VESSEL REVIEW: Tio Pepe – Refurbished tourist boat turning heads in Sardinia

A new tourist vessel refurbished by Boschetti in its Cesenatico shipyard is successfully completing the tourist season on Sardinia’s east coast.

Tio Pepe, is a two-deck sightseeing vessel with a wooden hull superstructure that can accommodate 149 passengers.

On the starboard side there is a staircase leading externally up to a sun deck and in the middle a glass door leads to the lounge. The lounge houses a kitchen and bar on the port side and toilets on the starboard side.

Two FPT Cursor diesel engines coupled to a pair of fixed-pitch propellers power the vessel to a cruising speed of 18 knots.
