North Beach VFD signs agreement for new 46′ jet powered Fire Boat

 

After nearly a 5 year journey, the North Beach VFD has successfully signed a build agreement with Moose Boat Manufacturing for our replacement fire boat.

The new fire boat will be

  • 46’ catamaran style, with a 1500 GPM pump
  • two – 600 hp Cummins motors powering twin jet drives
  • two – monitor nozzles
  • two – SWIT Link floatation rafts, a Davit Lifting device
  • state of the art marine electronics.

This boat will significantly improve the marine emergency response capabilities not only for Calvert County but the surrounding jurisdictions.
