News: Moose Boats Wins U.S. Park Police Contract

Thursday, May 15, 2003

Moose Boats won a contract to deliver a boat for the U.S. Park Police, New York Field Office. The Moose Boats Model 320C is a replacement boat, and it will be used to patrol the Statue of Liberty, Search and Rescue for the JFK Airport, and for Emergency Response for the New York Harbor. The 34.5 ft. all-aluminum boat is a jet powered catamaran featuring twin Cummins 370-hp turbo diesels driving Hamilton 292 water jets. "Last June we visited the MACC in Norfolk, Va., to look for a replacement boat, and we stopped by to look at the Moose Boats," said Sgt. Grant Arthur, U.S. Park Police. "After viewing their models and information in the booth, we set out in the harbor for a demo ride. When we returned to the dock, we knew this was the boat for us."

Arthur continued: "We were looking for a boat that would have the ability to provide a speedy response time, to safely land on shore, and get into shallow waters with ease. Moose Boats met this criteria, and we are very pleased that our contract department had the ease and efficiency to order Moose Boats directly from the GSA price schedule."
