U.S. Coast Guard Small Craft

Most recent update: February 17, 2016.


The purpose of this table is to list the small craft (<65 feet) built for the U.S. Coast Guard, sorted by length.  It does not include boats transferred from other Government agencies or acquired from the private sector but it is still far from complete.  In addition, it only includes significant multi-boat procurements: it's too hard to track all the small lots and individual boats.  If you have any additional data or see any errors, please send your info to me at timcolton@aol.com
