Responding World-Wide

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.
