Fincantieri Marinette Marine (FMM) said it has been awarded a U.S. Coast Guard contract for two additional Response Boats-Medium (RB-Ms) vessels as part of a Foreign Military Sale to The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

This award brings the total number of RB-Ms to 176 built by Team RB-M, originally formed by FMM and Kvichak Marine. FMM will act as the prime contractor and program manager, and the vessels will be built by Vigor at its Ballard, Wash. facility (formerly Kvichak Marine).

The new boats will be upgraded for the Jordanian Navy's specific mission requirements and the challenging operational environment. "The vessel's proven track record, performance and flexibility make it an excellent platform for near shore security," said Jan Allman, President and CEO of FMM.

Delivery is scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2017.
