Moose Delivers Patrol Boats to Navy

June 19, 2007

Moose Boats recently delivered four M2-35 Moose Boats to the U.S. Navy. Last year, Moose Boats was awarded a U.S. Navy contract for the construction and delivery of twelve M2-35 Catamaran Patrol Boats. This is the first delivery to the U.S. Navy under the current contract. The remaining eight vessels will be delivered over the next 10- month time period. The M2-35 is a 35.5 ft. aluminum catamaran powered by twin Cummins (CMI) 380 hp turbo diesels and is propelled by Hamilton 292 water jets. These vessels will be assigned to the U.S. Navy’s Kings Bay, Georgia and Kitsap, Washington SUBASEs and are specifically designed to meet current Antiterrorism/ Force Protection requirements. These M2-35 crafts will be used to detect, identify, warn, disable or defeat potential threats in the vicinity of vulnerable U.S. Naval assets. The wide, stable hull along with an all-weather cabin will accommodate a crew of five. Its shallow 21 in. draft allows for a great deal of maneuverability within depths of less than 3 ft. of water. These boats have a service speed of 27 knots and a top speed of over 35 knots.
