Moore Boat said it delivered an all new aluminum Moore Fire 32 to the Ocean City Fire Department after the completion of various sea trials.

The Moore Fire 32 is unique in its ability to respond to rescue and/or fire in areas normally deemed unnavigable to traditional fire boats, the builder said. The vessel has been purpose built for its intended area of response here in the Ocean City area.

The Moore Fire 32 is the first of a new series of fire boats from Moore Boat. It utilizes the patented hull form that and has a LOA of 32’ and a beam of 12’. It is powered by twin 350 HP diesel engines turning jets which also serve as the source for the fire system, an industry first for a twin jet application. The jets are manifolded thus allowing for station keeping while the vessel is flowing water to the monitor or various hand lines. The boat is capable of 40+ miles per hour with the unique ability to transverse sandbars with depths as shallow as six inches. Statically the boat has a draft of 18.5 inches.

The Moore Fire 32 is a purpose built Fire/Rescue platform offering a central ergonomic focused helm, thermal camera, aft work platform with drop down transom, and abundant storage. Additionally, the vessel offers an infirm/triage area located within the pilot house, integrated body board storage and removable davit system among many other rescue specific design features.

The firefighting system can produce total flow meter results of approximately 1,250 gallons per minute (GPM) and project a stream up to 250 feet with its remote controlled roof mounted monitor. This is over double the outflow that was required by the fire department. The vessel additionally works as a shore hydrant, supplying land based equipment from a 5" Storz outlet. An integrated foam system and foam storage is also integrated into the design. Four additional hand lines can be configured for fire fighting.

"During the build process, we worked closely with many members from the Ocean City Fire Department to customize the many items that needed to be integrated into the finished product,” said Mike Early, Vice President of Moore Boat.

A formal dedication is scheduled for June 27, 2013. Moore Boat’s construction facility is located just outside of Ocean City MD, on the St. Martins Neck River.
