Recently added to our International Fleet was the building and delivery of two new 7000 Patrol Series boats for the Gwadar Port Authority in Pakistan. These boats will be dual purpose to aid in Security for the Port as well as provide, as required, Oceanic Survey and Mapping Services of the sea-bed and structure.
With enclosed cabins, air-conditioning and a range of over 250 nm, these Patrol Boats can comfortably remain within the port area for long periods of time to offer support, crew transfer and detailed Survey as required.
Built and delivered inside 8 weeks in total the boats were delivered with trailers to give them mobility as required to operate in outlying areas if needed. The mandate of 16 knots top speed and great economy was easily accounted for with twin 90 hp Suzuki 4-strokes, offering a top speed of 24 knots and an exceptionally long range at cruise.
