I don't believe boats your size would have one.
Thanks

Pretty sure waybomb is right. Capacity plates are only on smaller boats, definitely under 25', maybe even smaller.

Yep. no capacity plate on that boat. Its yacht certified, so capacity is at the captains discretion, unless used for commercial passenger purposes.

Funny, I went though that when I got my 3607 a couple decades ago. I wanted to know how many folks I could safely (or legally) put on board in case I got boarded by the USCG or local Sheriff. Of course I could not find one on the boat. The USCG gave me their formula (which really applies to smaller boats) and using that I could have up to 28 folks!!! Figured I would be OK with 8 or 10!!

Love the steering wheel. My last boat had a similar one and I think its what I miss most.
I had the same capacity question last summer :)
