The Storebro SB90E is a small craft developed by Swedish yacht designer Storebro Bruks AB. It was initially developed for the Swedish Navy, who designated it the Stridsbåt 90 E, the E being for Enkel (Swedish for single) - shortened to Strb 90 E. It was later rebranded as the Storebro SRC90E[nb 1] for international military export and it is now exclusively sold as SB90E for the civilian market. Their classification is YH, for ambulance boat.
The SB90E was originally intended to be used as a medical evacuation vessel and simple insertion craft for the Swedish Amphibious Corps, with 60 ordered and 54 delivered; today only 5 remain in Swedish military service, with the rest being scrapped, sold off or in the case of 7 vessels, donated to the civilian Swedish Sea Rescue Society (Svenska Sjöräddningssällskapet). In most cases the duties intended for the Strb 90 E have been taken over by the Strb 90 H.
