BREMERTON — Safe Boats International, local maker of fast security boats, has begun delivery of 37 vessels to the Navy.

The boats are 33 feet in length and will be used at Navy installations all over the world, according to the online publication The Marine Executive. The vessels are capable of going 33 knots.

The model is a new interpretation of the Force Protection-Medium patrol craft. It has a capability for thermal imaging and sending encrypted communications. Two outboard engines power it.

“We’ve had a great relationship with our Navy for a long time. It is a great feeling to provide them with Safe Boats that they can rely on to protect our fleet and harbors for years to come,” said Safe Boats Chief Executive Officer Scott Peterson.

Safe Boats is located in the Olympic View Industrial Park off Highway 3 near Bremerton National Airport.
