Fincantieri Marinette Marine awarded additional response boats for Jordan
The two boats are part of a Foreign Military Sale to The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Delivery is scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2017.
This award brings the total number of RB-M’s to 176 built by Team RB-M, originally formed by FMM and Kvichak Marine. FMM will act as the Prime Contractor and Program Manager.
The new boats will be upgraded for the Jordanian Navy’s specific mission requirements and the challenging operational environment.
These two vessels will be constructed by Vigor in one of its Seattle, Washington Facilities. ■
