All 174 response boats-medium have been delivered. The RB-M program transferred full responsibility for supporting the boats to the sustainment community June 1, 2015. The program will continue warranty execution and contract closeout until 2017.
The RB-M is designed for multiple missions, including search and rescue; law enforcement; drug and migrant interdiction; and ports, waterways and coastal security. The boats feature increased speed, greater maneuverability, and a climate-controlled cabin and shock-mitigating seats to reduce crew fatigue on extended patrols.
