Suggested lease rate Protector 28 Targa
Just took possession of a new Protector 28 Targa with twin Verado 300s for use as a fast response/coastal interdiction vessel to be leased on a as needed basis to local government agencies here centrally located at Cape Canaveral. Florida, USA with direct access to the Atlantic Ocean and Intercoastal Waterway. Need an hourly lease rate appropriate to the vessel and wanted to pull from other commercial operators experience.
Vessel has the full "protect & serve" treatment with additional VHF radios, loud hailer and sirens, low profile yellow/red/blue light bar with alley and take down lights, multiple thermal, low light and FLIR cameras, an upgraded Furuno FA-50 AIS ship transponder, gurney supports in the cuddy for two stretchers, three jump seats on the bow, a cuddy HVAC system supported by an inverter and an on board generator. The boat had extensive rewiring to accommodate the new equipment and additional AGM batteries installed. The dual Furuno 12.1MFDs screens and functions are now controlled by dual finger mice at the helm and navigation stations. Full Furuno network with digital radar, digital sounder, Sirius Weather, 3 GPS, backup sounder, heading module, Icom blackbox VHFs all with Command mics. Garmin's latest Verado integrated autopilot has been installed. The covered boathouse with a fast deployment lift has also been completed centrally located on the Indian River with direct access to the Atlantic ocean via Cape Canaveral or Sebastion inlet.
Any idea what we should advertise as a rate for the vessel?
