Tactical Custom BoatsTactical Custom Boats in Vancouver, BC has announced the sale of its first vessel in its new line of high-performance, tactical tough™ aluminum hull, all-weather boats. Tactical’s first build is the T40-Express Yacht - Tactical One edition. All Tactical One editions have the highest trim level and include all options. This boat is currently under construction in the Vancouver shipyard with sea trials scheduled for Spring 2018. Key features of this boat are twin Seven Marine 627 HP engines (1254 HP), three station joystick controls, Seakeeper 5 Gyro stabilizing system, motorized sunroof and cockpit awning, and superyacht quality finishing.

“It’s exciting to have a Pacific Northwest family purchase our first boat,” says Tim Charles, Principal at Tactical Custom Boats, “we are thrilled to begin the growth of our Tactical family. We are moving forward with Hull#2 – another T40-Express Yacht.”
Tactical Custom Boats have remarkable DNA. The brand was created with the expertise of an award winning design team, Greg C. Marshall Naval Architects, and the proven building construction skills and experience of Platinum Marine and Crescent Custom Yachts. The knowledge from these highly experienced marine experts have come together to create truly unique boats with an emphasis on safety, performance, and style. Tactical employs “big boat” mechanical and electrical systems using top-of-the-line components and robust installation standards.

“Our boats are designed for the specific needs of the commercial, government, and military industries but are also ideal for the recreational market,” says Murray Johnston, Sales & Product Development. Tactical boats are available in four different hull lengths (30’, 40’, 50’, and 60’) and six different configurations (Sportfish, Express Yacht, Crew Transport, Landing Craft, Search & Rescue, and Military). All are fortified with a hybrid foam flotation collar. Propulsion/drive system options include outboard, outdrive, surface piercing drive and jet drive. Joystick control, stabilizing system, and shock mitigating seats are just a few features that ensure Tactical boats are ready for all challenges. Tactical is committed to building high performance, safe, luxurious and reliable boats that can operate safely in the very severe operating conditions found in the Northern latitudes of Canada, the USA and Europe. The Sportfish model has options for a tower configuration making it a competitive choice for sports fishers in the Southern waters of USA, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

Tactical Custom Boats is located at 11581 Mitchell Road, Richmond, a suburb of Vancouver, BC Canada. For more information visit the website at www.TacticalCustomBoats.com.
