27' Monohull Fire Boat

Destination: Anywhere. Imagine the flexibility of a boat with a fully enclosed cabin that fits nicely in a standard size shipping container. Armstrong is a step ahead of the remote location issue. Designed in two pieces, this monohull fire boat can be delivered anywhere in the world that can be reached by a shipping container. The comparatively low shipping cost combined with the value of the Armstrong vessel makes this the most competitive package in the industry.

28' Monohull Fire Boat

"The Hero" is an ultra-shallow draft vessel for emergency and disaster response.  Needing only inches of water to navigate when paired with waterjet outboards, the Hero is made to get where other boats cannot.  The large foredeck and landing gate can be used for delivering cargo or for evacuation purposes.  The Hero is in a class of its own in fire fighting support with more than 1,000 GPM delivered through two monitors via an Armstrong developed system.

Dielsel Jet Catamaran Fire Boats

Adding to the advantages of choosing a catamaran platform, diesel inboard engines paired to water jets combine speed with maneuverability to make the ultimate fire fighting vessels. Diesel engines are known for longevity while water jets also offer low maintenance costs. The resulting vessels offer an extended operating life and long term value for investment. The fire systems include options for multiple monitors, foam systems(s), de-watering valve(s) and more.
