Art Anderson Completes Patrol Boat Design Package

Washington-based naval architect Greg Hughes at Art Anderson Associates has completed a 40-ft. (12.1 m) patrol boat contract design package for a private client. The vessel is designed of rugged aluminum, and is equipped with one firefighting engine as well as twin Caterpillar 3176B engines rated at 600 hp each, providing a top speed of 33 knots. The propulsion engines and firefighting engine are identical and interchangeable. The design is unique in that it is designed for both patrol and rescue operations, as well as heavy duty firefighting. The vessel is designed with a flush cockpit hatch over the entire machinery space to facilitate maintainability of the engines. The aft deck is suitable for rescue operations with the deck only 12 inches above the water, and a 6-ft. wide transom door. The vessel is designed for heavy duty pulling and pushing with push knees at the bow, rub rails all around, and a 10,000 lb. safe working load tow bitt, and a 1,000 lb. removable Aframe davit over the transom.

Art Anderson Associates, Bremerton, Wash., provides naval architecture services, as well as marine design, waterborne transit, engineering, and construction management services.
