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.
