1974 Uniflite Water Taxis (Commercial 17 Passengers) .... not one but two boats available!!
Boat Type: Passenger Address: St Petersburg (Madeira Beach), FL, US Price: $19,900

Overview



This 1974 Water Taxi was launched in 2001 after conversion. Very economical to run with its diesel power engine (only 1/2 gallon an hour).

A real money maker for full-time Taxi along the inland waterways as well as charter for special events. Vessel seats 16 or 17 passengers with a crew of 1 or 2 according to its' January 2001 USCG Stability Letter. The current 5 year COI is set to expire January 2011. New owner will need to initiate a new 5 year COI and annual inspections with the USCG in their area. Price had been lower accordingly. Also, if the boat or business doesn't require more than 12-13 passengers it maybe setup as single payor charter without a COI.

Great for an existing business or startup. Vessel could also be easy retrofit for another commercial and private purposes.

Owners are very motivated to sell this vessel. This one of a kind type vessel has many possibilities and all offers will be considered. Owner has a second vessel (1982 model) that was in service and it is not currently running this boat requires a total refit. This boat can be included as a packaged deal for an additional cost ($3,900).
