Aluma Marine, LLC has delivered two (2) 30-foot Shoreline Survey Boats to the City of New York Department of Environmental Protection. The boats are tasked with supporting the City’s Harbor Monitoring Program, which monitors water quality and other environmental matters in the waters surrounding the five (5) boroughs of New York City.
The all-welded aluminum boats are powered by twin 250 HP Honda 4-stroke outboard engines.
At factory sea trials, the boats ran at 55 m.p.h. The electronics suites include Furuno FZTL systems which incorporate 36-mile radars, plotters, GPS’s and depthsounders. ICOM VHF radios are installed as well as Whelen siren/pa systems.
For crew comfort, the boats have heating and air conditioning that are powered by 9 Kw Northern Lights generator sets and Norcold refrigerators.
The customer was very pleased with the boats upon their delivery and looks forward to many years of excellent service. The boats are based on a well-proven Aluma design and construction. In addition, this hull design can be re-configured for other missions including firefighting, law enforcement and various other commercial and military applications.
Aluma designs and builds rugged, heavy-duty, all-aluminum vessels for government, military, municipal and commercial use with special emphasis on performance, crew safety and comfort, and operational objectives.
