All American Marine, Inc. is pleased to announce their latest vessel contract awarded by the Port of Los Angeles Harbor Department for a new dive and patrol catamaran.

The 65’ x 24’ aluminum catamaran will be used by the LA Port Police dive team and will feature Teknicraft Design’s signature hull shape and hydrofoil technology.  The design of the vessel is based upon the previously built R/V Shearwater and R/V Fulmar, which are operated by NOAA throughout California’s four National Marine Sanctuaries.  “We specialize in the design and construction of custom vessels, but selling another sister ship is a nice testament to the quality of the vessels we construct,” commented Joe Hudspeth, All American Marine’s business development manager.

 

The new vessel will serve as a valuable asset to the port police for a wide variety of safety and security missions.  One of the key functions of this multipurpose vessel is the ability to conduct oceanographic surveys within the port.  By monitoring the seafloor, the LA Port Police can help ensure that America’s largest seaport remains safe and operational.  Lt. Michael Capodanno of the LA Port Police commented, "We are really looking forward to receiving our new dive boat.  It will serve as an integral part of securing America's largest seaport, which helps to keep our country's economic engine running".

 

The vessel’s interior layout promises over 150 sq. ft. of wet and dry working space, a fully equipped galley, and comfortable dinette with u-shaped settee.  The working deck layout will accommodate a hydraulically actuated A-frame, survey winch, and dive platforms.  The propulsion package features twin Cummins QSM-11engines, each offering 705 bhp @ 2500 rpm.  Delivery for the vessel is scheduled for mid 2012.

 

All American Marine Inc., located on the shores of Bellingham Bay, was founded in 1987 and specializes in the construction of custom tailored aluminum boats.  Today, the company has become a leading builder of high speed passenger catamarans, survey craft, and research vessels.  All American Marine is the exclusive builder for Teknicraft Design Ltd. catamarans in North America.
