Kvichak Marine Industries recently delivered two all-aluminum 32 ft. oil service vessels
to Foss Environmental Vessel Services, of Seattle. With one boat stationed in Seattle and one in San Diego, the Foss vessels are available for hire to perform environmentally safe vessel-to-vessel lube and cleaning, directly at the moorage site
of the customer.
The main customer focus is privately owned yachts and light commercial vessels. Each vessel is equipped to vacuum waste oil, pump new oil and to provide fuel polishing and bilge cleaning.
The vessels also feature a 12.5 ft. beam, 3.3 ft. draft and a fuel capacity of 300 gallons. Power is provided by a single 370 hp Lugger L6108A2 diesel engine with a Twin Disc 5062V marine gear coupled to a 24 in. diameter, 4-blade, stainless steel propeller.
To achieve a high degree of maneuverability, twin rudders were installed, along with a hydraulically powered eight-in. Keypower bowthruster.
