Singapore Police Coast Guard Patrol Boat
The Singapore patrol boats have been designed specifically to operate at high speed with adequate stability, giving a stable and predictable ride. The hull features a wide beam to ensure a good planing area at speed, whilst also providing greater stability at rest. The design of the superstructure was kept as low and light as practical to ensure the vessels retained stability at large angles of heel. Also, the freeboard forward was sufficiently high to prevent deck immersion in extreme manoeuvres.
The Singapore Government was so satisfied that they exercised an option for a further seven vessels, after their initial order of 18.
Designed by the team at Southerly Design and built by Western Australian boat builders Strategic Marine.
