USCG Response Boat - Medium

The USCG Response Boat - Medium (RB-M) is one of Vigor’s most well-known designs. Originally developed by Kvichak (now Vigor) in partnership with Camarc Design for high speed and high performance, its tactical handling, reliability and specialized mission capabilities have proven themselves in countless missions for the U.S. Coast Guard. To date, 174 RB-Ms have been delivered to the U.S. Coast Guard, one to the Canadian Coast Guard and an additional eight are under construction for our growing foreign military pipeline.
