Bollinger Shipyards is relying on ShipConstructor 3D marine production software to build the U.S. Coast Guard’s Sentinel Class Fast Response Cutters (FRC). The Sentinel Class is a new generation of USCG patrol boat that is a replacement for the Island Class Cutters Bollinger built almost a quarter century ago. The contract for up to 34 vessels is expected to last ten years.

These cutters are based on a Damen 4708 hull form modified by Bollinger using ShipConstructor to meet the US Coast Guard’s specific requirements.

“We’ve used ShipConstructor for everything—the entire model, structure, HVAC, piping, everything,” said Dennis Fanguy, Bollinger’s Vice President of Quality Management Systems.

The company has used ShipConstructor on other naval vessels such as the USS Freedom (LCS 1) and Fanguy explained why.
