(JERSEY CITY, N.J.) — Brix Marine (formerly Armstrong Marine USA) of Port Angeles, Wash., has delivered a new luxury water taxi, Liberty National I, to Liberty National Golf Club after successful launch and sea trials in Port Angeles Harbor. Liberty National Golf Club selected the Brix Marine design last year and will utilize the planing catamaran to transport passengers between North Cove Marina in New York and the private club’s dock in New Jersey.
The 46-foot Liberty National I carries a U.S. Coast Guard certificate of inspection for 30 passengers plus two crew. It features Helm Master electronic steering, an aft second station, spacious walk-through cabin, Northern Lights 12-kW generator, and Garmin/Furuno navigation equipment. Twin Yamaha 425-hp outboards provide a cruising speed of 25 knots.
Brix collaborated with Seattle designer Teresa Francis to select the interior fit and finish, which includes quartz countertops, leather wraparound bench seats, and black Llebroc Bandera helm and copilot seats. A tinted polycarbonate privacy window behind the helm station provides privacy for guests and crew. The climate-controlled cabin boasts flip-down golf bag storage, an entertainment electronics package, galley with refrigerator drawers, and hot water in the head.
Through the cabin, a wraparound bench seat on the foredeck, which includes additional storage, allows for optimal sightseeing and photo opportunities for guests. The bold vinyl wrap and Lumishore color-changing underwater lighting ensure a striking appearance on the water.
