All American Delivers for NOAA

Monday, March 20, 2006
All American Marine Inc. launched a 56 x 21 ft. catamaran, built under contract for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The high-speed patrol vessel has been assigned to operate in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS) and its Tortugas Ecological Reserve off the Southern coast of Florida. The vessel will serve as a long-range law enforcement patrol boat in the lower Keys. The patrol vessel is owned and maintained by NOAA's National Marine Sanctuary Program in the Florida Keys. Daily vessel operations will be administered by FKNMS law enforcement officers. The boat offers accommodations for four officers and can comfortably endure long patrols. The long distance traveled between home port and the patrol area requires that the vessel operates with extreme fuel efficiency. The patrol craft is powered by twin MTU 8V2000 M92 engines, each delivering 1085 hp at 2450 rpm. The propulsion package includes Hamilton Jet 403 water jets. The vessel has a 42 knot cruise speed in mission condition and can perform at speeds in excess of 44 knots. The Teknicraft designed hull and hydrofoil technology offers peak performance, while maintaining excellent seakeeping ability and high fuel efficiency.
