The Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), an autonomous region in the southern Philippines, recently took delivery of three ambulance boats in a series from local builder Stoneworks Specialist International Corporation.

The FRP vessels each have a length of nine metres, a beam of 2.7 metres, and a draught of 0.4 metres. Power for each boat is provided by one outboard engine.

The newbuilds will join the existing fleet of ambulance boats operated by the BARMM’s Ministry of Health. Their primary role will be medical transport for residents throughout the Bangsamoro region’s five provinces.
