For those of us who are not used to life at sea, pirates might look like jolly, eccentric characters that go about their business drinking rum and talking to their parrot sidekicks. In the real world, however, pirates represent a real threat especially for commercial vessels, which is why coastguard forces need powerful speedboats in order to bring them to justice.
This endless battle between the police and criminal organizations might go back and forth on land, but on sea, the coast guard has a very important ace up its sleeve: the XRS Military Interceptor. This quick and agile vessel is the nightmare of any pirate ship, since it can outrun and outmaneuver pretty much anything out there. Thanks to a mix of raw power and a fully composite monocoque structure, the XRS can reach speeds of up to 85 knots or 97 mph, while its shock absorbing seats ensure the captain’s comfort during long and tumultuous chases. Furthermore, if push comes to shove, this menacing speedboat is equipped with a .50 caliber machine gun. Running away is not an option either, since the XRS boasts a range of 1,000 nautical miles.
