Maine Cat of Bremen, Maine, is pleased to announce that its Maine Cat 41 model has been certified by the U.S. Coast Guard as an inspected "T-Boat" for commercial day-charter service. The Maine Cat 41 has been certified to carry 18 paying passengers and two crew for service on "exposed" routes. This certification enables Maine Cat to build or slightly modify existing Maine Cat 41s to work as inspected commercial vessels under Title 46 CFR - Subchapter T, Parts 175-185 USCG regulations. The president of Maine Cat, Dick Vermeulen, states, "Building a high-quality product has made this certification easier than we expected. With this approval, we've generated an expanding new market and guaranteed our recreational Maine Cat 41 owners a higher resale value, a win-win situation for both Maine Cat and our customers."
