Boston Whaler Fire/Rescue Boat On Duty At Massport Fire Department

Boston Whaler, Inc. delivered a new 27-foot Challenger fire/rescue boat to the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) Fire Department headquartered at Logan International Airport in Boston.

Built by the Commercial Products Division of Boston Whaler, Inc., Massport's new fire/rescue boat will be used chiefly for fast response to emergencies in the waters surrounding Logan International Airport as well as within Boston Harbor itself. The Massachusetts Port Authority, through its Maritime and Aviation Divisions, is responsible for the operations and maintenance of the Port of Boston, Logan International Airport and the Tobin Bridge.

Acquisition of this new high performance fire/ rescue boat marks the second Boston Whaler selected by the Massport Fire Department for onthe- water fire fighting duty. An earlier 21-foot Boston Whaler has been in service since 1977. In addition to full communications, instrumentation and navigation equipment, Massport's Challenger 27-foot was customized with heavy duty rubbing strakes, stainless steel cutwater, spotlight, bow docking lights, floodlights, cockpit lighting and a thru-hull fitting for future installation of a fire pump.

Massport's 27-foot Challenger is powered with a pair of 200-hp Mercury outboards.
