High Sierra Marine requested a towing vessel to work in Lake Tahoe, California. The boat is equipped with a wing hybrid collar measuring an overall length of 25′. The cabin presents itself as a full walk-around space with a leaning bolster seat and a bench seat. The cabin includes AJR aluminum frame windows, two sliding side doors, and one port with one starboard.

Below the deck, custom storage for portable fuel tanks, pumps, and equipment are easily packable. Flush lifting eyes are integrated into the unit as well as a tow post and an engine guard with a protection fender. Along with twin Honda 225 HP engines, a lightbar and an aluminum I-Beam trailer complete the Lake Tahoe marine boat.

The Pacific Gas and Electric (PGE) dive boat is well equipped with everything necessary for success. Essentially used for maintenance at the California Diablo Canyon Power Plant, the PGE boat is part of our Commander Series measuring 27’ x 8.5’ with a T-Top Console. The craft is surrounded by a heavy-duty D rubber fender and includes an 18-degree deadrise. As well as a dive door, PGE chose to customize their dive boat with a dive ladder and a custom dive bottle rack. 

Powering the heavy-duty utility boat are twin Yamaha 150 HP DEC engines. The electrical system is rigged with a 12V DC electrical system, shore power, a battery charge, and a davit with an electric winch. Included with electrical makeup is a 120-gallon fuel capacity as well as a top-of-the-line Garmin GPS and radio system.

The U.S Naval Survey Team contracted with Workskiff to build two 31’ hydrographic survey boats for construction in 2019 and 2020. The requirement was for a tailorable boat, with a moonpool and transducer deployment system, that could be loaded inside a C-120 Transport plane. The design is based on Workskiff Commander series, with reduced cabin height and fold-down deck gear. The boat needed to remain fully operational in sea state 3 and survive in sea state 4. The naval brief also called for an operational profile of two hours at cruise speed (25 knots) and twelve hours at survey speed (6 knots). Dimensions are 31’ X 8’.9”, and30” draft with outboard motors down. Deck equipment includes a guard for the outboards and an A-frame boom for deploying towed sonar fish. Winches are by Northwest Quality products (davit) and Then A-Frame. The transducers deployment system is by Workskiff. The vessel is powered by twin Honda 250HP iST outboard Fuel capacity is 200 gallons. Genset is by Westerbeke. The cabin has two crew stations, two survey workstations and bench seat, for a crew of five. Windows are by AIR Steering by UFLEX, electrical components by Blue Sea, heater and air conditioner by Webasto, seats by Shockwave Corbin, and electronics by Furuno.”

Workskiff’s Landing Craft was designed and built for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to conduct maintenance work on the Lower Monumental Dam in Franklin County, WA. This vessel is based on our 26′ X 8.5′ hull with pilot house, commercial grade davit, powered bow door, and twin Yamaha 150 HP. The craft is known for its stability, payload accessibility, and custom features.

In the winter of 2013 Washington DC Police Harbor Patrol took delivery of a 23 ft Workskiff Collared Fast Boat. It is used on the Potomac River in our nation’s capital. Its duties include dive operations, rescue, security, patrol and towing. The vessel features a law enforcement electronics package including FLIR and has a fully enclosable T-top with diesel heater; making it a four season craft.
