The Aventura Police Department recently took delivery of a 29-foot custom built Fluid Watercraft rigid inflatable boat (RIB) to serve as a patrol boat for its active waterways. Located in Miami-Dade County along the Intracoastal, the City of Aventura has many miles of shoreline and canals. Residents will benefit from the additional patrol and rescue capability of the vessel. Built by Fort Lauderdale-based Sirocco Marine, the patrol boat was designed and customized to the specifics of the Aventura Police Department. Powered by twin Honda 225 horsepower outboard engines, the boat is capable of speeds up to 55 knots. The vacuum infused GRP hull construction is lightweight and strong, capable of the toughest jobs. Multi-compartment military grade Hypalon removable tubes make the vessel virtually unsinkable and resistant to UV light, extreme temperatures and abrasion. The console is equipped with Simrad electronics.
