Product Information

Knowing that patrolling coastal and river waterways during a conflict in Vietnam was going to be extremely hazardous, the U.S. Navy searched for a boat design that could be quickly produced and employed. One chosen was a fiberglass-hulled pleasure craft built by Modutec Marine in Seattle Washington.

  • The Patrol Boat, River or PBR as it was known militarily, became one of the most successful weapons systems used in Southeast Asia.
  • It was 31' 11" long ; 11; 7" wide, and 9'9" high above the waterline.
  • It displaced 8 3/4 tons loaded drawing two feet of water.
  • It's crew of four was armed with a pair of .50 cal gun or grenade launcher mounted on a tripod in the fantail, plus a single M-60 on a pipe mount bolted to one of the amidships splinter shields.
  • It was powered by two turbocharged Detroit Diesel 205 HP, V-6 marine engines, driving a pair of Jaccuzzi 14JY water jetdrives.
  • The engines were located underneath the aft decking, and the boat was steered by two movable nozzles below the water line, mounted on the rear transom.
  • The water intakes were located on the hull bottom.
  • It had a top speed in excess of 25 knots.
  • Surface radar and two-way radio equipment provided communication and maneuvering safety.
