American Cruise Lines starts construction of third Coastal Cat

American Cruise Lines (ACL), Guilford, Conn., is moving steadily ahead on its Project Blue project that will see it add a series of 241 feet long, 56 feet wide catamaran hulled vessels to its fleet. In total, ACL plans to build a dozen of the 105-guest coastal cats.

Construction of the first two, American Eagle and American Glory, is underway and they are set for delivery in 2023, with American Liberty scheduled to begin cruising in May 2024.
