Our Boat
Just-Asia "N" I, is a 40ft long, 13ft wide edge nailed wooden Cape Island style boat, powered by a 6 cylinder 200hp diesel engine. Top of the Island Boat Tours purchased the vessel in January of 2013 from an elder couple who used her strictly as a pleasure boat. Upon purchase, she was dry docked at Grand Manan Boats ltd., where she underwent an extensive restoration in which she was given the following:

Flybridge like observation deck atop the wheelhouse
Paint work
Several other upgrades
follow us
This transformed her into a passenger vessel compliant to all Transport Canada passenger vessel regulations. Just to name a few Transport Canada safety regulations, the boat is equipped with a 16 passenger life raft, 20 life jackets [14 adult, 6 children]. State of the art navigational electronic including radar, gps, plotters, vhf, depth sounder, and compass. She also is equipped with first aid, flares, life rings and a state of the art fire extinguisher system for the engine room and all other compartments of the vessel.

In short, we spared to expense and effort to ensure that our tours are safe, and we are capable of handling any hazardous situation should one occur.

The boat is painted, design and set up to convey a pleasure boat atmosphere. Our log on the side the boat is a mermaid with a telescope, the mermaid represent imagination and adventure.
