Safe Boats International has partnered with Cotecmar to jointly produce aluminium vessels for the Colombian military and other regional customers, the company announced on 15 March.

The agreement builds on a previously signed Memorandum of Understanding with Cotecmar into a multi-year, definitive association agreement to co-produce many of its products already in Colombia.

The agreement includes co-production of SAFE models such as the Defender, Apostle and Full Cabin Jet Boats along with its most recently introduced Multi-Mission Interceptor.

It also covers programme management, training, factory production training and sub-assembly and integration by Cotecmar in Colombia.

Dennis Morris, CEO of Safe Boats International, said: 'The decision to further enhance our relationship with Cotecmar is evidence of our commitment to the Colombian Navy and providing the brave men and women who serve in Colombia with the best products and services to allow them to effectively accomplish their challenging missions.'

Jorge Carreño, CEO of Cotecmar, said: 'Our naval solutions to the world involve high technology and maximum security, which guarantee a significant performance in the missions assigned to the ships we manufacture. We are confident that this relationship with Safe Boats allows us to continue to provide lasting and successful naval solutions.'
