About SAFE

Committed to helping those in uniform complete their missions


Founded in 1996, SAFE Boats International (SAFE) designs and builds highly reliable and extremely durable vessels that help keep military, law enforcement and fire professionals safe as they carry out their duties, protect citizens and work to save lives.

Headquartered just outside Seattle, Washington in the city of Bremerton, SAFE Boats is 100 percent American owned and operated. The company was named for its pioneering wrap-around collar design: Secure Around Flotation Equipped.

A dedicated team of designers, engineers, project managers, builders, craftsmen and trainers work as an integrated team to build every SAFE vessel. Many of these professionals have extensive field experience. In addition to delivering high-performing and durable vessels, SAFE also provides customers with outstanding warranty, service and parts support, as well as direct access to a comprehensive in-house support network of trainers, technicians and logisticians.
