USCG Cutter James Christened with Champagne Splash

The U.S. Coast Guard’s fifth cutter James (WMSL 754) was officially christened by Charlene James Benoit on Saturday, August 16, 2014, at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula.


The ceremony gathered Coast Guard leaders and other guests.

The cutter is one of eight planned Legend-class ships, which will replace the 378-foot Hamilton-class cutters of the 1960s. This 418-foot ship can reach a top speed of 28 knots with a range of 12,000 miles. She is capable to accommodate 110 crew members and has endurance of 60 days at sea.

Her expertise is drug interdiction, law enforcement, search and rescue, environmental protection and national defense missions.
