Bollinger Delivers Patrol Boat

Security of the U.S. central Gulf of Mexico will be improved by the commissioning of the new 87-ft. coastal patrol boat, USCG Sturgeon, by the U.S. Coast Guard at Grand Isle, La. along with its builder, Bollinger Shipyards, Inc. Lockport, La. It will replace the 82-ft. patrol boat Point Sal that was commissioned in 1966. 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. The Sturgeon has a 17.4 ft. beam and a 5.9 ft. 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. The new shallow draft cutter equipped with state-of-the-art technology, is designed to operate up to 200 mi. offshore, as well as near shore. It is equipped with a larger pilothouse than the boat it replaces, providing 360-degree visibility 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) that improve efficiency and safety over the present crane launch and recovery system employed on the boat it replaces. The 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
