It’s no accident that Munson Response Boats are currently in use by hundreds of the world’s leading marine spill response organizations. We offer a full range of pollution control vessels that are adaptable to numerous marine spill scenarios. Bill Munson’s original landing craft design was developed over 40 years ago as a multi-purpose oil spill response platform.
The Munson landing craft design is one of the most effective vessels at performing the many tasks that an oil spill presents. Without quick & effective oil spill response, our coastlines would be in much greater peril. The brave men and women that do battle with these unfortunate occurrences, along with their specialized equipment and know-how, are the last line of defense against the potentially devastating effects of a spill.

Our clients say it best…
“It was a pleasure visiting with you and Jon today to observe the progress of MSRC’s workboats. It is hard to believe that this 42-boat, 4-year project is coming to a close with the delivery of the final 10 boats this year. From my prospective, as MSRC’s program manager for this major boat building project, it has been an exceptionally well executed project and it has been a personal pleasure for me to work with Bill, Jon and yourself during the last 4 years.”
