All American Marine built and delivered eight aluminum survey launch monohulls for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Each vessel was procured under a General Services Administration contract awarded by NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey. The 30’ survey vessels piggy back onto their motherships, the NOAA Ships Fairweather and Rainier. The boats are constructed using an updated version of the original design by Jensen Marine Consultants. The survey vessels are deployed to perform a variety of sea floor mapping missions along the west coast and in Alaska.
