NIKE II?

I don't know how I missed the last few posts on this thread.

Jason, the last reason Joe Miller would sell a boat is for fuel consumption. He is the kick-ass carrier of New England- I would guess two-hundred head a trip average, at an average of $30 a head, on the conservative side. And that operation is a laugh when you look at his other interests. I would think more along the lines that he wants something more suitable for use in the off-whale season for down south.

Joe, and a few other well-heeled Mass. pass. vessel operators, have ferry operations in Fla., on both coasts now. I'm not sure if that one goes down South, so maybe he wants one that will, or will do it better.

Down South

Those down south Ferries need big capacity and Exceptional speed

Big Fuel bills are the norm

Some of those routes they run are long and they need to cover ground in a hurry

add to the fact that they are all waiting for their holly grail route to open up a where a very fast, very seaworthy high capacity vessel will make somebody a lot of $$

You never know what the big operators are doing or thinking when they move boats around

Capt. Paul...

You did not mention that's 200 people a trip, 2-3 times a day depending on tides to get that craft in/out of Millway Marina. A crowd of 200 is considered light. I personally have never seen it that small and I've spent some time on that boat. Joe is a great guy and he busted his A-- to get that business to where it is today.

Yes, I'm almost certain he averages well over that each trip, but since I don't have hard numbers, I like to be conservative. And yes, he does multiple trips daily, but the issue was the fuel/revenue ratio per trip.

The anti Hijack

Gary- Thats NOT the old Zephyr:
1.different pilot house
2. different dodger and top deck
the Marathon Lady looks to be a much older boat, Now unless there was an Older Breax Zephyr boat that you were asking about, these two are not the same vessel.
