Now under construction at Armstrong Marine are two Jutson designed 44 ft pilot boats for Central America. The design is based around our semi displacement catamaran hull powered by 2 x Cummins 355 hp motors for a top speed of 25 kts. The choice of this design is based around the operator’s need to be able to make smooth and safe pilot transfers at a wider range of speeds than their current planing boats allow. The high roll stability of the cat is also a plus. Delivery of hull#1 is to made in December 2011.
