Two water crafts built by All American Marine Inc. of Bellingham placed on the “Top 10 Significant Vessels of 2012” list at the International Workboat Show in New Orleans.
The show is one of the largest commercial marine trade shows in North America. Awards were presented by editors of Workboat magazine.
The Rick Passage 1, owned by Kitsap Transit in Bremerton, Wash., was named a significant vessel for its unique hull design. It is the seventh year in a row the vessel has made the list.
According to All American Marine, the vessel’s hull was built for low-wake research purposes can be used for high-speed passenger transport operations on wake-sensitive routes.
The other vessel that made the list, called the Sea Scout, is thought to be the first aluminum catamaran survey vessel featuring quad-propeller propulsion, according to the company.
The 134-foot by 37-foot Sea Scout is the largest craft built by All American Marine to date.
