Plane Boat Tours on the Cosmic Muffin in Fort Lauderdale, Florida


Plane Boats Inc


Welcome aboard the Cosmic Muffin.

While many boats over the years have pridefully claimed to be distinctive and unique, the Cosmic Muffin can truly be considered an historic one-of-a-kind amalgam of a rare aircraft and novel vessel.

This most unusual plane-boat has created its share of interest and amazement over the years and even some car accidents.

No other watercraft, before or since, has ever been constructed from a land-based airplane, especially one with such a rich legacy as an historic aircraft owned by a true legend, Howard Hughes, only to be rediscovered years later as a boat by timeless troubadour Jimmy Buffett, musician, author and avid pilot.

In 1994 Dave Drimmer created Plane Boats, Inc. (PBI) to develop and operate the vessel as an historic/educational attraction that is available for charter and corporate sponsorship as an advertising and promotional medium. With a completely rebuilt hull, interior, new motors and restored cockpit, the Cosmic Muffin is ready for a new life that will make her accessible to the public and travel most anywhere by land and sea.

The plane-boat is currently available for dockside charters at any suitable dock for meetings, parties and gatherings.

The Cosmic Muffin is also a products placement platform that features various merchandise and contributions from participating sponsors.

The Cosmic Muffin is open to the public by appointment and plans are being made to base her at a permanent lcoation. The boat is also available for dockside charters, advertising, television, and movie productions, and corporate sponsorship.

PBI offers plane-boat merchandise.

Other goals include seeking to educate school children and participate in charity fund raising and community service. Plans are for the vessel to operate initially at a local level, then progress to regional and national tours.

Plane Boats is proud to be a partner with Yamaha Outboards that power the vessel with a pair of 50 horsepower four-stroke, high-thrust motors delivering clean, dependable and economical performance. Pettit Marine Paints provides their top-of-the-line SR (slime resistant) bottom paint that is easily applied and gives superior and long lasting hull protection. Marine sanitation equipment features Raritan products that include the excellent Atlantes electric head and the most modern version of the LectraSan treatment system. Boeing has contributed extensive archival and historical documents and photographs that establish the Hughes Stratoliner’s true past.
