41' WORKBOAT LARGE US NAVY

Our somewhat small, heavily built, steel tugs with aluminum superstructures are operated by a crew of two with a capacity for up to five passengers and a 3,100-lb. total payload. 

Built with precision and integrity as a Naval shore installation support vessel, these workboats are capable of assisting barges, submarines and other naval vessels. They can also be employed in opening and closing security barriers or to tow/push other floating port support equipment.

50' HYBRID RESEARCH CATAMARAN BATTELLE

Recently completed 50’ Hybrid research catamaran for the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. It is the first and only hybrid vessel in the Department of Energy’s fleet. “R/V Resilience” was designed by Incat Crowther with propulsion integration provided by Pacific Power. 

Hybrid propulsion is accomplished by joining twin Volvo Penta marine engines, and two Danfoss motor-generators. Power is stored using a Spear Trident battery system. This new combination allows the vessel to operate in a zero-emission “quiet” state, which is a more effective approach for marine research. This innovative model is less intrusive for studying fish and wildlife while also greatly reducing air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions.
