11th October 2019 - 07:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BMT Defence and Security Australia has signed an agreement with Australian custom boat builder, Nautic Star, to offer a naval interceptor solution to the Australian government.

The offer will be based on the M80 Interceptor next generation sea boat, a 7.3m vessel suitable for a range of maritime missions including deploying from the Royal Australian Navy Armidale class patrol boats. 

Peter Behrendt, managing director, BMT Defence and Security Australia, said: ‘BMT is excited to team up with a great South Australian company in Nautic Star to offer the M80 Interceptor vessel.

‘Nautic Star has already supplied sea boats to the Australian Border Force, proving that local firms can offer world leading capability for Australia’s defence and national security requirements. In addition to Australia, the M80 Interceptor Sea Boat is ready for international export, including to our key defence allies.’
