The Fire/Rescue-29 is the latest introduction for the MetalCraft Marine line of high speed fire/rescue boats.
The FR-29 concept is all about rapid response and lower crew demands, on a versatile trailerable Fire Rescue platform. Its twin 150 HP outboards power the boat to 40-45 MPH subject to loading and 45-50 MPH with twin 200's.
The FR-29 is fast responsive and safe with 5 X watertight compartments and level flotation provided by full perimeter 8" fenders equal to NFPA Class `A' fireboats.
Its dual port & starboard dive doors with integral ladders, vastly improve dive operations and can handle more divers with separate ingress/egress than other boats. The boat has a high metacentric height providing great stability for rescue or dive missions.
The twin 2-1/2" handlines can be wyed to provide an LDH landlline from the 575 pump arrangement or the optional 1500 GPM pump package comes with a 4 or 5" LDH Storz connection.
The aluminum 'T' top fully encloses to protect crew and can be used as an optional search tower, it also carries a full aft deck sun canopy.
Simplicity is the key to this boat with easy maintenance and repairability. The FR-29 comes with MetalCraft's standard 10 year hull warranty and is fireman tough.
This boat packs a huge punch for its small size and can be beached or get into the smallest of marinas. Ask a MetalCraft representative about our large list of options.
