Australian Designed Catamaran Patrol Boat for Royal Thai Police

ThaiCatamaranPB_IncatCrowther

MarineLink reports the delivery of two locally built catamaran patrol boats to the Royal Thai Police, based on an earlier Australian designed vessel.

  • Length Overall: 86’ / 26.2m
  • Max Speed: 34 knots
  • Crew: 2 + 12

Actually these sound an awful lot like 19 new 26 meter ferries being built by Horizon Shipbuilding, Inc., Bayou La Batre, AL, and Metal Shark Aluminum Boats, Jeanerette, LA for New York City also designed by Incat Crowther.

  1. They look very cool, if that’s a useful observation.

    I’ll take a baker’s dozen for patrolling the English Channel. Should be able to fit a ScanEagle catapult on that big foredeck.
