Craft type: SES
Builder: Vosper Hovermarine
Operating: Tacoma, USA
This fireboat was based on the successful HM218 series
and broke new ground as a fast response vessel.
WMT key members were responsible for the detailed engineering design of
a complex fire system which could pump the equivalent of the craft's weight
in one minute.
A further version has recently been delivered by Textron Marine to the
New York fire department.
