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.
