PORT ANGELES, WA - Jan. 29 2018 – Boat builder Armstrong Marine launched ‘Adel,’ a new 32’ x 11’ survey catamaran on January 19 and completed sea trials on January 25. The build contract was awarded to Armstrong last year by an Israeli engineering firm.
Twin 225hp diesel inboards power the vessel, which also includes a 4.5 kW generator, autopilot, and engine compartment fire suppression system. An AC unit, cuddy cabin berth, galley, and head with shower are designed to keep crew comfortable. The survey package includes a computer work station for 3, hydraulic A frame, aluminum davit, and aft deck moon pool for equipment deployment. Vibration dampening mounts and acoustic dampening insulation will ensure accurate hydrographic readings.
The client commented during sea trials that the vessel will be an “excellent” tool for their operations throughout Israel and the Mediterranean.
