MarineLink is reporting award of a potentially $72M contract to Brunswick Commercial & Government Products (BCGP).

“The single-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract is for both 32-foot and 37-foot Boston Whaler Justice boats and will include spare parts, maintenance and training support for The United States Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) area of responsibility, which includes Central America, South America and Caribbean nations…. To date, BCGP has delivered 38, 37-foot and 17, 32-foot Boston Whaler Justice boats.”

Any one know how these are being used? Gifted to our partner nations?

  1. I did not search all the documents available but here is what I found. It looks like gifts to Central America from “””Counter Narcoterrorism Program Office”””

    Here is a PDF which has a lot of information about the contract. It does not seem to list the exact country but appendix D lists all the machine gun mounting for most central America countries and a few of the island countries in the area.

    Another document lists that Guatemala is getting at least some of them

    Here is the main page for that contract
