The coastal waters of North Carolina are home to a new Armstrong Marine, Inc. catamaran. The owner, Chris Freeman, purchased the vessel as the latest addition to the Geodynamics, LLC. fleet. This 28’ boat will earn its living deploying specialized equipment for data gathering and processing.
Geodynamics, LLC is an independent survey company located in Pine Knoll Shores, NC. The company harvests information with the use of hi-tech equipment including multi-beam sonar heads, Trimble dual frequency GPS, and Odom Hydrographic sound velocity probes. Geodynamics processes the data collected for beach and near shore mapping as well as acoustic doplar profiling and habitat mapping. In order to acquire accurate readings, the company requires a reliable vessel. Known for stability and efficiency, the Armstrong catamaran reputation made its way to Mr. Freeman in North Carolina.

Geodynamics worked closely with Armstrong Marine during the design stages resulting in a vessel built to their exact specifications. The cat features twin 300HP Yamaha engines rigged to dual steering stations propelling the boat to +30 knot speeds. Inside the cabin, two survey work stations with computer racks line the port side. The head compartment and small galley package sit comfortably behind the swiveling helm chair on the starboard side. Forward of the dash is a spacious cuddy cabin with ample storage. The Dometic Marine self-contained air conditioning unit and Wallas diesel heater are ducted throughout the cabin to ensure comfortable temperatures no matter the weather condition. The starboard hull houses an 8kW Westerbeke diesel generator. Along with providing for on board AC electrical needs, the generator provides power for the hydraulics. The valves for the hydraulics are positioned next to the aft steering station for easy operation of the A-frame and Pullmaster winch.
