Hybrid Designs are a distinctive set of vessels that do not fall within the confines of a SAFE standard boat line. SAFE offers these configurations and others to meet unique mission requirements of our customers.
Riverine Command Boat (RPB)
The Riverine Command Boat (RCB) is a fully enclosed platform designed to conduct command and control, tactical mobility and fire support operations in hostile riverine and littoral (near-shore) environments. The RCB is powered by twin diesel engines mated to water jets and equipped with key features that include an insertion and extraction bow door, reconfigurable mission space, manned/unmanned weapon mounts, an elective chemical weapons air filtration system, and optional armor. These design features, combined with sea, air and land transportability, make the RCB a one-of-a-kind multi-mission platform.
The Riverine Patrol Boat (RPB) is an advanced multi-mission platform designed to provide tactical mobility and fire support in opposed riverine and littoral environments. The RPB's combat-proven design is comprised of a shallow draft hull, twin inboard diesel engines, water jets, actuated bow door, machine gun mounts and optional armor. The RPB is ship-to-shore capable and transportable by fixed wing, rotary wing, and prime mover. It delivers significant capabilities in austere shallow water environments.
