The Cape Class Patrol Boat Pedigree

A successful range of vessels is a constant evolution of an existing design from in-service experience coupled with modifications and improvements using advances in technology. Each new design is a step by step improvement over the previous design to ensure the client receives the most advanced possible design available.
