#524A, 31.3' x 11.8'-  Cat/Tri Landing Craft- SubChapter T- 28+2

Background:

This design kit is a close sister of our #524 design.  This version was originally built by Viking Welding for Save the Bay's marine science programs in the environs of Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island.  Rosemary Quinn is USCG Subchapter T certified for 28 passengers plus 2 crew on a Partially Protected Route.  Essentially the same hull is also built with a different deck and shelter arrangement (our #525B design) as a 36 passenger water taxi for Protected waters.   

Twin side dive doors, large roof,  and convertible bench/sampling table are but a few of the features that make this a highly customized design for coastal marine research, education and exploration.  As built, there is an enclosed head and a combination of fixed and hinged seating for 28 passengers.
