Boston Whaler & Navy SEALs Dating Back to Vietnam
Boston Whaler was the SEAL Team SIX boat of choice for conducting ship boarding operations from 1979-1984.
During 1967 and 1968 the MST-2 detachment at Nah Be used modified 14-foot Boston Whalers and 17-foot Power Cat boats for both day and night operations. MST boat crews frequently intercepted and checked out sampans (Vietnamese watercraft) for supplies being smuggled. These boats were also called “Skimmers.” They had good speed, but limited endurance, no armor, and virtually no armament other than that carried by the crew and passengers. The boats utilized 35-hp gasoline engines, and could attain a speed of 28+ knots.
