Following is the text from the Feb 13, 2003 press release on this vessel:


Distinctive New Dinner Cruise Vessel for Southern California


The 135’x32’ dinner cruise vessel ENDLESS DREAMS was recently delivered to Charter Memories, Inc. of Newport Beach , California .  The vessel will be based in Long Beach , California .  Naval Architecture and Marine Design Services were provided byDeJong and Lebet, Inc., Naval Architects of Jacksonville, Florida.  The vessel was built by Keith Marine in Palatka , Florida .


ENDLESS DREAMS is U.S. Coast Guard certified under Subchapter K, with a tonnage of 96-gross tons.  She can carry 500 passengers plus 10 crew on a partially protected route.


The three-deck vessel features a large full length dining room with a raised forward deck dining area on the Main Deck.  The Second Deck is a large function room, which can be set up for weddings, dancing, cocktails, or dining.  The Third Deck level is an open passenger deck with the pilothouse forward.


The hull level is used for a variety of purposes, which allows for the large full length open Main Deck passenger area.  Spacious passenger restrooms are located in the hull aft of the engine room.  Forward of the engine room is a large 700 sq.ft. galley, and a separate storeroom, which includes a 7’x10’ walk-in freezer and an 8’x10’ walk-in cooler.  An elevator is installed for moving food carts from the galley to the dining room, furnished by Concord Elevators.  The large galley, elevator, and walk-in coolers are fairly unique for this size vessel.


The vessel is powered by a pair of Detroit Diesel Series 60 DDEC engines, developing 400 HP @ 1800 RPM.  The engines are coupled to Twin Disc 5114 reverse/reduction gears driving five-bladed Ellis propellers.  The vessel is equipped with a 100 HP Wesmar electric dual prop bowthruster.  The thruster, electric motor, and controls were furnished by D.S. Hull, Inc.


Electric power on the vessel is supplied by two 150kW John Deere generators supplied by C.K. Power.  The main switchboard was furnished by Power Panels, Inc.


The vessel has several unique design features that are the combined efforts of the Owner, Charter Memories, Inc., the on-site Project Manager/Marine Designer Bob Curtis of Rhea Design Development, Costa Mesa , California , and DeJong & Lebet, Inc.  The large aft main Deck windows are constructed with special A-0 class glass, which allows them to face the embarkation area without size or shutter limitations.


The Second Deck features a wide sliding glass and stainless steel partition to open the interior area to the aft exterior deck to take advantage of temperate Southern California weather.  This partition can be closed for bad weather, or for hot weather which could require the air conditioning to be in use.  The Second Deck side windows have continuous glass from forward to aft to create the modern yacht look.


Other features of the vessel include a full bar on each enclosed deck with central beverage system, a large dance floor on the Second Deck, and a Bride's dressing room on the Second Deck.  The aft open deck features a stunning set of port and starboard stairs, with Lucite and stainless steel railings.  Custom stainless steel railings and trim are featured throughout the interior, along with rich wood grain wall coverings.  Custom stainless steel exterior doors are fitted throughout the vessel.  The vessel is equipped with a sprinkler system for added safety.
