4 Video

This Vietnam era PBR was one of ten originally built by Uniflite in 1972 and was completely rebuilt between 1996 and 1999.

The boat has two 6V53 N  Detroit Diesel engines with under 2000 hours,  a new fuel system, 2 X 82 gallon fuel tanks, and a complete, original MK-56- Mod-0 twin mount, ser. #21.

Converted to propeller drive, this boat is fully Coast Guard compliant, and is now located  in N. Carolina, and has participated in several historical displays with the US. Navy’s Coastal Riverine Forces, Special Boat Unit 20 and Seal Team 10 in the Norfolk, Little Creek, VA area.

This boat is similar to the PBR as seen in the movie “Apocalypse Now”,  and is equipped  with three .50 cal. gas firing MG’s,  one  replica M-60,  one M-16 training rifle, flak jackets, steel helmet’s, the correct working VRC- 49 military radio set ,  as well as a working Raytheon Pathfinder 2600 original model radar set.

Also included is a custom made Road King 24,000 lb. triple axle trailer made  in the original Navy design, with pintle eye for towing, and guide-on’s for centering boat on trailer.
