Moose Boats is delighted to announce the delivery of its latest project, a 75ft Crew and Cargo Transfer Vessel to San Francisco-based Westar Marine Services.

Moose Boats has delivered its largest project to date, a 75-foot-long catamaran that will be used in San Francisco Bay for passenger and cargo transfers. With a carrying capacity of over 15,000 pounds of cargo and a capacity of 28 passengers, the vessel, dubbed “Madison Lynne,” is a USCG Subchapter T vessel designed by Incat Crowther. A Volvo Penta IPS (Integrated Propulsion System) guarantees fuel efficiency and maneuverability hard to find in other propulsion systems. “This build was an excellent collaborative effort between Westar, Incat Crowther, Helmut’s Marine, Volvo Penta and Moose Boats,” said Steve Dirkes, Moose General Manager. “Seeing a boat of this size walk sideways without any bow thruster is quite incredible and a testament to Volvo Penta IPS training. We appreciate Westar choosing us for this build and hope they are as pleased with their new boat as we are with building it.

Westar Marine Services has been serving the San Francisco marine community since its founding in 1976. Offering marine construction, escort and towing, barge, water taxi and store delivery services, their experienced crews are available 24 hours a day. 24/7 from their home dock at Pier 50.
