ADSB launches first UAE-made 16m,12m fast patrol boats at NAVDEX 2021

ADSB, the regional leader in build, repair, maintenance, refit and conversion of naval and commercial vessels, unveiled a 16m and a 12m fast patrol boat (FPB) which were both fully designed and built in the UAE by ADSB, and launched on the first day of NAVDEX 2021 which took place along-side IDEX at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, 21-25 February.

The 16m boat is modular in design to accommodate either a short cabin with space for surface-to-surface missile systems or a longer one for troop transport. In both cases, it is armoured to the customer’s preference, with guns ranging from manually operated 12.7mm to a 30mm cannon mounted onto a remote weapon station. The 16m boat was built to meet requirements for the Coast Guard Forces and can additionally feature ‘self-righting’ technology that helps the boat turn if it capsized.
