There is a ridiculously huge open space at the front of the boat for sunning, to swim from, etc., and will support sit down dining for 20 for special events, and casual dining / cocktails for 36.

This is a USCG inspected vessel with a COI (Certificate of Inspection) for up to 49 passengers, also called a T-boat. To carry more than 12 passengers, a boat MUST be an inspected vessel and have a COI. Although it can legally carry 49, we have limited the groups to 36 for added comfort and exceptional safety.
