11 Meter Training Craft Delivered to USMC Camp Lejeune, NC
Anaheim, CA, April 1, 2008: Once again, Willard Marine, Inc. has added to their unsurpassed record of on-time deliveries with the latest in their 11 meter Rigid Inflatable Boats. Built and delivered for the United States Marine Corp, SMTC training facility at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, the 11 meter RIB was customized to meet the special needs of the SMTC training unit.
With the focus on quality, the 11-meter RIB is based on Willard Marine's 11-meter Standard Navy RIB. Equipped with a propulsion package consisting of twin Cummins QSC 540 HP engines and twin Hamilton 292 water jets, the boat is outfitted with standard electronics and reaches a speed in excess of 40 knots.
In Willard Marine's effort to continually provide excellent product support, a representative of Willard Marine was on hand when the boat arrived at Camp Lejeune and spent a few days with the Marines familiarizing them with the new 11 meter RIB.
Willard Marine would like to extend special thanks to Capt. Decotiis, SSgt Bauer and all of the members of the SMTC unit for their hospitality and professionalism.
