I know this is a couple of weeks old, but I wanted to include it in case you missed it. The article also has a picture of the new boat. It looks very nice, but a little plain.
From Buffalo Business First:
The first of the two catamarans that will carry Hornblower Niagara Cruises passengers in spring 2014 has been completed and will soon be transported to its home base Niagara Falls, Ont.
Hike Metal, based in Wheatley, Ont., is constructing the two catamarans for Hornblower Niagara Cruises, the firm that will begin tour boat operations in the lower Niagara Gorge this spring.
