The Travels of Tug 44

Zephyr - Tour Boat

The tour boat Zephyr is a large diesel catamaran, capable of very fast speeds, my guess is about 30 knots. Seen here after pausing to view the Statue of Liberty, she suddenly accelerates and blows a lot of water out the back. This boat has perhaps the worst wake in the Port of New York, and the captain is utterly oblivious of the damage he leaves behind. Nice boat though ...

Zephyr is owned and operated by Circle Line Cruises.
