Coastal Patrol Boat

A new 87-foot coastal patrol boat USCG Sturgeon has been commissioned by the U. S. CoastGuard at Grand Isle (Louisiana, USA). Sturgeon is the 36th of 50 nearly identical vessels being built by Bollinger for the Coast Guard in a contract worth more than $200 million. This new, fast, shallow draft cutter equipped with state-of-the-art technology, is designed to operate up to 200 miles offshore as well as near shore. The vessel is 87 feet long, with a 17.4-foot beam and 5.9 foot draft. It is powered by two MTU diesel engines with a top speed of 25 knots and a range of 882 nautical miles.

It has a crew of ten and accommodations for 11 in any male/female crew mix. A bridge provides 360-degree visibility and is fitted with an integrated and sophisticated command and control system. It also has a stern launch and recovery system for a small aluminum boat with rubber side guards (RIB). Sturgeon is capable of meeting its maritime missions of search and rescue, law enforcement, marine environmental response and protection, commercial vessel safety, recreational boating safety and national defense. It is designed to work closely with the Coast Guard's future deep-water assets and all of its aircraft. The cutter is uniquely capable of providing home defense and is expected to provide added security for LOOP (Louisiana Offshore Oil Port) and offshore energy platforms for many years.
