Coastal Interceptor Vessel selected as one of the “10 Significant Boats of 2016” by Workboat Magazine.
Bremerton, WA (October 25, 2016)  The Coastal Interceptor (CIV), built by SAFE Boats International (SBI), a manufacturer of high performance aluminum boats located in Bremerton, Washington has been selected  by Workboat Magazine as one of the “10 Significant Boats of 2016”.

Operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Air and Marine Operations (AMO), the CIV is a 41-foot rugged and highly maneuverable vessel, capable of high speed interceptions in close proximity to other vessels as well as open ocean speeds at well over 54 knots. The CIV can be configured for a number of mission operations including pursuing suspect vessels for the purpose of boarding, searching, and when necessary, arresting violators and seizing the suspect vessel and contraband. SAFE Boat’s CIV is specifically configured to provide AMO Marine Interdiction Agents a safe working platform with outstanding performance, sea keeping and mission capabilities.    

“SAFE Boats is proud to be selected for this award” commented Dennis Morris, President and CEO. “We are extremely pleased to be partnered with US Customs and Border Protection to provide their marine interdiction agents with an enhanced capability to allow them to accomplish their challenging mission.  Building this incredible vessel for the Department of Homeland Security uniquely positions us for future U.S. Government programs where performance, durability, long life, total ownership costs and a daunting presence really matter.”

The US CBP AMO CIV is a variant of the SAFE 41 Interceptor, a reliable and proven commercially available design currently also in service with the Royal Bahamian Police, Royal Gibraltar Defense Forces, Colombian Navy and a number of private owners.

An award ceremony will be held at the International Workboat Show in New Orleans, Louisiana on December 1, 2016.  The “2016 Boat of the Year” will be chosen at the ceremony from the group of ten finalists.
