A new breed of crew boat is on the water. Meet Eagle 44, a 31′ 12 passenger EagleCraft, powered with a Volvo D9-500 (500HP diesel) and driven by an Arneson ASD10 surface drive. It can acheive a top speed of 36 knots, and smoothly cruises at 32 knots while only burning 71 litres p/hr of diesel.More info at http://eaglecraft.com/dev/photo-gallery/commercial-vessels/eagle44/
We delivered the Port of Nanaimo’s new 39′ EagleCraft pilot/patrol vessel, the “NPA Osprey”, on May 11th. The multipurpose vessel weighs in at 23,620lbs, and can reach a top speed of 27kts and a cruising speed of 23kts thanks to the twin Volvo D6-370’s with Hurth/ZF R.6 HS801 V-Drives and 4 blade Nibral propellers. The 39’er is also remarkably easy to manoevre as it is fitted with Keypower hydraulic bow and stern thrusters. The electronics on board include a FLIR M-324 infra-red camera with a 10″ display, 3 Lowrance HDS10 displays with side-scan sonar, radar and GPS, 2 RCL100 remote control searchlights, and much more.
The Nanaimo Port Authority will utilize this vessel for pilotage/patrol, fire-fighting, and water ambulance service to the Southern Gulf Islands and the Nanaimo harbour area. The Port of Nanaimo sees a considerable amount of ship traffic on a daily basis, including cruise ships using their new terminal.
39′ EagleCraft “NPA OSPREY”
We are proud to announce the successful launch of Daigle Marine’s biggest, baddest aluminum landing craft to date. At 46’ and powered by twin Volvo Penta D6 330HP turbo diesels, the ‘Sugloo’ can cruise comfortably at 22 knots (empty) and has a load capacity of approximately 20,000 lbs. Every EagleCraft manufactured here in Campbell River is built to withstand the tough conditions faced on the West coast. This vessel, however, is on its way to its new Arctic home in Inuvik, NWT, where it will be operated by Sugloo Marine Services. The ‘Sugloo’ will be used to transport supplies and cargo to remote and otherwise isolated Arctic communities along the MacKenzie River and the Beaufort Sea, such as Tuktoyaktuk.
Other Features of the ‘Sugloo’:
- 6,000lb Capacity Hiab Crane with a 20ft reach
- Front loading ramp- operated using two Pull Master Hydraulic Winches
- 20kw Northern Lights Diesel Generator that has a PTO to run the hydraulics
Compliments of Roger McDonell- Ahead of the Parade Productions:
