Kvichak Marine Industries will showcase its RB-M and TPSB at DIMDEX 2012
 
Kvichak Marine Industries, Inc. (KMI) of Seattle, WA, USA continues to be a preferred builder for the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG). KMI recently delivered another four 45’ Response Boat – Medium (RB-M) vessels to the USCG, bringing the total RB-M’s in operation to 80 out of the 180 boat contract awarded in 2006. Designed by Camarc Design, UK, the RB-M is a self-righting patrol boat capable of handling the broad range of missions covered by the USCG with the primary mission of maritime security and search-and-rescue.

Measuring 45’ in overall length, the all-aluminum vessel is powered by twin Detroit Diesel 60 series engines rated for 825 BHP each and Rolls Royce Kamewa FF375S waterjets. This combination allows for excellent maneuverability and a top speed exceeding 40 knots.
