Ten new High-Speed Patrol Boats for the Cyprus police
Tuesday 14 march, 2023
A new ten-boat contract was signed in Nicosia, Cyprus on March 1st in the presence of our local agent and the Government of Cyprus.
The boats are designed for several operational needs for example patrolling, sea rescue, special missions, and coast guard. The boats will patrol the coastal areas of Cyprus and territorial waters up to 24 nautical miles from the nearest shore.
The Kewatec SAR 850 is a self-righting monohull boat (DEEP-V), 8.5 meters long and 3.2 meters wide, surrounded by closed-cell foam-filled fender. The boat has twin Mercury V10 350 hp outboard engines, which are a new series from Mercury Marine. The Kewatec SAR 850 is extensively equipped, modern, and fast.
The new agreement is significant for Kewatec, setting a new milestone for Mediterranean deliveries. Production of several identical boats brings efficiency and new production philosophy. The boats will be manufactured at our Porvoo shipyard.
