The Coast Guard in Buffalo, N.Y., recently added a faster and more sophisticated vessel.

The new 45-foot response boat-medium is faster than previous boats of its size with a top speed of more than 40 knots, Coast Guard Station Buffalo said in a statement.

Built by Marinette Marine of Manitowoc, Wis., the boat also has increased search capability with a technologically advanced infrared system and can respond in shallower water because of its twin jet propulsion system.

The deep-V, double-chine hull is designed to right itself if it capsizes in rough seas. The boat can handle heavy seas and waves as high as 12 feet and carry as many as 25 people. The Coast Guard station took delivery of the boat last week.

The boat “really increases our capabilities,” Petty Officer 1st Class Thomas D’Amore, executive petty officer of the station, said in a statement. “With increased technology we are able to respond quicker to a better-defined location.”
