A TOUR company in Pacific Harbour has introduced a revolutionary and innovative 35-feet glass bottom boat to boost operations in the country.

The futuristic investment for Sea Fiji Reefs arrived in Fiji this year and started its first trip to the Beqa lagoon for coral viewing in September.

While a significant amount of money had been invested in this impressive vessel, Sea Fiji Reefs business partner Alex Wienczugow said the boat was a first of its kind in Fiji and the Southern Hemisphere.

"Our vessel has the ability to move quickly and comfortably to a variety of reef locations allowing our guests the opportunity to view a greater selection of the spectacular array and soft coral reefs and colourful marine life situated within the Beqa lagoon complex," Mr Wienczugow said yesterday.

Business partner Cyndee Butcher said the vessel could cater for about 28 passengers and two cabin crew.

"We will be based at the Pearl South Pacific's new marina complex once it is completed," Mrs Butcher said.
