The Coast Guard released a request for information (RFI) Dec. 7 to gather information in preparation for the over the horizon V cutter boat acquisition.
The planned vessel is a standard configuration boat up to 26 feet long, which is capable of performing missions that require projection of Coast Guard capabilities beyond the parent cutter. It will operate in day and night; in a spectrum of climates, weather conditions and sea states.
The anticipated scope of the contract is near 200 boats delivered over a 10-year-period.
The RFI is available here. The deadline to submit responses is Dec. 14 at 12 p.m. EST.
