US Coast Guard issues cutter boat RFI

The US Coast Guard has released a request for proposal (RFP) for the design, construction and support of a new fleet of cutter boats.

The new boats will replace the current fleet of 36 cutter boats that currently operate aboard the service’s 210-foot medium endurance cutters, 225-foot seagoing buoy tenders, and Coast Guard cutters Alex Haley and Mackinaw.

The Coast Guard said it plans to award one firm fixed-price indefinite delivery, indefinite contract that includes a minimum initial delivery order of two CB-Ls and associated outfit, parts and logistics information.

The contract allows for the acquisition of up to 46 boats over five years, including potential foreign military sales, and is worth a total maximum value of $20 million.

“The existing boats on these four classes of cutters are no longer sustainable, since the manufacturer went out of business. The new CB-L will meet this operational need,” said Cmdr. David Obermeier, deputy program manager for boats acquisition.

Proposals are due March 2 and the RFI is available here.
