The M36-class inshore patrol boats T114 and T115 were built by the Marsun Co shipyard at the mouth of the Chao Phraya River. The Navy said they will be used to provide safety to HM the King and the royal family, and for surveillance, protection of fishing and cargo vessels, and to combat marine terrorism.

Each boat is 36 meters long, 7.6 meters wide, and boasts a top speed of 27 knots fully laden with an operating range of 1,200 nautical miles. The boats come armed with a main gun, a 30mm machine gun mounted on the bow, and two .50-calibre gunwale machineguns.

The M36-class patrol boats have been built by Marsun Company and are intended to serve the maritime patrol requirements of the Royal Thai Navy (RTN). The concept of a military-style patrol boat on a commercial hull platform was developed with the engineering departments of Marsun Shipyard and the Royal Thai Navy.
