Materials and Manufacturing
The materials used for the construction of this patrol boat are of high naval quality and especially suitable for intensive use, approximately 1000 h / year. In addition, all materials, equipment and systems installed are approved for naval use.
The welding used by AISTER during manufacturing are approved by Classification Societies as well as all the welders that have intervened in the process.
Inside the hull, under the deck, the patrol boat has been filled with polystyrene in order to achieve a reserve of non-floatable flotation and to protect the boat from friction against the port or others floating objects.
