  1. Westport launches Composite 43m Cutter

    Westport’s launch of the Global Response Cutter (GRC-43) from its composite patrol vessel series (CPV) represents a significant milestone while marking a return to the company’s commercial roots. The composite GRC-43 offers many advantages to the world’s Coast Guards and Navy’s over aluminum and steel builds, including but not limited to superior weight to strength/distinct thermal advantages/non-corrosive properties while in parallel significantly reducing maintenance costs/increasing operational on station time, and life cycles of the patrol vessels.

    The GRC43 was built/modeled to the US Coast Guard requirements using American Bureau of Shipbuilding (ABS) rules for high speed craft. The program’s intent is to offer a series built patrol vessel to US agencies, (Navy/Coast Guard/Special Operations/Homeland Security) and foreign military. “This is a fully executable program that ensures a high quality “off the shelf” platform ensuring the vessels predictable operation in unpredictable environments,” states Philip Purcell, Vice President of the Shipyard.

    Since 1964, Westport has taken a long-term view of the future, and invested heavily in people, design, naval architecture, infrastructure, engineering and proven technologies to secure our position at the forefront of the industry. Over the past 46 years Westport has grown to be among the most advanced and proven ship builders in the World. The Shipyard’s capabilities include designing, developing and manufacturing high quality composite patrol vessels between 15 meters and 50 meters in length, and has proudly earned a reputation for delivering on-time, on-budget, and as-promised.
