Another delivery of our US Coast Guard certified passenger vessels completed this spring is operating in Juneau, Alaska. The "Aurora Seas" is a 40' triple Yanmar diesel and Hamilton 274 powered build sistered to the previous "Raven's Journey". By design, they are roomy 30 passenger whale watching vessels offering an on board head and small galley area providing passengers airline style seating with small fold down serving trays. Dolphin Jet Boat Tours originally purchased their first Bentz Boat "Big Blue" in 1998, then "Sommer Star" and recently purchased the existing "Orca Odysea" in addition to "Raven's Journey" and "Auroa Seas" making a fine fleet of Bentz Boats safely providing thousands of Juneau visitors a chance to see the local marine wildlife.

Cam StanykI saw this boat in late March when it was being wired. The attention to detail is off the charts, especially in all of the wiring and redundancies they had to build into it.

Michael GardinerThis looks like a very nicely laid out boat, typical of Bentz quality. We supplied HJ322 jets up in Canada for the first John Deere 500HP a side installation on a 37ft water taxi vessel, spectacular performance out of the boat. We were a little concerned with the block weight on the JD motors but once we did our engineering it all came together really well. I heard you are using the HJ274 jet on this one. Which JD motor are you using please?
