USA: Invincible Boat Company Receives Coastal Interceptor Vessels Contract

Invincible Boat Company Receives Coastal Interceptor Vessels Contract

Invincible Boat Company  is being awarded a Firm Fixed Price (FFP) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract. Amount of the contract is $45,727,168.00 for a period of performance of one base year and four – one year option periods for up to 70 Coastal Interceptor Vessels.

An initial order was awarded in the amount of $708,052.00.

This contract was competitively procured through an electronic request for proposals where ten offers were received. The United States Customs and Border Protection, Washington DC., is the contracting activity.

Coastal Interceptor Vessel (CIV)

The mission of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Air and Marine (OAM) is to protect the American people and the Nation’s critical infrastructure through the coordinated use of integrated air and marine assets. To ensure CBP/OAM marine forces have the vessels to detect, interdict, and prevent acts of terrorism and the unlawful movement of people, illegal drugs, and other contraband toward or across the borders of the United States the requirement for a Coastal Interceptor Vessel (CIV) is apparent.

The CIV will be a law enforcement variant of a commercially available vessel that is currently in production and can be configured based on CBP/OAM requirements as specified in this request for proposal (RFP).  Proposed equipment shall be commercially available, operationally viable (demonstrable), easily upgradeable and fully supportable (parts, technical assistance, etc.) for up to 5 years beyond the delivery date of the vessel.  To reduce program costs and risk, the contractor shall propose non-developmental items, commercial-off-the-shelf equipment to the maximum extent possible.

To accomplish the maritime interdiction mission, the CIV will be required to operate in littoral coastal waters and in offshore areas of the United States and its territories in varying sea and weather conditions. The CIV will be used for patrol, interdiction, special operations, port security support, and to pursue suspect vessels for the purpose of delivering Agents to conduct boardings, searches, and when necessary, arresting violators and seizing vessels and/or contraband.  The CIV will support and operate with other Federal agencies in and outside of DHS, state, and local agencies for both law enforcement and/or emergency response/management.

Invincible Boat Company is owned by the South Floridian Alex Lipworth. The company was formed to design and build a “perfect” boat for both the tournament angler who needed speed and for the light tackle guide who wanted fishability.

Invincible contacted renowned naval architect Michael Peters and laid out what they wanted to accomplish. The result is a boat that is both fast and dry. THE INVINCIBLE’S performance in rough water is outstanding. The deck was designed to fight fish. No pulpits, no bulky gunwales or low decks. Two oversized live wells make the boat more fishable. Rugged construction was required because they knew what tournament fishermen would put their boats through. Finally, it has the fit and finish of the finest boats while having the price that most could afford.
The result is a boat that is unequalled. It’s fast- very fast. It’s extremely dry and built with the latest technology and best materials in the boating industry. The INVINCIBLE is a true tournament boat that has set a new standard in the marine industry.
