The U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command (USASMDC/ARSTRAT) has awarded a $36 million contract to Brunswick (BC) Commercial and Government Products (BCGP) to supply up to sixty 32-foot and 37-foot Boston Whaler Justice models.


The boats will support U.S. Southern Command’s counternarcotics assistance program within Central America and the Caribbean to counter transnational organized criminal networks in Latin America. The boats will be supplied over a four-year period. Both models feature Boston Whaler’s unsinkable Unibond™ construction, center console layouts, heavy-duty angled rub strakes and engine crash rails to prevent damage, and bow mounts for weapons. The 32-foot Justice is powered by twin Mercury Verado outboard engines and features twin bolster seats at the helm. The 37-foot Justice is powered by triple Mercury Verado outboard engines and includes an integrated bow thruster for maneuverability and a climate-controlled cabin with head and berth. Both models include shock-mitigating seats in the cockpit for crew safety and comfort in rough seas.
