Fincantieri Marinette Marine and Vigor (Team RB-M) in August delivered two additional Response Boat-Mediums (RB-Ms) to the U.S. Coast Guard. These boats are part of an approved foreign military sale to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan through the Department of Homeland Security.

Fincantieri Marinette Marine was the prime contractor and program manager for the project, and Vigor built the vessels at its Seattle facility.

The Royal Jordanian Naval Force (RJNF) plans to operate the new boats from its base in Aqaba, Jordan, for security missions, search and rescue, and drug interdiction along with visit, board, search and seizure operations (VBSS). The 13.6-meter vessels are capable of a top speed of more than 42 knots and have a mission duration of up to 24 hours.

Key features on the vessels include FLIR night vision technology, push knees for added control with VBSS operations, and a composite aft deck hardtop for crew comfort. The vessels utilize shock mitigating seats, Vector-Stick Integrated Control Systems, and port and starboard rescue wells for water retrievals.

Team RB-M previously delivered 174 similar boats to the U.S. Coast Guard and is completing six additional boats to the Kingdom of Bahrain.
