24-Foot Explorer Fire Boat Delivered to Webster, TX Fire Department
Silver Ships has taken a trip to the Lone Star State – the team recently delivered a 24-foot dive support boat to the Webster, Texas Fire Department. This fleet improvement will prove to be helpful to the city of Webster, being that their location is adjacent to multiple bodies of water, including Clear Lake and Clear Creek.
The Webster Fire Department is making the most of its new boat and taking full advantage of its amenities through an agreement with Webster Police Department to allow for joint operation of the vessel. While this boat will be primarily used for rescue and dive operations, it will also serve as a tool for law enforcement and first responders.
The vessel is a part of Silver Ships’ Explorer Series and is perfect for quick response on the water. Twin Honda 135HP outboard motors produce a maximum speed of over 30 knots, and it has a cruise speed of 25 knots. This allows for a great response time and efficiency in emergency situations.
This fire boat can accommodate a full crew and side-by-side ATV. It has an electric powered bow door with a 60-inch clearance, making the vehicle transition from water to land simple and seamless.
