Third dining yacht joins fleet

CLEARWATER BEACH (FOX 13) -

A new luxury dining yacht has just docked off Clearwater Beach. Yacht Starship dedicated the newest addition to their fleet Wednesday.

The yacht 'Sensation' is the company's third ship. It's 92 feet long and can hold 128 passengers.

The CEO of the company says this ship has a more intimate feel, perfect for small groups, weddings and dancing the night away.

It's also a sign of the improving economy on both sides of the bay, he says.

"We've been weathering some tough times, but I tell you, it's very encouraging to be able to expand again and be able to add more ships to our fleet," offered Troy Manthey. "It's been a very difficult recession for us and Pinellas is just doing a phenomenal job with record tourism out here and now is a great time to expand."

When the ship is fully active, it will create up to 25 new jobs.

The yachts sail nightly in Tampa and Pinellas.
