33-foot Law Enforcement Special Purpose Craft (SPC-LE)


There are several types of Special Purpose Crafts. These crafts are unique in their performance of an authorized mission requiring specialized capability that cannot be met within the standardized boat fleet.

The 33-foot Special Purpose Craft – Law Enforcement (SPC-LE) is a multi mission craft designed and built primarily for counter-drug and migrant missions along the U.S. maritime border. Powered by three 300 horsepower outboard engines, the SPC-LE's speed and agility make it a very capable interceptor. The SPC-LE is outfitted with six shock-mitigating crew seats to mitigate crew fatigue. The SPC-LE was the first joint-acquisition with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
