The Fire Interceptor 9M is shown here with the standard wheelhouse designs, foam collar and optional hard-sided hull with D rubber fendering.

The cabin version provides exceptional safety via shelter for the crews providing long hours in patrol, harbor security and Force Protection.

The cabin design, has above-average headroom, yet meets road legal height restrictions for trailering. For trailered craft MCM has developed a rapid launch retrieval system.

The cabin has excellent visibility and spotter windows for coming alongside ships and high piers. The side spotter windows are designed to be at driver eye level in hard over turns. The side doors are designed for easy ingress/egress for larger operators.

This vessel is very quiet. The cabin noise at 42 knots with outboards was 76 dB.

The design includes lifting eyes for rapid cranage and shipboard lift.
