The Dutch Police force has ordered six patrol vessels from Damen Shipyards, due to be delivered between 2019 and 2021.
Three of the new vessels will be seagoing and the other three will be for inland waterways.
All six will be built at Damen’s headquarters in Gorinchem in the Netherlands.
The lightweight vessels will be built with an aluminium composite superstructure resulting in less resistance, higher performance and lower fuel consumption.
The layout of the wheelhouse will be fully customised and the vessels will be equipped with night vision technology.
The six boats will replace existing vessels and be deployed in the North Sea and on Dutch waterways, and in the ports of Vlissingen, IJmuiden and Rotterdam.
