Newest Coast Guard cutter pulls into Boston Harbor

The Coast Guard’s latest 418-foot cutter James (WSML 754) entered Boston Harbor on Monday.

The James is the fifth of eight planned national security cutters – the largest and most technologically advanced class of cutters in the Coast Guard’s fleet. The cutters’ design provides better sea-keeping, higher sustained transit speeds, greater endurance and range, and the ability to launch and recover small boats from astern, as well as aviation support facilities and a flight deck for helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles.
