CCGS Pennant Bay

CCGS Pennant Bay joined the Canadian Coast Guard fleet in December 2017, the first of twenty high endurance search and rescue lifeboats to be built under the National Shipbuilding Strategy and as part of the Canadian Coast Guard’s fleet renewal planning. Informally referred to as “Bay Class” vessels, each one is named after a Canadian bay.

These 19 metre, 75 gross tonne vessels have cruising speeds of 14 and a half knots, and top speeds of 23 and a half knots. They are high-endurance vessels capable of traveling 120 nautical miles offshore, with the ability to self-right if capsized.

The CCGS Pennant Bay’s home port is St. Anthony, Newfoundland and Labrador.
