“Austal Delivers Two Cape-Class Patrol Boats To Trinidad And Tobago Coast Guard” –Naval News

Naval News reports the delivery of two Cape Class patrol boats to the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard.

“The two 58 metre patrol boats, TTS Port of Spain (CG41) and TTS Scarborough (CG42), were accepted by Lieutenant Commander Francise Paulette Cazoe of the TTCG, at a delivery ceremony held at Austal Australia’s Henderson shipyard today, attended by Western Australia Minister for Minister for Police: Road Safety; Defence Industry; and Veterans Issues, The Hon Paul Papalia CSC MLA.”

The Cape class is also used by the Australian Navy and Border Force. This is the first export of the class.

My August 2019 post, reporting the order for these vessels, provides specifications and compares them with the Webber class WPCs.

  1. The TTCG loves Austal products. I do too, but in my opinion, anything this big needs a helicopter deck. The aft arrangement could have been modified, or they could have gone with the larger OPV version that the Philippines are about to get.
