Following the commissioning carried out in Nort sur Erdre at Merré shipyard, the sea trials will be finalized in Nantes and the delivery would be expected in June 2018.

These are 12 meters aluminum pilot boats with optimized displacement to give these vessels an excellent power / speed ratio in order to improve the fuel consumption.

These vessels are propelled by two engines each fitted with a shaft line. The draft is less than one meter.

They are designed to carry 8 people, a crew of 3 people and 5 passengers in excellent conditions, even in bad weather and rough seas.

And they will operate in Bizerte , La Goulette, Sousse, Sfax, Gabes and Zarzis ports in Tunisia.
