Safe Boats International builds rapid response craft at their facility at the Bremerton Airport. SAFE Boats is a major supplier to the U.S. Coast Guard’s (USCG) small boats fleet. The USCG uses SAFE vessels for diverse missions including homeland security, patrol, maritime law enforcement, marine environmental protection, search and rescue, and aids to navigation.
In addition to SAFE Boats’ facilities located in Bremerton, vessels larger than 44-feet are produced in their Large Craft Production Facility (LCPF), located in the Port of Tacoma, Washington. Originally developed to build ships for the US Navy during WWII , the LCPF provides production space as well as house offices for administration, engineering, operations and service personnel directly supporting large craft production. The facility provides ideal location to produce, launch, test and support large craft.
