WESMAR Commercial Thruster On Board Ferry Wabanaki

Blount boats of Warren, Rhode Island put the final touches on the 399-passenger ferry WABANAKI before delivering her to Casco Bay Lines of Portland Maine in January.  The new ferry joins a fleet of Ferries that depart from Casco Bay Lines ferry terminal on Portland’s waterfront, providing year-round transport to  nearby island residents and tourists.
On the delivery crew was Bob Pelletier, Vice President of Blount Boats and a long-time WESMAR customer. Also on board the 105-foot passenger ferry is a WESMAR 50 HP AC dual prop all stainless steel bow thruster, popular with ferries around the world. Pelletier said: “The WESMAR bow thruster works great, perfect. I was surprised a 50 HP bow thruster could move a 220-ton boat with such ease.”
