210-foot Reliance class


Length: 210 feet
Beam: 34 feet
Sustained Speed: 18 knots
Range: 6,100 nautical miles at 12 knots
Armament: One Mk .38 25 mm cannon and two .50-caliber machine guns
The reliance-class cutters work alongside the famous-class ships, carry out primarily law enforcement and search and rescue missions.

The 210-foot ships were the first true post-World War II Coast Guard cutters. From 1986 to 1996, ships of this class underwent a midlife maintenance availability to upgrade machinery and equipment. The offshore patrol cutters will replace the service's 210-foot endurance cutters.
