The RB-M is a 13.7m self-righting patrol boat utilized by the United States Coast Guard for a broad range of missions including homeland security and search-and-rescue. Powered by twin Detroit Diesel 60 series diesel engines coupled to Twin Disc MG5114SC marine gears with Rolls-Royce Kamewa waterjets, the RB-M is capable of speeds in excess of 40 knots. A full cabin provides crew protection from the elements and is equipped with a robust navigation system, heating and air conditioning and shock mitigating seats and a communication system capable of communicating with other federal, state and local homeland security partners.
     
     
The USCG awarded the RB-M contract to Team RB-M in 2006. Team RB-M was formed by Kvichak Marine Industries, of Seattle, WA, and Marinette Marine Corporation, of Marinette, WI in 2002. Team RB-M has delivered over 115 RB-M vessels to the USCG since the contract was awarded. The current number of vessels under contract is 166. The RB-M is being built at two locations, Kvichak Marine’s Kent, WA plant and Marinette Marine’s ACE Marine facility in Green Bay, WI. The first vessel, 45601, was delivered to Station Little Creek, VA in 2008. All RB-M vessels are in operation at USCG stations throughout the United States.
