Maine's Front Street Shipyard says it is beginning immediate construction on high-performance multi-hulls for Trefoil Marine which will be used primarily for military, police patrol, fire and rescue services.

The shipbuilders inform that these patrol boats are a catamaran design by Donald L. Blount and Associates (DLBA) of Chesapeake, VA, with superior stability, predictable handling and a smooth ride. The corrosion-free, infused composite construction vessels combine shallow draft with minimal wake. The vessel can be beached or stored without the need for a cradle. Power options include outboard, inboard diesel with drives, or jet. The T30 is designed for river and shallow water operations as much as heavy sea states.

“We’ve been working closely with Trefoil Marine as they’ve honed the design with DLBA and introduced it to prospective clients,” said JB Turner, president of Front Street Shipyard. “That relationship has allowed us to carefully plan an efficient building process for this series of Patrol Cats now that there are contracts in place.”

Front Street Shipyard add that they will take delivery of the cats’ CNC-machined plugs from DLBA Robotics of Hampton, Virginia, in early January, at which time the yard’s composites team will begin constructing molds for the Patrol Cat 30s. The hull and deck will be built of fiberglass with a foam collar around the sides and bow. The first of the boats will launch in early summer 2014.

The T30 will be joining the Trefoil line that includes the T28 and T29. The T28 is a trailerable high-speed intercept vessel, and the T29 is a wide-body configuration that provides a substantially large work platform, and more information is available at www.trefoilmarine.com
