SEA QUEST (46 ft. Armstrong Catamaran): We custom-designed this vessel for fishing and sightseeing in Seward, Alaska. She was completed in May of 2006. Her hull is heavy-duty aluminum. She is a Coast Guard inspected passenger vessel, licensed to carry 48 passengers, and can comfortably fish 18 people around her extensive lower deck. Her upper-deck is a perfect place to take a break from fishing and enjoy the natural surroundings. In the main cabin, everyone can be seated around five dining tables. Even with a full load of fishermen and fish, she is among the fastest vessels in the Seward fleet of any size. In 2022, she was re-powered with new John Deer engines and has a comfortable cruising speed of around 22 knots and a top speed of around 30 knots. The Sea Quest fishes 18 anglers at once, everyone with their own fishing poles.
