Moose Boats, a boat designer and manufacturer in the San Francisco Bay Area, delivered the 70th Moose Boat built, a M2-37 Catamaran Patrol Boat to San Francisco Police Department. The M2-37 all aluminum catamaran will be powered by twin Cummins QSB6.7L 425hp turbo diesel engines coupled to twin Hamilton HJ292 water-jets. The cabin is outfitted with shock mitigating seating for three personnel, a generous workstation, an array of Furuno navigation equipment, Motorola and Icom communications equipment and FLIR gyro-stabilized thermal imaging equipment with a dedicated Nauticomp display screen.

San Francisco Police Department’s new M2-37 catamaran joins the growing fleet of Bay Area Moose Boats currently in service with Contra Costa County Sheriff, Tiburon Fire Rescue District, San Francisco Fire Department and Oakland Police Department on San Francisco Bay.

The M2-37 will be responsible for deterring and mitigating threats to San Francisco’s critical infrastructure and maritime commerce as well as serving as a regional asset in the event of a terrorist threat or natural disaster. In addition, the boat will be providing patrol and security services during the upcoming Americas Cup Races in 2013.

The City of San Francisco utilized a Fiscal Year 2007 California Port and Maritime Security Grant Program award to purchase the Moose Boats M2-37.
