Our small ships were built with the destination in mind -- each vessel featuring a retractable pilot, a 6 ½ foot draft to cruise shallow waterways and a bow ramp that allows for easy disembarkation on beaches and remote locations. Built by Blount Mariner Inc. Only Blount’s ships can help you explore America’s great waterways, like New York’s Erie Canal, a waterway that many thought could not be navigated by a cruise ship.
