Coastie the Safety Boat™
The 44-Inch Low Endurance Coastie Cutter class is the smallest cutter ever built for the US Coast Guard and US Coast Guard Auxiliary. It is powered by electric motors operated by remote control, and has independent directional control drive wheels. Equipped with a full duplex two-way voice system, water squirter, MP3 player, siren, and more, this cutter was introduced to the US Coast Guard and US Coast Guard Auxiliary inventory in 1997 - production is still continuing by the Robotronics Shipyard in Springville, Utah.
The entire class was modernized at Coastie Operations by Fleet Renovation and Modernization (COFRAM). The first of the class was Coastie 01 (WAUX-01) commissioned on September 2, 2000 (three years after operational startup). To date over fifty of these highly versatile and mission capable cutters operate throughout the United States Coast Guard Districts, with another fifteen operating in the Canadian provinces as part of Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary operations.
Coastie the Safety Boat is an exciting tool for teaching boat safety, Personal flotation device education (PFD), and water safety. Built exclusively by Robotronics for the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. Coastie moves, speaks, listens, plays MP3's and activates his lights, and water squirter all by remote control. He can wink, blink, and move his eyes, and will present a friendly image to young and old alike. Coastie can be used with great success in school classrooms, assemblies, harbor tours, marinas, mall displays, local and state fairs, boat shows and any other setting where you are presenting your program.
Shaped like a real Coast Guard Cutter, Coastie is the ideal symbol for your flotilla. He is just the right size for teaching children. He can communicate with them at their eye level and when he moves he's not at all threatening. He's perfect for hugs and kisses from small friends, and with his spotlight and siren, he is highly visible. He will make your public relations program both fun and effective, and will help teach valuable water safety concepts to children.
