This rebuilt Boston Whaler 25' Guardian located in Mass, is not to be missed. She is approved for 2012 HIN designation.
Completely rebuilt to exacting standards, (See Video of the construction from what she was to what she is), this is the tough TPSB used in many an armed engagement scenario. See the description below of the original purpose behind this very special Whaler that has now been converted into one of the finest fishing machines you can buy.
The 25 ft (8 m) Transportable Port Security Boat (TPSB): (AKA The Guardian) is a twin outboard motor, open deck, all weather, high performance, moderately-armed platform capable of operating in inner harbor/near shore environments in light sea conditions. It was first built in FY97 by Boston Whaler, in Edgewater, Florida, for the U.S. Coast Guard Maintenance and Logistic Command. The 25 ft (8 m) TPSB is designed and configured to support Port Security Units as an inshore/harbor surface interdiction response asset in accordance with Required Operational Capabilities (ROC) and Projected Operational Environment (POE) for Coast Guard Port Security Units (PSU), COMDTINST 3501.49 (series). The basic design is based on the standard Boston Whaler 25 ft (8 m) Guardian hull, customized to functionally suit the TPSB mission requirements. The basic craft arrangements consist of a centrally positioned control console and leaning post with an open work deck and low non-obstructive gunwhales. The TPSB is outfitted as a military gunboat with three (3) hardened weapon positions: (1) forward .50 caliber (12.7 mm) tri-pod, (2) gunwhale - mounted 7.62 mm M240B Machine Gun pipe pedestals, port and starboard.
OK, this one doesn't come armed like that, but it does come armed with all the requisite fishing equipment - Top Gun Outrigger Set, Kodiak Large Tuna Tubes, Cannon Mag 20 DT Downriggers, rod holders, rocket launchers and more.
This is a real beauty and you won't find many (any?) like it.
