Allmand Boats builds and sells, factory direct, custom made quality affordable commercial water taxi passenger boats of all sizes and for all applications worldwide.

In Lagos Nigeria, Angola, and Sierra Leone we supply small passenger boats for river crossings. From Mauritius to St. Maarten we build these models for resorts and tour companies to ferry their passengers from island to island, from resort to resort. In some counties it is easier and faster to transport passengers along the seashore than to drive the crude coastal roadways. These water taxis are made more durable than any other builder; designed to endure high traffic our hull bottoms are 18mm thick and on the sides 8mm thick. We also make the same hulls for inland lakes and rivers. Our 32 foot water taxi carries up to 25 passengers with comfort and we ship inside a 40 foot container for easy and low cost shipping. For the next size larger passenger boat we make a 38 foot that carries 30 passengers. From Halifax to Cabo we have built RHIB type water taxi boats for whale watching tour companies who ferry passengers out for whale watching excursions at high speeds. The RHIb type sizes start at 36 feet. All models can be set up for outboards or inboard engines. If necessary for use in U.S. waterways we have C.O.I. water taxis made to order. For C.O.I. models you should know that outboard powered water taxi boats must be made with fire retardant materials and that is an additional cost not associated with inboard diesel models. Consider the convenience of outboards comes with the higher material prices. These regulations are for U.S. and U.S. territorial waters only.
