A Tasmanian company is positioning its watercraft, using a unique construction material, for Australian naval requirements.

Tasmanian company PFG unveiled its Sentinel 1100 on 10 May as an 11m-long tactical watercraft designed primarily for maritime interdiction. 

Sentinel 1100 will be placed in the water for the first time soon, but in the interim it was ‘launched’ at Indo-Pacific 2022 in Sydney.

The development of this boat was funded by PFG and, like other members of its Sentinel family, the new craft features high-density polyethylene (HDPE) on its hull and deck.

PFG claims this material, obtained from Germany, outperforms alloy or composite materials in terms of impact/vibration absorption, durability and buoyancy, plus it does not corrode nor foul.
