Kvichak Marine Industries of Seattle, Wash. has delivered a 44.5-ft by 13.7-ft Response Boat Medium – C for operation by the New York City Police Harbor Unit. This vessel is the sistership of the highly successful USCG Response Boat Medium.  The NYPD Harbor Unit vessel has been customized to meet the Harbor Unit’s mission for the successful prosecution of counter terrorism, law enforcement and search and rescue.  The vessel is outfitted with a forward cabin that includes a refrigerator, microwave, table and head, which will be more accommodating for longer missions.

The all-aluminum vessel is designed by Camarc Design, UK and powered by tier II compliant twin Detroit Diesel 60 series engines rated for 825 BHP each.  This will be the first vessel in the police fleet with Rolls Royce Kamewa FF375S waterjets for propulsion.  This combination allows for speed, maneuverability and comfort in high sea states and adverse weather conditions.

The vessel will be named at a special dedication ceremony in New York City honoring an officer who was killed in the line of duty.
