Twin John Deere PowerTech 6090SFM85 Tier 3 engines each deliver 373 kW (500 hp) of on-the-water power for the two new jet-propelled water taxis operated by Tymac Launch Service of Vancouver, BC.
Measuring 11.27 meters (37 feet) long and sporting a 3.96-meter (13-foot) beam, the taxis carry up to 12 passengers. Tymac Launch uses the vessels to swiftly transport boat pilots, shipping agents, marine surveyors, and other officials to and from the deepwater ships in the port city of Prince Rupert, BC.
