North Sea Boats to Launch New 63m Stealth Fast Missile Patrol Vessel for Indonesian Navy

The new 63 metre long vessel is a cutting edge trimaran design that is considered to be the most advanced naval vessel of its type ever built in South East Asia.

It incorporates a radical wave piercing hull form for improved seaworthiness and stability, and has been built from full carbon fibre composite materials, utilising the vacuum infusion process and vinylester resin.

This method results in a structure that has increased strength, but also offers the benefits of lower operating,
maintenance, and lifecycle costs.
