Ocean Craft Marine Unveils a New High–Performance, Vessel Interdiction and Boarding Team Delivery Craft.


Ocean Craft Marine unveiled their new brand of boats and new high-performance Vessel Interdiction and Boarding-Team Delivery Craft (VI-BTD) last week at the High-Performance Craft Expo (HiPer Craft) 2012 in Norfolk, Virginia.  These unique high-performance boats were specially designed for elite law-enforcement and military mariners. 


“We saw unique opportunities to partner with fellow marine Industry leaders and collaborate on constructing a new range of high-performance boats pairing the latest advances in maritime shock-mitigation and communication systems with the Ocean Craft Marine superior performing concave-chine hull designs,” said Todd Salus, Ocean Craft Marine Vice President.   “We decided to introduce our new product range starting with this very unique, high-endurance, 9.5 meter, rigid hull inflatable boat (RIB) specifically defined for high-speed vessel interdiction and boarding team delivery.”
 

Ocean Craft Marine partnered with the design team at Professional Components Ltd., makers of Shockwave Seats®, to highly customize and adapt a three-axis, and fully shock-mitigated operator console known as the Integrated Control Environment or ICE2™.   In addition, the latest 9900 Series™ fully integrated, wireless crew-communications system was specially adapted by the David Clark Company® along with an M-Series thermal imaging camera from FLIR® Systems, Inc.
 

“The 9.5M VI-BTD with its completely blacked-out visual appearance, super-quiet, twin 300HP Mercury Verado™ supercharged engines and a shock-mitigated console with both a low-profile and oblique angled leading edge make for an extremely stealthy and agile package on the water.”  “With four integrated hoisting hard-points this boat is ready for shipboard launch and recovery as well as transportation by rotary wing aircraft.” “The seamless integration of technologies and extreme high-performance capability of this boat must truly be experienced first-hand,” said Salus.
 

Ocean Craft Marine is a U.S. based and privately owned company specializing in customized, maritime solutions for the elite military, law enforcement and commercial mariner. Their offices are located on the water in Annapolis, Maryland.
