After nearly a decade patrolling the waters off Darien’s shores and sometimes rescuing boaters, Darien Police Department is selling its 26-foot, 2007 Glacier Bay 2690 patrol boat to the highest bidder.
The boat, built in 2006 by Glacier Bay Inc. in Monroe, Wash. and a mainstay of the department’s Marine Unit, was replaced last month with a new boat, so now the town is selling the “express cruising catamaran” to get back a bit of the money put into it.
The vessel is sold “as is” with no warranty. It has twin Evinrude gas engines with 175 horsepower and a trailer is included.
- New Darien Police Boat Now in Service (Oct. 25)
- Police: Darien Man Charged with Boating While Intoxicated Had 2X Legal Alcohol Level in Him (A case this summer where the boat was used in a rescue; Nov. 14)
