Local boat manufacturer builds three boats for New York Fire Department

Three latest additions to the FDNY fleet are 33-foot long, full-cabin boats

SAFE Boats International, of Bremerton, recently delivered three boats in August to the marine division of the New York Fire Department.

Since 2006 SAFE has built and delivered a variety of boats to FDNY, ranging in size from a 27’ full-cabin vessel with firefighting equipment to the 64’ “Bravest” with three separate fire pump stations that went into service in 2011. The three latest additions to the FDNY fleet are 33-foot long, full-cabin boats.

“SAFE has built many boats capable of fire fighting for customers all across the country,” Business Development Director James Babcock said. “But we are especially proud to be a part of the tradition of the brave men and women of the FDNY.”
