Robert E. Derecktor Inc. was chosen to build a 63-foot catamaran research and classroom vessel for The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, Conn.

The Maritime Aquarium has been providing student and public research voyages in the protected waters of Long Island Sound since 1988. A new Incat Crowther-designed aluminum vessel will carry as many as 65 students with a crew of five and will be fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and will meet all Coast Guard Subchapter T requirements, the company announced.

"We are happy to have this opportunity to build an unusual and sophisticated vessel for The Maritime Aquarium," Derecktor president Paul Derecktor said in a statement. "This vessel's requirements match our fundamental competencies: high-quality custom aluminum construction with complex machinery installations. She will be another in a long line of outstanding technical achievements for the shipyard."

Engineering will start immediately and delivery is set for May 2014.
