Hollyhock was built by Marinette Marine Corporation and launched on January 25, 2003. The Hollyhock is currently assigned to Port Huron, Michigan as its home port. Hollyhock replaced the previous cutter stationed in Port Huron, the USCGC Bramble (WLB-392), which retired after 60 years of service. Hollyhock was named after a previous cutter of the same name that served the USCG from 1937 to 1982.
Hollyhock is designed as a multi-mission vessel, with its missions being Aids to Navigation, Icebreaking, Search and Rescue, Homeland Security, Law Enforcement, and Marine Environmental Protection.
