Hybrid Designs are a distinctive set of vessels that do not fall within the confines of a SAFE standard boat line. SAFE offers these configurations and others to meet unique mission requirements of our customers.
Riverine Command Boat (RCB)
The Riverine Command Boat (RCB) is a fully enclosed platform designed to conduct command and control, tactical mobility and fire support operations in hostile riverine and littoral (near-shore) environments. The RCB is powered by twin diesel engines mated to water jets and equipped with key features that include an insertion and extraction bow door, reconfigurable mission space, manned/unmanned weapon mounts, an elective chemical weapons air filtration system, and optional armor. These design features, combined with sea, air and land transportability, make the RCB a one-of-a-kind multi-mission platform.
Riverine Patrol Boat (RPB)
The Riverine Patrol Boat (RPB) is an advanced multi-mission platform designed to provide tactical mobility and fire support in opposed riverine and littoral environments. The RPB's combat-proven design is comprised of a shallow draft hull, twin inboard diesel engines, water jets, actuated bow door, machine gun mounts and optional armor. The RPB is ship-to-shore capable and transportable by fixed wing, rotary wing, and prime mover. It delivers significant capabilities in austere shallow water environments.
Mk VI Patrol Boat (Mk VI PB)
The Mk VI PB is the U.S. Navy’s next generation Patrol Boat and is a part of the Navy Expeditionary Combat Command’s (NECC) fleet of combatant craft. The Mk VI PB’s mission is to provide operational commanders a capability to patrol shallow littoral areas beyond sheltered harbors and bays and into less sheltered open water for the purpose of force protection of friendly and coalition forces and critical infrastructure. The 85-foot Mk VI PB is designed for optimal performance, fuel economy, and firepower. Systems are designed to reduce Total Ownership Cost (TOC), minimize manpower and improve reliability and maintainability.
