MetalCraft Marine, a manufacturer of custom, high-speed aluminum fire, patrol and workboats for the North American market, has chosen the state-of-the-art, “Zeus,” night-vision camera manufactured by OceanView Technologies for its new 70-ft, FireStorm, fire boat.

Representing the top of OceanView’s extensive night-vision camera line, the Zeus, features three cameras in one unit: thermal zoom, low-light zoom and color zoom. The Zeus also offers fiber-optic image-stabilization and lock-on object tracking.

Based in Kingston, Ontario, with a U.S. office in Clayton, N.Y., MetalCraft has been building high-speed custom aluminum patrol and work boats since 1987. The new FireStorm-70 runs at a top speed of 42 knots (46 mph) and can pump up to 14,000 gallons of water per minute.
