The USCG RB-M is the company’s flagship small boat program, having constructed over 85 of the high speed 45ft aluminum response boats on time and on-budget since 2003. Based on the rugged, dependable, and multi-mission capabilities of the RB-M, with a proven high service life and no significant hull fatigue issues, it has recently been certified as heavy weather capable. As a result, four RB-Ms have replaced aging 47ft Motor Life Boats for operations in challenging environments. Several international navies, coast guards and border guards are currently engaged with the USCG in potential Foreign Military Sales. Modified designs, such as hot weather packages for desert and tropical environments are available.
