A Tradition of Honor - A Legacy of Action

 SENECA is the sixth of thirteen 270' Famous Class medium endurance cutters in the United States Coast Guard fleet.  Home ported in Boston's historic North End, SENECA moors within a short walk of such landmarks as the Old North Church, Faneuil Hall, USS CONSTITUTION, and TD Garden - Home of the Celtics and Bruins.

Our primary missions are homeland security, fisheries law enforcement, counter drug law enforcement, alien migration interdiction operations, and search and rescue.  Missions range from protecting and enforcing laws for America's three billion dollar living marine resources economy to deploying in support of Joint Inter-Agency Task Force-South to intercept "narco-terrorists" in the Caribbean Sea and East Pacific Ocean.

SENECA's keel was laid on September 16, 1982 and was formally commissioned into service on May 9, 1987. Our ship is named after the original SENECA, which was commissioned in 1908 and served as one of the first ice patrol cutters, escorted Atlantic convoys during WWI, and enforced prohibition, finishing her commissioned service in 1936.
