“Churchill” – 42’ x 13.5’ Patrol Vessel V-berth

This boat was designed and built for the Alaska State Troopers for patrol and search and rescue duties.  The troopers wanted a large platform that could handle big water, but desired the simplicity of using outboard motors for propulsion.  The result is a large boat that performs well by using three main engines.  This boat also has an on board diesel generator with PTO for running on board hydraulics, electric bow thruster, power inverter, hydraulic deck crane, hydraulic anchor winch, hydraulic pot puller and davit on the rail, full galley with microwave/refer/water heater/cooktop/sink/storage, and a large U-shaped dinette.  The flybridge has a full control station and an antenna arch that has LED light bars and radar.  This is a great platform from which the Troopers can carry out their mission while still being comfortable and very safe.
