Kvichak Readies to Deliver Catamaran

Friday, November 12, 1999
Kvichak Marine Industries is currently building a 54 ft. catamaran scheduled for a January 2000 delivery to California Fish & Game. Designed by Teknicraft of Auckland, New Zealand, the vessel is one of a trio of catamaran designs being built at the yard's new Seattle facility. To be named Thresher, the partially foil-supported catamaran will be stationed in Dana Point as a Fish and Game Marine Enforcement patrol vessel for Southern California. The all-alminum catamaran, with a beam of 20 ft., weighs about 25 tons fully loaded and is powered by twin CAT 3196 DITA diesel engines. The CAT pair will drive 30-in. stainless steel propellers through Twin Disc 5114A gears at a cruising speed of 26 knots. Deck equipment will include an aft-deck A-frame to deploy and retrieve a customer supplied Hurricane inflatable. The vessel's top speed will clock in at 30 knots.
