Los Angeles Pilot Service Commissions Two New Pilot Boats


published on 15 October 2020 393 -

The Los Angeles Pilot Service ordered two customized 56′ Camarc Design pilot boats (P/B) built by Vigor Industrial at their Vancouver, WA facility, located on the northern side of the Columbia River. The LA Pilot Service took delivery of the P/B Angels Pilot and Angels Navigator at Vigor’s shipyard on Swan Island in Portland, Oregon in early October.

Mackay Marine was hand-selected by Vigor to be their marine electronics integration expert for both vessels providing high-end Furuno navigation systems such as their Navnet 3D TZT2 series Multi-Function Display System, with ancillary navaids including GPS, AIS, and Loudhailer. Mackay was also the provider for the boats’ FLIR Thermal Camera, Icom VHF radios, ACR EPIRB, and Wilson weBoost Cell Phone Booster System.

Camarc pilot boats are highly sought after around the world and are known for their quality performance and design features. Camarc designs are optimized to function in the most extreme climates in the world. Their pilot boats are used throughout Europe, Australia, the Middle East as well as North and South America delivering the same consistent performance as larger boats designed for the mid-sized market.
