Offshore Patrol Cutter - Building the 21st Century Coast Guard
The Offshore Patrol Cutter (OPC) is critical to the future of the Coast Guard’s offshore fleet and will replace the service’s aging fleet of medium endurance cutters, some that are in excess of 50 years old. The Coast Guard awarded a contract to Eastern Shipbuilding Group, Inc., of Panama City, Florida, Sept. 15, 2016, for the production of the lead OPC and up to eight follow-on cutters. The OPC is a pivotal element to our Western Hemisphere Strategy. The Coast Guard interdicts more illegal drugs than all other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies combined. A key element of our offshore enforcement strategy is the presence of flight deck-capable ships with a robust communications suite and sea-keeping ability, capable of operating in the farthest reaches of the drug transit zone. The OPC is designed to fill this need. (Eastern Shipbuilding image)
