Northport Fire Department Awards Moose Boats with Contract

Thursday, March 09, 2006
Moose Boats, an aluminum boat manufacturer, has been awarded a contract from the Northport Fire Department, Northport, NY for a M2-33 outboard response boat. This is a 33.5 ft. all aluminum catamaran powered by twin 250 hp four-stroke Yamaha outboards. This vessel is designed to attain a top speed of over 37 knots, cruise at approximately 28 knots and will meet NY State Ambulance certification standards.

The mission of this vessel is to provide quick response capabilities for marine emergencies in and around Northport’s harbor. In the past, the department has responded to boat accidents, tanker explosions, helicopter crashes and medical emergencies. In addition to the boat’s fire fighting and water rescue applications, it will be outfitted as a water-borne ambulance with advanced life support capabilities. This vessel will support a scuba team’s dive/recovery efforts, and will be additionally equipped with high powered emergency scene lighting for nighttime operations. Moose Boats also built a water-jet propelled response/fire vessel for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in 2005 and is currently building multiple vessels, of similar design, for the Navy and various law enforcement agencies nation-wide. The Moose Boat design has been chosen by numerous commercial agencies because of its fast and stable catamaran hull coupled with powerful propulsion, which is well suited to meet mission requirements.
