SeaArk Marine recently completed a 27-foot Commander RAM fire/rescue boat for the Potomac Heights Volunteer Fire Department in Indian Head, Md. The boat will be used for fire suppression and emergency rescue missions on the Potomac River and surrounding waters.
The vessel is based on a hull designed by C. Raymond Hunt Associates and is built of all-welded marine-grade aluminum.
Crew accommodations include air-ride suspension seating, two emergency treatment tables, a workstation and a climate-controlled cabin.
The Potomac Heights VFD selected twin 225-hp Honda 4-strokes that can generate response speeds of more than 40 knots.
For fire calls, a Darley 64-hp model HE64RSS 250-gpm fire pump with a 4-inch hard-piped through-hull draft line is provided.
SeaArk Marine, of Monticello, Ark., has provided the military, municipal and private sectors with work and patrol vessels for more than 50 years.
