A First Look at the Newly Renovated Osprey

I just received these pictures of the newly renovated Osprey which will now be a dedicated Nature Cruise Boat. Rubberized decking has been added to all the outside decks and carpeting in the cabin.

Here is a look at the bow of the newly renovated Osprey. Seating has been added on the upper bow deck and height has been added for safety to the upper deck railing.

Interior cabin: All the bus type seating removed, replaced by padded seats around the perimeter for 47 passengers. A snack bar added at the bow end with a margarita machine I’m told. Small pedestal tables. Certainly a lot more room to move around, but I hope there is enough table space?

2.The upper rear deck is awesome. A lot of room to sit. Nice access from the rear stairway. I think we could easily sit / accommodate 15 or more additional birders up there.

The stern looks great. No more big fish boxes in the way. Larger bench seats have been added and there is a lot more room to move around.

Lavatories: Big improvement and they are air conditioned.
