High-Speed Excursion Catamaran Delivered for Alaska Lodge Support Service
05-01-2011 A high-speed catamaran was delivered this month to Alaska Wildland Adventures of Girdwood Alaska. Coastwise Corporation provided concept and detailed design, and construction support for the M/V Wild Lander. This catamaran was designed as a remote Alaska lodge support vessel to carry both passengers and light cargo to locations with un-improved beaches.
The new 44 foot aluminum catamaran is a USCG inspected subchapter T passenger vessel and is certified to carry up to 49 passengers. The Wild Lander’s design provides passengers excellent wildlife viewing during transit and also carries luggage and light cargo in forward cargo holds. The vessel has an aluminum bow ramp to support beach landing and is powered by two 610 horsepower water jets and makes a loaded speed of 26 knots.
The owner of the vessel contacted Coastwise Corporation to take advantage of our 22 years of experience designing USCG inspected high-speed catamarans and to ensure construction support quality.
