Aluminum Boats Delivers 85-Foot Crewboat— Sixth Built For Land And Marine
Aluminum Boats, Inc., Crown Point, La., has delivered the Lanmar Cove, an 85-foot all-aluminum crewboat to Land and Marine Engineering Co. Ltd., Bromborough, Merseyside, England.
The new boat is the sixth built for Land and Marine by a Trinity Marine Group shipyard and the first all-aluminum vessel for the company.
Previous crewboats were built with lightweight steel hulls and aluminum superstructures.
The new boat is 85 feet in length, with a 20-foot beam and 9-foot depth. Normal operating draft is 4 feet. It is powered by two Caterpillar 34412TA turbocharged diesel engines developing 764 shp each at 2,100 rpm. They drive 36-inch, fourblade propellers through Twin Disc MG520 reverse/reduction gears with a ratio of 2:1.
Two 30-kw diesel generators each driven by a Detroit Diesel 3-71 engine provide electrical power.
In addition to the passenger and lounge spaces, the Lanmar Cove has accommodations and galley for a crew of six. The main cabin and lounge, pilothouse, and crew quarters are air conditioned and heated by a Carrier five-ton water-cooled system with 208-volt strip heaters.
A partial list of navigation and communications equipment includes a Racal-Decca radar, a Kelvin Hughes Husun VHF radio, an ICOM SSB radio, and a Marconi depth recorder.
The Vessel is Bureau Veritas (BV) certified, Sea and Rivers, Gulf of Guinea.
Aluminum Boats, Inc. is part of the Trinity Marine Group, Gulfport, Miss., which is owned by Trinity Industries, Inc., Dallas, Texas.
