Fast Response Cutter


Fast Response Cutter

Bollinger Shipyards (Lockport, Louisiana, USA), has been selected to design and construct up to 34 Fast Response Cutters "Sentinel" Class (FRC) for the US Coast Guard. The FRC, a new generation of USCG patrol boats, is a replacement for the Coast Guard ISLAND Class cutters that Bollinger built almost a quarter century ago. The FRC contract was competed nationally with many of the major shipyards vying for the award. The winning Bollinger design is based on a parent craft concept using a modern hull form that was originally developed by Damen Shipyards in the Netherlands.

The FRC measures 153’-5” x 25’-5” x 8’5” and is powered by two (2) TIER II diesel engines rated at 5760 Brake Horsepower. The vessel will accommodate a crew of twenty-two for up to five days at sea. The cutter’s missions will include search and rescue, drug and illegal migrant interdiction, homeland security and maritime defense. It will have a top speed over 28 knots. Operational capabilities and crew comfort are features that have been designed into the cutter. It has an extensive electronics suite to provide command and control along with sophisticated communications systems.
