Moose Boats Launches New Design

Friday, April 05, 2002
Moose Boats announced its latest boat design, the S3000, an outboard catamaran, during the Fred Hall Fishing Tackle and Boat Show, March 6 - 10, at the Long Beach Convention Center. With twin Yamaha 225 HP, four-stroke, fuel injected outboards and the catamaran design; the S3000 has a top end speed of 40 knots and a cruise speed of 32 knots. The overall length is 32.5 ft. and weighs approximately 8,800 lbs. dry and holds 300 gallons of fuel, which provides a comfortable 450 mile range. Moose Boats only builds aluminum catamarans. The S3000 is the first outboard fishing boat that takes full advantage of this stable cat design. The all welded aluminum hull makes the S3000 a rugged, all weather boat that can handle the most demanding sea conditions. Getting you out to the fishing grounds and back faster and safer than a conventional mono hull. Moose Boats Introduces its Aluminum Catamaran Multi-Purpose Boats Moose Boats launched the first of its line of new generation welded aluminum power catamarans, the J3200. The company has spent over a year in the design of the J3200. Conception began with a two-ft. scale model of the vessel to study the hull design and a full-size plywood mock-up of the vessel, enabling the design team to visualize and refine cabin and topside details before going into production. The J3200 is a symmetrical catamaran hull incorporating revolutionary design concepts. The center wave breaker cushions the hull, reducing jarring and pounding. The lifting strakes and reverse chines throw the spray keeping the vessel dry, and enabling the hull to stay on a plane at as low as 12-14 knots. The J3200 is smooth riding, stable, competent and fast. One of the most prominent features of the Moose J3200is its generous walk around deck plan. As a working platform for sport or commercial fishing, the side decks offer a protected pathway to the fore deck. Inside the fully welded aluminum cabin, the main helm station offers 360-degree visibility through large forward leaning windows, and a thoughtful ergonomic layout. Helm and companion seats feature a rubber cushion suspension system and are covered with stylish durable ballistic nylon. The interior has a simple modern feel to it, with basic colors and lightwoods. The layout is straightforward and functional, with a well-equipped galley, standup head and shower, and a fold down dinette with a solid maple table and smartly upholstered cushions.

Scheduled to launch in March this year, the completed boat will be delivered in June and will fit into the "larger" category for this type of vessel. Overall length of the boat, to be named Alec Scott, is 131 ft. with a 77-fts beam and a ten-ft. molded depth. Each of the three legs will be 175 ft., giving it the ability to work in water to depths of 130 ft. Main propulsion engines will be a pair of Cummins KTA38 M0 each producing 850 hp at 1,800 rpm. The boat will be equipped with two cranes - a 100 ton powered by a 530-hp Cummins KTA 19 and a 25-ton powered by a 250-hp Cummins 6CTA. Designed to operate with a crew of six, the vessel will include additional accommodation and mess facilities for up to 30 off-shore workers. Electrical service will be provided by two Cummins 6CTA powered 160 Kw generator sets with a third Cummins 6BTA powered 75 kW emergency generator. Design work on the new lift-boat has been done by Bollinger's staff. It will be fully SOLAS certified, "We wanted this boat built to the highest standards and we felt that this was an important part of that goal," said Seahorse president Phillip Plaisance.
