In January 2018, Nordlund Boat Company launched the 63' pilot boat Orion for Jacobsen Pilot Service serving Long Beach Harbor, California. The boat draws upon a successful series of pilot boats built previously by Nordlund for Puget Sound pilot service. Among the innovative features are an emergency rescue lift on the stern, and twin Hamilton waterjets, powered by twin Cat C-18, 800 horsepower engines. Tim Nolan Marine Design provided structural design.
