Full Swing Custom Aluminum Armstrong Marine Catamaran Crew Hauler

A new 35' crew boat was constructed by Armstrong Marine and was delivered to Freedom Marine LLC. this past June.

Freedom Marine delivers Marine equipment to some of the most remote areas of the arctic.  The owner, Captain Bob Candopoulus has been in the business of remote marine operations and logistics for 30+ years and has several Armstrong boats.  Captain Candopoulus was specifically looking for Armstrongs' "flexabillity and creativity" to make this Catamaran happen.  Armstrong Marine used that creativity coupled with years of experience to design and build this 35' long by 13' wide vessel that outfitted with twin Honda 250s for a total of 500hp for a maximum speed of  about 35 knots. This craft holds up to 18 passangers along with 2 crew members and a hydraulically operated bow door for loading and unloading of crew and materials.  Designed specifically to traverse through the the dangerous Beaufort and Chukchi Seas this vessel is US Coast Gaurd Sub Chapter-T inspected and certified, the "Full Swing" was designed to handle the most harsh elements and went from the drawing board to delivery in just less than 3 months.
