South Florida-based FB Marine Group, a marine sales and service dealership, said it was awarded a large government contract to refurbish, refinish and repower two coastal patrol boats for Miami-Dade County and PortMiami.

FB Marine Group has been a preferred service provider for Miami-Dade County since 2012.

Once completed, the 28-foot aluminum, chambered boats will patrol PortMiami. According to a 2015 census report, Miami-Dade County is the most populous county in Florida and the seventh most populous county in the United States.

“Our team of experts is ready to deliver the high-quality products and services we are known for on these two very important projects,” FB Marine Group managing partner Kim Sweers said in a statement.

“We’ve long been a service provider to numerous government agencies, and we’re confident that these boats will be better than new once completed, ready to help protect the citizens of Miami-Dade and serve the county for many years to come.”
