Moose Boats, a boat designer and manufacturer in the San Francisco Bay Area, recently finalized contract specifications with The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for the construction of two M2-35 Outboard Catamarans for Patrol and Emergency Rescue Response in the waters surrounding JFK and LaGuardia International Airports.

The M2-35 aluminum catamarans will be powered by twin Yamaha 350hp outboards, are equipped with a self-contained Darley fire pump and are each capable of carrying and deploying 20 twelve-person life rafts.

Capable of 45 knots, the M2-35 vessels have a large working cockpit with a dive-door on the starboard side to allow for fast deployment of life rafts and water recoveries. The air-conditioned cabins are outfitted with shock-mitigating seats, an EMS bench and an array of high-intensity LED scene lighting.

The navigation and electronics suite is comprised of Furuno NavNet3D, ICOM and Motorola Communications and FLIR Thermal Imaging equipment.

The two new Moose Boats M2-35 Catamarans are sister ships to the four M2-35 vessels built for New York City Police Department and also join the growing fleet of Moose Boats in service in the Tri-state Area operated by United States Park Police, New York Naval Militia, Bridgeport Police Department, Old Saybrook Fire Department and New Jersey State Police.

Moose Boats has constructed and delivered over 90 vessels for Military, Law Enforcement and Firefighting applications throughout the United States.
