SeaArk Delivers Patrol Boats to Baltimore City Police Marine Unit

SeaArk Marine. Inc. has delivered three distinct mission-specific patrol craft to the Baltimore City Police Marine Unit. Missions include patrolling Baltimore's Inner Harbor, providing search and rescue, recovery and law enforcement. These enclosed cabin boats upgrade the marine unit's fleet from open, center console boats to vessels that allow the officers all season protection in all weather conditions.

The backbone of the fleet is SeaArk's 36-ft. Dauntless Class. The boat, powered by twin Caterpillar 3126 turbocharged inboard diesel engines rated at 420 hp each, reaches speeds of 31 knots.

The variable dead rise deep-V hull, designed by C. Raymond Hunt & Associates, is constructed of all-welded marine grade aluminum.

The Dauntless features a climate controlled patrol cabin and includes a storage/ work counter in the forward cuddy, DGPS Furuno 1850 depth finder with plotter and sounder. ICOM M127B radio, police band radios and law enforcement light and PA package. An optional heavy-duty mast for mounting lights, radar and antennas is also included.

Other outfitting consists of a 5.5 kW diesel generator, 30 amp shore power and a dive platform to assist in search and rescue operations.

The 36 ft. Dauntless compliments the Baltimore Police Department's recently delivered SeaArk 25 ft. VC Commander and 27 ft. VC Commander RAM.
