Moose Boats' M2 is an all-aluminum catamaran powered by twin 380 hp Cummins turbo diesels and propelled by twin Hamilton water jets.
The M2 can attain a top speed of over 35 knots, cruise at almost 30 knots and come to a full speed stop in two boat lengths. Its 21 in. draft will allow all of this to be done in less than three ft. of water. This high-performance, versatile, go anywhere and do anything boat will be unveiled at the Seattle International Boat Show, currently scheduled to be held January 13-24, 2005.
Much like the 'Hummer', the M2 evolved out of its Naval cousin, the 340C patrol boat, that Moose Boats has been building for the U.S. Navy.
The Navy standards
have been carried over entirely to the M2, making it a significantly different vessel for the experienced boater with demanding recreational or commercial needs.
The M2 Sport Utility Boat is built on a symmetrical planing catamaran hull, which provides for an extremely fast and stable working platform.
As a dive boat, sport fishing or exploring the shallows, the catamaran design and rugged water jet propulsion will get you there and back safely and fast.
Its full-deck level walk-around plan and compact, yet comfortable air conditioned and heated cabin, make this vessel an all weather, all year, commuter.
