Austal launches Cape class patrol boat

20th October 2014 - 13:35 GMT | by Philip Rood in Portsmouth


Australian shipbuilder Austal has launched the latest Cape class patrol boat (CCPB) for the Australian customs service.

The event took place on 17 October at Austal’s facility at the Australian Marine Complex in Henderson, Western Australia.

The 56-metre Cape Jervis is the fifth of eight ships being delivered to the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS) by Austal, which was awarded a design, build and in-service sustainment contract, valued at approximately A$330 million in August 2011. 

As prime contractor, Austal is also using its in-house expertise to develop and integrate sophisticated electronic systems for command, control and communication.
