Over the past 30 years, Bollinger has established a highly successful business model developing high performance U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Navy patrol vessels, based on superior designs available in the worldwide patrol boat and naval vessel marketplace. Our in-house staffs of naval architects and marine engineers tailor these innovative international designs to rigorous U. S. Government requirements resulting in an affordable, low risk "parent craft” design that is proven in-service.
Bollinger has successfully utilized this parent craft design model to deliver over one hundred thirty-eight (138) patrol boats to the USCG and USN, since 1985. These high-performance patrol boats range in size from 87 feet to 179 feet with top speeds ranging from 25 knots to 35 knots. Bollinger built patrol boats are designed to operate and survive through sea state five conditions and meet NAVSEA standards for two compartment damaged stability.
The patrol boats have a range of personnel from as little as 10 to as much as 39 mixed gender crew and passengers. All patrol boats are equipped with conventional propulsion systems ranging from 2,900 BHP (total) to 14,400 BHP (total).
The fire power on these vessels range from twin 50 caliber machine guns to twin stabilized 25MM guns. The larger patrol boat is equipped with armor plating.
