The Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command awarded a $36 million contract to Brunswick Commercial and Government Products to supply as many as 60 32-foot and 37-foot Boston Whaler Justice models.
The boats will support the U.S. Southern Command’s counternarcotics assistance program within Central America and the Caribbean to counter transnational organized criminal networks in Latin America.
The boats will be supplied over a four-year period.
“We are honored to have the opportunity to fulfill this contract,” Brunswick Commercial and Government Products general manager Jennifer Butera said in a statement. “These models are fast and extremely durable — a perfect match for their mission.”
