Cabo PowerCat100 Commercial Catamaran
The Sun Rider 100 operated by Sun Rider Tours in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico, was designed to carry 250 passengers in safety with room to dance, entertain and relax. Used for whale watching, coastal tours, and large-group charters the Sun Rider 100 has been operating since 2008.
Resin-infused cored fiberglass materials are being used in the hull and deck structures to provide significant weight and fuel efficiency benefits compared to the same boat built in aluminum or steel. The big cat will be used for luxury charters out of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. She is designed to carry up to 300 passengers and will have three deck levels. The lower decks in the hulls will house a full galley, storerooms, and bathrooms.
The main deck level will have a large aft deck area complete with barbecue and buffet. Wide steps on each transom lead to secure water access for snorkeling and boarding from docks and dinghies. The saloon on the main deck provides general seating and dining areas, a bar, and entertainment screens.
The foredeck area provides ample space for sun worshipers to lay out and soak up the Mexican sun and scenery. The "skylounge" deck level provides outstanding panoramic views from the dance floor, bar, and lounge areas. Baja Boat Building, a new venture, is set up in a fantastic new facility in La Paz, Mexico near Cabo San Lucas. The Morrelli & Melvin-designed catamaran is their first project. Baja Boat Building and Morrelli & Melvin are actively seeking additional boat building opportunities for the new venture.
