MetalCraft Kingston Series Vessel Delivered

Thursday, September 02, 1999
MetalCraft Marine Inc.'s latest delivery is a 38-ft. Fisheries Patrol Boat for the Canadian Dept. of Fisheries and Oceans, for deployment on Great Slave Lake and the Mackenzie River. The Kingston series of Deep V, open water vessels has been under construction in MetalCraft's custom shop since 1987, with sizes ranging from 20 to 58 ft. The vessel was designed for a crew of three on missions of up to five days, with a 600 nautical mile range. Propulsion is by twin 230-hp KAD43P stern drives, with a top speed of 33 kots light. Dual station Keikhaefer controls mean the vessel can be operated from the main cabin or the open flybridge, an important consideration when patrolling or performing search and rescue. The vessel measures 38 ft. length overall, with a beam of 12 ft., and draft of 2.3 ft. The hull construction is .25 in. aluminum bottom plate, and .188 in. side plate, with a full-length grounding bar. Fuel capacity is 700 U.S. gal. The vessel also features a large working deck aft, with a drop down tailgate with integral rollers for retrieval of the inflatable tender.
