Inspired by the rough waters and rocky shores of the Puget Sound, we wanted to completely rethink boat design from the human experience because the most stressful part about a boat, is actually being on the boat. Our mission is to provide the brave men and women in uniform with the most reliable boats that allow them to complete their mission, save lives, and protect freedom around the world. Founded in 1996, SAFE Boats International designs and builds highly reliable and extremely durable vessels that help keep military and first responders safe as they carry out their duties, protect citizens and work to save lives. Headquartered just outside Seattle, Washington in the city of Bremerton, SAFE Boats is 100 percent American owned and operated. And, in case you were wondering, the company was named for its pioneering wrap-around collar design:'Secure'Around'Flotation'Equipped.' ''
