Coast Guard Sector Charleston hosts ceremony to recognize the arrival of its new Response Boat-Medium.

This 45-foot boat is designed to replace the 1970’s era 41-foot Utility Boats that are currently assigned to Coast Guard Sector Charleston.

The delivery is the first of five boats that will be delivered to Coast Guard Sector Charleston during the next year and assigned to four small boat stations throughout South Carolina and Georgia.

The RB-M is one of the Coast Guard’s newest boats and is equipped with state-of-the-art marine technology that makes the RB-M a high performer. Its outfit includes an advanced electrical system, water jet propulsion, and integrated electronics that allow greater control from the pilothouse. Its increased capability will enable the Coast Guard to respond to missions more effectively within the coastal South Carolina and Georgia region.
