The shaft and wheel propulsion system is comprised of twin John Deere 200hp diesel engines, Glendinning controls, ZF85A marine gears, NIBRAL propellers, and Optimus EPS steering. 300-gallon fuel capacity and a Furuno electronics package with autopilot provide critical range and navigation capabilities.
Exterior customizations include a walk-through transom to twin swim platforms, welded aluminum tow post, Rigid LED flood lights, and courtesy lights under the gunwales. The spacious bow deck features 10 recessed cargo tie-downs along with a Kinematics anchor winch. Rubber fendering protects the hull when working alongside other vessels.
Thoughtfully placed handrails throughout allow for safe and secure personnel transfers. A removable davit with Lifesling 3 and hoisting tackle can be quickly deployed in the event of a man overboard emergency.
NPS’ contract with Armstrong Marine also included a heavy-duty trailer for Serac, supplied by HOSTAR Marine Transport Systems.
Armstrong Marine USA creates safe, well-built aluminum vessels that do their job while inspiring total confidence with boat owners, operators and passengers.
