Classification: These craft are also designated as Special Warfare Craft, Medium (SWCM).  The Naval Systems Command designates these craft as PB Mk 3l however, they are listed as Mk III in the Fleet.

Design:  The Mk III is a modified commercial craft used to support offshore drilling platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.  These craft are of all-aluminum construction with their pilot house offset to starboard to provide maximum deck space for weapons and equipment.  The craft has low radar cross-section and quiet engines for clandestine operations.  Mission duration is up to five days.
