Fast patrol boats and interceptors: high quality and sustainability for maritime tasks
Marine Alutech has built aluminium and composite fast patrol boats (FPB) for coast guards and law enforcement since 1991.
These vessels are suitable for a variety of maritime high-speed patrol and interception operations against seaborne terrorists, illegal activities and maritime SAR distress operations. The vessels are designed to operate in littoral, confined and shallow water environments as well as all weather conditions.
Landing and fast assault crafts: modular and multirole high-speed amphibious operations
Marine Alutech modular landing and fast assault crafts are proven solutions for future amphibious capabilities worldwide.
Due to their state-of-the-art modular concept, the vessels can be easily configured as multifunctional, weaponised high-speed platforms, equipped with a compact combat management system as well as versatile remote weapon and self-protection systems. Marine Alutech vessels are particularly suitable for high-speed amphibious and evacuation operations as well as reconnaissance, patrolling, escort and force protection scenarios. The vessels can operate in littoral, archipelagic, coastal and offshore environments, and with an effective onboard heating and air-conditioning system, they can withstand extreme heat and cold as well as arid or humid climates.
The design of Watercat M14 Special Operations & Law Enforcement Craft is based on a proven M12 military landing craft in operational service in the Finnish Defense Forces.
Watercat K13 Fast Interceptor Craft is designed for high-speed operations against seaborne terrorist and illegal activities for Law Enforcement and HLS forces.
The design of Watercat 1000 patrol is based on Watercat 1300 patrol in operational service in the Finnish Coast Guard. Watercat 1000 patrol is smaller vessel than Watercat 1300, benefitting the experiences from her sister vessel.
