Marine 9

For more than 20 years, the Washoe County Sheriff’s office has been patrolling the waters of Lake Tahoe from the California State Line to the Carson City line. Marine 9 is a Titan Pilot, T-280 RHIB (Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat) Vessel. The 28-foot vessel is equipped with the latest radar, sonar, and navigational technology by RayMarine, and is also equipped with Forward-Looking InfraRed (FLIR), a video system, and a SirenMarine early warning system which notifies emergency operators of a variety of systems failures. Marine 9 is powered by twin 300HP Mercury Verado engines with a top speed of more than 50 MPH.

Marine 9 is crewed and operated by commissioned deputy sheriffs. The vessel was purchased in partnership with the community and with drug forfeiture funds.
