Kvichak delivers Yellow Rose to Houston Pilots

Kvichak Marine Industries, Seattle, recently delivered the 77 ft 10 in x 21 ft 7 in pilot boat Yellow Rose for operation by the Houston Pilots on the Houston Ship Channel. It is designed to operate as a pilot launch transporting pilots to and from a shore side dock and the Houston Pilot's SWATH, and to perform pilot transfers to commercial vessels.

Designed by Camarc Design, U.K, the all-aluminum vessel is powered by twin Tier II Cummins QSK-38 engines rated for 1,400 BHP each, which are coupled to ZF 4600 transmissions driving twin Hamilton 651 waterjets. This combination allows for excellent maneuverability and a top speed of around 29 knots when fully loaded.
