overview

Swiftships’ 11 Meter Riverine Assault Craft (RAC) is a diesel powered, hard chine, and modified V hull form, all-aluminum craft with twin water jet propulsions. It is designed to operate in both salt and fresh water, and to operate in Sea State 2 and survive in Sea State 4. The craft is capable of operating in tropical regions with assured top performance in air temperatures up to 100° Fahrenheit. It has a low profile suitable for ready concealment along riverbanks. This craft has an optional trailer and truck, and may be transported through military aircraft. It is designed to MIL-STD 209j and can be inserted or extracted using Marine External Air Transport (MEAT). This process allows the craft to be plucked out of water and repositioned if so required for safety or for tactical advantage. With a speed of up to 50 knots, extreme maneuverability, and high survivability, the 11-meter RAC is an ideal platform for command and control, armed escort, direct fire support, troop transport, pursuit, interception, scouting, and patrol maneuvers in a riverine environment, in harbors, and around offshore installations. It can transport, insert, and extract 15 combat loaded troops, excluding 4 crew members. This boat has been configured with Level 3a Ballistic Protection. An optional light weight armor package preserves break away boat speed.

Vietnam Conflict and the 'Swift Boat"

• Swiftships became a key supplier of “Swift Boats” to the US Navy during the Vietnam War.

• The mission objective of the Swift Boat was to provide the Navy with a fast boat that could patrol the many miles of river shores for enemy soldiers − The Swiftships’ Patrol Boat allowed navigation of short river channels that were inaccessible to most small boat designs at the time.

• Swiftships delivered 193 patrol boats to the US Navy throughout the conflict, creating a reputation as an excellent and trusted supplier of shallow water hulls.
