M i t c h e l l M a r i n e Delivers Fourth Service Boat

Mitchell Marine, builder of high quality aluminum workboats and crewboats located in Lafayette, La., has recently delivered the fourth in a series of 35-foot water taxis to Jancovich & Son of San Pedro, Calif. The standard 35-foot Mitchell design was chosen to meet the requirement of transporting crews and supplies to oceangoing vessels in the San Pedro and Long Beach anchorage areas.

Because of the combination of available deck cargo area, interior comfort and high speed, these 35- footers are well suited for water taxi purposes. All four boats are Coast Guard certified and can carry up to 24 passengers and a cargo load of 5,000 pounds.

For propulsion, each boat is equipped with two Detroit Diesel engines coupled with Twin Disc marine gears, giving the boats a cruising speed of 25 knots.

The electronics package on these boats includes a Si-Tex III radar system and Regency MT-7000 VHF radio.

These and all other Mitchell designs are built with heavy plating to withstand repeated hard knocks, integral frame construction for longer hull life, reinforced deck plating for heavy loads, and a low profile for good stability. These designs have evolved from experience in the construction and petroleum industries which has resulted in a line of boats that will take hard service and continue to operate for many years.
