MetalCraft to build new firefighting boat for Kuwait

Canada’s MetalCraft Marine has been selected to build a new firefighting catamaran for an unnamed customer in Kuwait.

Designed by Walker Marine Design, the vessel will have a crew of four, a medical room, equipment storage space, and two MTU engines that will deliver speeds of up to 25 knots.

The firefighting boat will also be capable of secondary missions such as casualty evacuation, humanitarian and disaster relief (HADR), and vessel escort.
