The U.S. Navy is joining forces with the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) to refit and modernize up to five of the Yard Patrol (YP) 676 class training craft.

Work will be performed at the USCG Yard in Baltimore, Maryland, and will allow the midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) to continue training onboard these craft.

The craft were originally delivered to the USNA located in Annapolis, Maryland from 1986-1988 and are continuously used to train midshipmen on piloting, seamanship, navigation, and engineering.
