UAE-based Asis Boats has launched a new series of cabin boat optimised for maritime security missions.
The 12-metre rigid inflatable boat (RIB) series, a demonstration example of which has just completed final testing, may also be used for search and rescue (SAR).
The RIB has a hybrid construction of aluminium and fibreglass, an air-conditioned cabin, a forward berthing area for two people, and three Yamaha 260kW outboard engines delivering a maximum speed in excess of 52 knots.
A crew-served weapons station may also be mounted on the foredeck.
