METALCRAFT MARINE FIRESTORM 30
This Is a Great Opportunity To Own a Firestorm 30
Metalcraft Marine Firestorm 30 which was originally built to order (2012) and put into service for a fire department in the United States. The fire department traded in the boat and purchased a new fire boat from Metalcraft Marine. Please call Hucks Marine sales office for complete details.
In 2017, the boat was purchased by a local construction company and they contracted Metalcraft Marine to refit the boat as a crew/work boat. Please call Hucks Marine sales office for complete details.
The refit work included:
Removal of the bow section and stern chine section of the boat. The bow and stern chine were rebuilt (new aluminum) and “push knees” were added to the boat so the boat can push a barge, another boat, or push against a dock.
All original electronics, engines, pumps, cabin interior, cabin glass were removed. New engines (Cummins with less than 100 hours) were installed with all new wiring, batteries, pumps, jet pumps, electronics, new seats with suspension, and bench seating. Hull and deck were repainted. New rub rail, bow handrails, and anchor locker installed.
The boat was launched in October 2017 in Kingston.
Hucks Marine replaced all of the shift cables Summer 2018.
The boat is well suited as a crew/workboat, dive/salvage, and could be modified back to rescue applications.
