The build is 99% accurate, with only two parts missing (plus stickers). I also excluded a rubber band #71509, since there's no hook mechanism.

I always adored Lego boats, particularly non-floating ones (which are actually bricked from individual parts versus one giant mold); for some reason, I never got any large-scale models in my childhood Lego phase.

This set no. 6353 'Coastal Cutter' came out in 1991, at the dawn of the Classic Town era. The model was part of a newly-established "Nautica" subtheme in the United States. With just 185 bricks and two minifigs in the inventory, the Coastal Cutter somewhat paled in comparison to the headliner "Nautica" set, the "Launch & Load Seaport" no. 6542, which was the biggest Town model ever at the time, clocking at 1022 parts.

On the British market, the Coastal Cutter was released as 'Europort Coastguard Patrol,' and under the "Harbour" tag (without any particular branding on the box, if I understand correctly).


The boat's design is excellent, with a raised captain's deck, panoramic windows, and a neat docking mechanism for the small speedboat: a retractable hook is mounted at 90° and comes with a rubber band to secure it in the correct position. (None of that is presented here, unfortunately).

Curiously, both minifigures are actually police officers, but their uniform is covered underneath life jackets, and there aren't any Police signs on the boat, just neutral Coast Guard logos.
