Foreign Military Sales Assets: 42-foot Fast Response Boat

Home > International Acquisition > FMS Assets

Department of Homeland Security 42'

The 42-foot Fast Response Boat (FRB) combines the agility of a response boat with benefits of a larger patrol ship. Equipped with dual 565 horsepower Caterpillar diesel engines, the FRB can operate in heavy weather with a maximum speed of 40 knots. It features a forward berth, complete with head and optional galley. Hamilton waterjets give the FRB an amazingly shallow 30-inch draft, allowing it to operate in areas smaller outboard boats fear to go. The independently controlled jets allow for mobility and precision control unmatched by other configurations. These features combine to make the FRB an ideal multi-use addition to any boat fleet.
