Camarc And Kvichak Marine Team Up Again

Thursday, August 23, 2001
Camarc and Kvichak Marine Industries have joined together once again to design and build an all-aluminum 72-ft. (22 m) pilot boat. The new vessel, which is scheduled for a Summer 2002 delivery, is for the Sabine Pilots Association of Groves, Texas, and will operate year-round in the waters of Sabine Pass.

The vessel's power will be supplied by twin Detroit Diesel 16V2000 engines rated for 1,285 bhp each at 2,100 rpm; Hamilton HM651 waterjets were selected for the propulsors. This combination will allow excellent maneuverability, a top speed of 28 knots, and a cruising speed of 26 knots.

The patented popsafe fendering system will be used to protect the vessel's hull while boast and pilot transfers are made. Protection and recovery of the pilots in the event of a man overboard will be enhanced with a combination jet guard and stern platform.

Additional features onboard include a 32 kW Northern Lights generator, 1,600 gallon fuel tank, six Beurteaux pilot seats, day galley and crew accommodations, and a full navigational and communication electronics package.
