Chase Boat and ‘base’ for Offshore Testing In Portsmouth, RI

We enhanced our ability to efficiently conduct frequent sea trials in the waters off New England by acquiring a power boat operating out of a year-round facility in Portsmouth, RI. The Violet Frances is an Eastern 2004 27’ extended cabin vessel perfectly suited for launch/recovery and monitoring datamaran test voyages. We will relocate the boat to a facility in Boston harbor in Spring 2017 that will further reduce travel time and the logistics overhead associated with in-water testing. This will allow us to reduce the time between tests significantly. The location is particularly well suited to serve the burgeoning offshore wind-farm development off the coast of New England that is projected to continue for several decades to come
