Moose to Unveil New Boat

Wednesday, December 15, 2004
Moose Boats introduces the M2, an All-Aluminum Catamaran powered by twin 380 hp Cummins turbo diesels and propelled by twin Hamilton water jets. The M2 can attain a top speed of over 35 knots, cruise at almost 30 knots, and come to a full speed stop in two boat lengths. Its 21-in. draft will allow all of this to be done in less than three feet of water. It will be unveiled at the Seattle International Boat Show, January 13-24, 2005. The M2 evolved out of its Naval cousin, the 340C patrol boat, that Moose Boats has been building for the U.S. Navy. The Navy standards have been carried over entirely to the M2, making it a significantly different vessel for the experienced boater with demanding recreational or commercial needs. The M2 Sport Utility Boat is built on a symmetrical planing catamaran hull, which provides for an extremely fast and stable working platform.
