Willard 7m RIB

Headquartered in Anaheim, California, Willard Marine is emerging as a leading supplier of patrol boats for international navies: recent sales include the Lebanon Armed Forces, Egyptian navy, Ukrainian navy and Iraqi navy, under U.S. Foreign Military Sales (FMS) programs. Details as follows:

Lebanon has acquired four Willard Marine 11-meter cabin rigid-hull inflatable boats (RIBs) and four 11-meter open console RIBs for coastal patrol missions through the U.S. Coast Guard FMS office. The Lebanese navy had also acquired eight of the 11-meter boats under an earlier contract.

The Egyptian navy is acquiring three 5.4-meter RIBs via the U.S. Navy FMS program office through Halter Marine. They will be used for rescue and patrol missions, launched from a larger naval platform offshore.

The Iraqi navy is accepting delivery of ten 7-meter aluminum RIBs, built by Willard Marine. They will be serving as patrol boats and as tenders for larger vessels. Willard Marine also supplied the original 7-meter aluminum RIBs for the Swiftship’s patrol boats under a U.S. Navy FMS contract.

Willard Marine showcases its boatbuilding capabilities at the 2013 WorkBoat Show in New Orleans, Oct. 9-11, in Booth 2343.
