Commander Pete Berning, U.S. Navy Coastal Riverine Force, introduces the Mark VI Patrol Boat during Sea-Air-Space 2014.
“SAFE Boats is proud to have been awarded this new contract for additional Mk VI Patrol Boats for the US Navy. The Mk VI Patrol Boat program represents a new level of size and sophistication for the SAFE Boats product portfolio; through the execution of this program, we have increased our boat design and manufacturing capabilities and capacity. We look forward to the future of the Mk VI Patrol Boat program and other similar large craft programs” said Dennis Morris, President and CEO, SAFE Boats International.
SBI was awarded the initial contract for six (6) Mk VI Patrol Boats in May 2012 and will be contractually delivering the first boat to the Navy later this Fiscal Year. SBI is producing the Mk VI Patrol Boats in its Large Craft Production Facility (LCPF) located in the Port of Tacoma, Washington. Originally developed to build ships for the US Navy during WWII, the size and configuration of the facility allows several Mk VI PB size craft to be under construction simultaneously. Located on the water, the LCPF provides SBI an ideal location to produce and support large craft.
