Kvichak Marine Industries has furthered its presence in the catamaran and patrol boat markets by combining the two to construct patrol catamarans.

The company's newest delivery is an add-on to its 54-ft. (16.4 m) patrol catamaran that was built for California Fish and Game (CAF&G). Named Thresher, the vessel will be joined by a sistership, Marlin, this coming spring. In addition, the company said the Alaska Fish & Wildlife Protection (AF&WP) - that has ordered a new cat for fisheries patrol. This new generation of catamarans is conducive because of their increased stability and usable deck space for patrol operations. Each will also house a variety of deck equipment along with boarding launches.
