Moose Boats, a designer and builder of aluminum boats, has delivered a Moose M2-37 security and patrol vessel to the Oakland Police Department to provide expanded patrol duties at the Port of Oakland in addition to shallow draft response for Oakland’s waterfront.  The procurement by City of Oakland was funded by  U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s 2010 Port Security Grant Program. The vessel is stationed at Jack London Square and will provide security patrol for critical infrastructures including the Bay Bridge and Oakland Airport’s perimeter, SWAT interdiction and shallow water emergency response for the greater Bay Area.

The Moose M2-37 is a 37’-6” All-Aluminum Jet Powered Catamaran with twin Cummins 
380hp turbo diesels and is propelled by Hamilton 292 water jets.  This vessel can attain a top 
speed of over 34 knots, cruise at almost 30 knots, come to a full-speed stop in less than two boat lengths and turn on a dime.  Its 21” draft will allow all of this to be done in less than 3’ of water, which is ideal for its patrol application in the Oakland estuary.
