Vessels: Response Marine to Design Multi-Task Boats

Monday, November 24, 2003

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts awarded the design contract for a 40-45-ft. fisheries patrol boat to Response Marine, Inc. of Newburyport, Mass. (Pictured below, left). The 35+ knot boat will be used for fisheries enforcement, boating safety enforcement, homeland security as well as search and rescue patrols.

Respone Marine is teaming with Marine Design Inc. of Gulf Breeze, Fla., on the project, which is expected to be completed in late 2003 for construction proposals early in 2004.

Response Marine has also been hired by Winninghoff Boats to design and manage construction of its most recent fire/rescue boats. These include two 30-ft. twin outboard, pilothouse boats with firefighting systems up to 1,500 gpm at 150 psi, and a single outboard, open boat with a 550 gpm system. The Response-Winninghoff 30-ft. pilothouse design has been well accepted, with six fire departments in the eastern U.S. now running them.

Response Marine specializes in the design and contracting of welded aluminum boats. Other current projects include superstructure detailing of a 64-ft. excursion/research boat in conjunction with Oak Hill Marine Design; a 33-ft. jet OSRV; a 25-ft. open, diesel jet, pleasure boat; and a 23-ft. deep Vee, utility boat for production building. All boats are designed for NC cutting of the plating and structure.
