Moose Boats, a boat designer and manufacturer in the San Francisco Bay Area, has delivered the first two M2-35 Patrol Boats on its existing eight boat contract signed in September 2009. Moose Boats has constructed and delivered 28 patrol boats for the U.S. Navy under five separate contracts. The M2-35 boats will be deployed for harbor security in Norfolk Va. and used to detect, identify, warn, disable or defeat potential threats in the vicinity of vulnerable U.S. Naval assets.

The Moose Boat M2-35 Patrol Boat built for the U.S. Navy is a 35’ All-Aluminum Catamaran with Twin Yamaha (YAMCF) 250hp outboard engines. The catamaran hull has exceptional stability, superior sea handling capabilities, and improved efficiency over a conventional mono-hull. The wide stable hull along with an all-weather cabin will accommodate a crew of four, in comfort. The boats have a service speed of 30 knots and a top speed of 38 knots.
