French boatbuilder Zodiac Milpro has completed its acquisition of UK naval architects Vectis Marine Design, the two companies confirmed earlier this week.

Zodiac Milpro President Guillaume Laurin said the acquisition is in line with the two companies’ goal of exploring further opportunities in the defence and professional boating markets.

Zodiac Milpro and Vectis have worked closely on a number of newbuilding projects since 2009. Among their notable projects are a series of 9.3-metre rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) specially designed for use by the French Navy’s own special warfare operators.
