The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) just got more ‘teeth’ in the pursuit of its mandate to protect the Filipino people.

These boats are the Yamaha High Speed Boat 1202, and were specifically designed for law enforcement missions. These are said to be made in Japan. 

Both boats, together with it's essential equipment and trailer, were turned over to the PCG last 13 February 2019.

The Yamaha HSB 1202 is 12.16 meters long, has a beam of 2.75 meters, can accommodate 7 people, and can run over 50 knots. It also has a range of 200 nautical miles at 35 knots.

The Japanese government provided these boats, as part of their commitments to assist the Philippine Coast Guard improve it's capabilities.

Last year, the PCG was also a recipient of 10 units of 7-meter Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIB), also coming from the Japanese government. PCG reportedly has started using these assets in protecting our internal maritime domain.
