Aluma Marine delivers two environmental survey boats to New York City DEP

Aluma Marine and Fabrication has delivered two 30-foot (nine-metre) shoreline survey boats to the City of New York Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

The boats are tasked with supporting the city government’s Harbor Monitoring Program, which monitors water quality and other environmental matters in the waters surrounding the five boroughs of New York City.

The all-welded aluminium boats are powered by twin 250hp (186kW) Honda four-stroke outboard engines that deliver a speed of 47 knots.

The electronics suites include Furuno FZTL systems which incorporate 55-kilometre radars, plotters, GPS, and depthsounders. ICOM VHF radios are installed as well as Whelen siren/PA systems.
