Brunswick Commercial and Government Products delivered a 39-foot RIB to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Division of Law Enforcement.

The 1200 Impact model features a climate-controlled aluminum cabin and room for as many as four crewmembers. The heavy-duty fiberglass hull is surrounded by an air-filled collar to reduce the risk of damage to the boat and property during routine boat checks and docking.

The boat will be stationed in South Florida, where it will be used for patrolling offshore and Intracoastal areas, fisheries management and general law enforcement activities.
