The Royal Netherlands Navy has tested the interceptor model of the new high-speed vessel, fast raiding interceptor and special forces craft (FRISC).
The FRISCs are designed to perform a wide range of tasks, from counter-drugs operations to maritime counterterrorism operations.
The Marines Intervention Unit will conduct further tests to measure G-forces that occur when the vessel is at high speed.
The vessel, with a cruising speed of 40kt, will undergo further tests for 14 weeks before it is operational with final improvements to be cleared up by this autumn.
