Parnership for Bahrain patrol boats

BMT : 10 September, 2013  (Application Story)
18 metre patrol boats constructed from advanced composite materials to be built by BMT partnership for the Bahrain Coast Guard
Parnership for Bahrain patrol boats

BMT Nigel Gee (BMT) has announced its latest partnership with Ares Shipyard to design and build six 18m patrol boats from advanced composites, for the Bahrain Coast Guard which have a maximum design speed in excess of 35 knots. The contract also has an option for an additional six vessels.

Undertaking the full detailed design including hull form optimisation, structural design and machinery layout, BMT’s team of naval architects has worked closely with the shipyard to develop a design which meets the customer’s explicit desire to maximise living space below decks, as well as create an operationally effective vessel.

Kerim Kalafatoglu, Managing Director of Ares Shipyard explains: “Developing a vessel that far exceeds the customer’s expectations in both looks and more importantly, performance, could only be made possible through the harmonious partnership between BMT and Ares Shipyard.”

Commenting on the project John Bonafoux, BMT Nigel Gee’s Managing Director, said: “We are pleased to be supporting Ares Shipyard with the design of this high performance patrol boat which yet again demonstrates our expertise in specialist vessel design.  We have worked with Ares on a number of recent projects and given the growth in the market for such specialist types of vessels, we hope to develop this relationship further.”

Sea trials are expected to take place at the end of September 2013.
