The inventory is 99.9% accurate; unfortunately, the sail is missing, so I had to substitute it with the closest match I managed to find on Mecabricks.

Even most of the decals are present—only two green stickers for the sailboat from the sheet are missing, plus the dinghy has 4's instead of 7's on it, as it came from a different Coast Guard set.

This set no. 60168 'Sailboat Rescue' came out in July 2017 as part of the City's "Coast Guard" subtheme. The '17 lineup represented the Coast Guard's third generation in Lego CITY—as it only became an "official" subtheme in 2008. But the Coast Guard logo itself has a much longer history and had been regularly appearing in various other LEGO System subthemes for over 30 years! (See a bit more detailed timeline below).

The model features two vessels—a civilian yacht, based on a two-piece 8x28x3 boat hull (Lego part #92710c0X) that "crashes" over a rocky riff and a Coast Guard's 10x22x3 rubber dinghy rushing to the rescue. Both of the boats can float on water.

=COAST GUARD HISTORY=
There were at least five distinct generations of various Coast Guard sets before it finally became an official CITY's subtheme in 2008:

-------- =1st GENERATION: LEGOLAND Era= --------

1). [1976] 369: Coast Guard Station
The earliest model came with five old-style "hands-in-pockets" LEGOLAND minifigs.

2). [1978] 575: Coast Guard Station
A very similar, slightly larger set but with upgraded, 1st-gen modern minifigures.

3). [1989] 6387: Coastal Rescue Base
The first model that featured a Coast Guard logo (blue shield with a red-n-white lifebuoy) came out as part of the LEGOLAND Town collection.

-------- =2nd GENERATION: Classic Town Era= --------
From 1991 till '96, Coast Guard migrated between various Town subthemes. The list doesn't include brief "cameos" and appearances in "Paradisa" and "Flight" subthemes (that only featured Coast Guard decals).

4). [1991] 6353: Coastal Cutter
https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/9P2kAoWevon
The earliest Coast Guard marine vessel came out as part of a short-lived "Nautica" / "Harbor" theme.

5). ['93] 6342: Beach Rescue Chopper
https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/VzvMyZK6vJp
It was a 5-6th Lego rescue helicopter, part of a Town's "Flight" subtheme; featured Coast Guard logos.

6). ['95] 6338: Hurricane Harbor
https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/VzvMyV7RvJp
A follow-up to the '89 Rescue Base, the newest Coast Guard headquarters retained the same palette (but reversed) and came with a decent park of vehicles: a helicopter, a speedboat, and an SUV.

7). ['96] 4022: C26 Sea Cutter
The first of a few floating Coast Guard boats, this model used a large, one-piece hull. It was released as part of the dedicated "Boats" theme.

-------- =3rd GENERATION: Res-Q= --------
This theme is technically related to the "Rescue" lineage rather than "Coast Guard," but quite a few sets closely overlapped with common Coast Guard subjects. Overall, eight "Res-Q" sets came out in '98-99.

8. [1998] 6479: Emergency Response Center
https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/07vNg7y3aAm

-------- =4th GENERATION: Simplified Builds= --------
In 1997, Lego radically simplified the entire Town, effectively ending the theme's "golden" era. Coast Guard, along with "Police" and "Fire," suffered the most from this transition—for the next 3-4 years, there weren't any other versions of Coast Guard vehicles and structures besides the so-called "juniorized" sets.

9). [1999] 6435: Coast Guard HQ
Included a boat that floats on water. This set still came out in the "Town" theme—among the last ones.

10). ['99] 6433: Coastwatch
Another floating boat, this one already released within a short-lived "City Center" theme (that briefly replaced "juniorized" Town).

-------- =5th GENERATION: World City= --------
In 2003, Lego launched World City, designated as a new "global" city life theme. It didn't last for long, though, replaced in just two years by today's CITY, but still featured a decent lineup with a few subthemes: "Trains," "Police," and "Coast Watch." Despite a very different color palette, World City's "Coast Watch" sported the rebranded Coast Guard logo.

11). [2003] 7047: Coast Watch HQ
https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/07vNy3n7jAm

-------- =6th GENERATION: Official CITY's subtheme= --------
In 2008, "Coast Guard" finally became an official subtheme in a still relatively new CITY. The debut release featured eight sets. Coast Guard didn't have headquarters in this generation.

12). [2008] 7739: Coast Guard Patrol Boat & Tower

In 2013, the "Coast Guard" theme was upgraded, with five more sets released. Again, the collection didn't have a ground base:

13). ['13] 60014: Coast Guard Patrol
Clocking at 450 parts and 6 minifigs, this set featured a massive floating boat.
