Combined Task Group 68.6/CRS-TEN FORWARD is responsible for planning and execution of expeditionary missions in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of responsibility. Camp Lemonnier is an operational installation that enables U.S., allied and partner nation forces to be where and when they are needed to ensure security in Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia.

The Dauntless Sea Ark patrol boat is manufactured by the company Willard Marine under license. For 27 years, Willard Marine has designed and built U.S. Navy ship-board RIBs that are 7- and 11-meters in length featuring a wide variety of propulsion, deck and outfitting arrangements.

In an exclusive licensing agreement with SeaArk Marine, Inc., Willard Marine offers the newly engineered 34-foot Dauntless with a high-deadrise, deep-v hullform and history of proven ocean performance. This stable and capable boat is preferred by many law enforcement and military agencies that must board other vessels in rough conditions.

Now, with the latest marine equipment and outfitting, the 34' Dauntless features wide chines, access to all equipment for maintenance, and an enclosed weatherized cabin for protection from the elements. The boat has twin 600 HP diesel engines with Hamilton 322 Waterjets and achieves 40 knots at full load; shock-mitigating seating for four crew members; weapon mounts; aft folding bench seats; removable aft canopy; swim step; and foam collar.

In the U.S. Navy, the Dauntless Sea Ark patrol boat can be armed with one 12.7mm machine gun mounted at the front deck and two M240 7.62mm machine guns mounted at the rear of the boat.

The Dauntless is available in additional sizes and offers many equipments and outfitting options; please contact us for more information.
