Moose Boats Delivers Patrol Vessel

Monday, March 20, 2006
Moose Boats has delivered another Moose M2-37 security and patrol vessel to the Suisun Bay Reserve Fleet, Benicia, Calif. This is the second delivery of a two-boat contract that was awarded through GSA (General Services Administration) by the Department of Transportation, Maritime Administration (MarAd). The Suisun Bay Fleet consists of dry cargo ships, tankers, military auxiliaries and other types of reserve ships in the custody of the MarAd. The Moose M2-37s will be used intensively for security patrol operations up to 16-hours-a-day, seven days per week in the Suisun Bay. The Moose M2-37 is a 37.5 ft. all-aluminum jet powered catamaran with twin Cummins 380 hp turbo diesels and is propelled by Hamilton 292 water jets. This vessel can attain a top speed of over 34 knots, cruise at almost 30 knots, come to a full-speed stop in less than two boat lengths and turn on a dime. Its 21-in. draft will allow all of this to be done in less than 3-ft. of water which is ideal for its patrol application in the Suisun Bay. The M2-37 is designed specifically for patrol, security and escort operations. Moose Boats is building virtually identical vessels for the U.S. Navy, many of which have been deployed to naval bases around the world.
