The following is text of a news release from Armstrong Marine USA:

(PORT ANGELES, Wash.) — A 46-by-15-foot planing catamaran, Liberty National I, is currently under construction at Armstrong Marine USA’s Port Angeles, Wash., facility. Completion is slated for this spring. Liberty National Golf Club selected the Armstrong Marine USA design last year. The vessel will transport passengers between North Cove Marina in New York and the private club’s dock in New Jersey.

With a U.S. Coast Guard COI for 30 passengers plus two crew, Liberty National I will accommodate the club’s robust membership. The vessel features twin Yamaha 425-hp outboards, an aft second station, full-width walk through cabin, galley, head, Northern Lights 12-kW generator, and Garmin/Furuno navigation equipment. Amenities inside the climate-controlled cabin include flip-down golf bag storage, comfortable wrap-around bench seating, and an entertainment electronics package. A bold vinyl wrap and Lumishore underwater lighting ensure a striking appearance on the water.

“Working with Capt. Ken Kreisler and General Manager Lee Smith has been a pleasure," said Charlie Crane, Armstrong Marine USA sales and marketing director. "They did their research and came to us to design a well-appointed catamaran water taxi. We were also pleased to collaborate with designer Teresa Francis to select high quality fit and finish options that will set Liberty National I apart.”
