Order of new boats for the fire brigades at Lake Constance


On May 15, 2018, Kewatec AluBoat was commissioned to build two workboats for the voluntary fire brigades of Friedrichshafen and Konstanz. They operate in the coastal of Lake Constance, which borders Baden-Württemberg state (Germany).

The boats are going to be built about 17 meters long and just under 5 meters wide. Each of them is equipped with two latest model marine diesel engines and a marine transmission that transmits the power of the machine along the shaft to the propeller. The boat’s top speed is estimated to be 27 knots.

The boats are equipped with various fire-fighting tasks. Each of them is equipped for example with fire pump and fire extinguishing supplies, stretcher and first aid material. Boats can also be used to rescue distressed people at sea.

The first boat will be delivered during early summer to the Lake Constance, and the second boat will follow at the end of summer.
