The new 114-foot U.S. Navy Range Training Support Craft, built by Marine Group Boat Works, is capable of running completely on biofuel and using 100 percent shore power, the company announced.

The company has a contract for two more boats.

The RTSC-110s are multimission boats capable of launching and recovering objects, such as small high-speed craft, aerial targets and test weapons. The boats feature a rugged, all-aluminum hull and twin 1,800 hp Caterpillar engines.

"The Navy required a stabilization system be incorporated in the RTSC-110s," Marine Group Boat Works vice president Todd Roberts said in a statement. "It was agreed the ideal solution would avoid any hull protrusions, which inevitably led to us to Seakeeper.

"This landmark six-gyro project is the largest installation of Seakeeper stabilizers in a single vessel," he added. "Marine Group Boat Works is proud to continue making history with Seakeeper as we move on to complete boats two and three on schedule."

A full-service facility, Marine Group Boat Works handles repairs, retrofits, conversions and custom painting for pleasure, commercial and government craft up to 665 tons.

Seakeeper is a leader in internal stabilization technology.
