Response Boat Medium Project > History

The USCG's Response Boat-Medium project is part of an overall plan to standardize and revitalize the USCG's aging fleet of vessels. The RB-M will replace the fleet of 41-foot utility boats and assorted non-standard boats that are in operation throughout the United States and have been the workhorse at coastal stations for more than 25 years.

Kvichak Marine is proud and excited to be a part of this long-term revitalization project set forth by the USCG. The timeline below summarizes our participation from acquisition to delivery:
