Moose Delivers M1-44 Patrol Boat Moose Boats, an aluminum boat manufacturer, has delivered a M1-44 catamaran to the US Park Police in New York Harbor. The M1-44 all aluminum catamaran is powered by twin 600hp Cummins diesel engines coupled to twin Hamilton 322 water-jets with Hamilton Blue Arrow Controls and includes a second full upper station. The boat fea- tures an extra wide fully enclosed cabin complete with a mini-galley, large work station, dinette and three shock mit- igating seats. The cuddy cabin offers a full size berth and head compartment. This vessel attains a top speed of 40 knots, cruises at approximately 30 knots and will be used for security patrol of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The Marine Patrol Unit acquired a 32 aluminum Cat from Moose Boats in the spring of 2003 and it has been in service in Jamaica Bay ever since. The 44 Vessel will replace a 41 aluminum patrol boat that was donated by the USCG in 2002 and will function as 40-knot Harbor Patrol Boat in New York Harbor, NY providing maritime safety, port security as well as environmental response and protection. This M1-44 is equipped with twin Cummins turbo-diesel QSC engines coupled with Hamilton 322 water jets.34MNAugust 2011Metal Shark 40 Fearless ? Why Settle for Exceptional?Metal Shark breaks out of the world of bland and bor- ing with its 40-foot, twin-step Fearless. Built on the com- panys heralded commercial and military underpinnings, the 40 Fearless blurs the line between recreational and commercial. Built to protect the men and women of the military, the all-aluminum vessel was conceived as the next-generation standard for border protection, port secu- rity, and drug interdiction. The 40 Fearless is also ideally- suited for civilian boaters looking to make a break from the conventional. The Fearless durable construction and wide assortment of standard features make it ideal for any number of appli- cations, but its the boats twin-stepped hull, outstanding fuel efficiency, raw horsepower, and unparalleled strength that set it apart from the rest. Sleek, well-appointed, and built to withstand brutal offshore conditions and near- shore runs alike, the 40-foot Fearless is built on a high- performance, twin-stepped tunnel hull ? an industry first in aluminum boats designed for civilian use. When its time to get up and go, the Fearless responds instantly to the Livorsi throttle controls by unleashing up to 1,400 horsepower for top speeds in excess of 70 miles per hour. Built of lightweight 5086 marine-grade aluminum alloy, the 40 Fearless also creates a stir in the coves with its jaw- dropping lines, and is tough enough to stand up to almost any level of abuse. Give the Fearless ¾-inch hull a beat- ing; itll thank you for the privilege and come back beg- ging for more. Metal Shark also offers custom bow seating configura- tions built to customer specifications. Added comfort comes courtesy of the boats huge, cantilevered T-top, which provides exceptional protection from the elements. A fully-enclosed berth also keeps occupants dry in foul weather conditions, and a full head is available. VESSELSPhoto courtesy Metal SharkPhoto courtesy Moose Boats
