Mako Marine Delivers Patrol Boats To Colombian Coast Guard

The Miami, Fla.-based boatbuilder, Mako Marine, Inc., has delivered two harbor patrol boats, the Escorpian and Libra, to the Colombian Coast Guard.

The vessels' primary mission is to interdict and curtail the flow of narcotics moving in and out of Columbia's ports and harbors. The boats will also fulfill secondary missions of search and rescue, protection of natural resources and maritime assistance.

Based upon Mako Marine's highly regarded 261-B hull, which is 26 feet long with an 8.5-foot beam, the deep-vee hull has excellent seakeeping characteristics, permitting the forward .50 caliber FAST • SAFE CONVENIENT Civilian or Military Applications Guaranteed Fastest Installation Available Uninterrupted Installation 24 hrs. a Day Shipyard Compatible Permanent and Fixed Ballast Requirements Removable MINERALS RESEARCH & RECOVERY, INC.

The vessels are powered by two 175-hp Evinrude outboard engines generating speeds in excess of 40 mph. Two tactical radios, a PRC 1077 VHF and PRC 1099 HF, have been fitted to provide communications with military vessels and shore stations, while a Ross DSC 500 marine VHF will be used to contact commercial vessels. The coast guard boats' electronic suite also includes a Raytheon R40X marine radar, Ritchie compass, Raytheon depthsounder, VHF radio direction finder and a Trim pack PSN-10 GPS to provide precise navigation for interdiction and search and rescue missions.

To ensure that the boats can be rapidly redeployed anywhere in the country, their custom pilot houses can be split and radar masts lowered to allow airlift via Colombian Air Force C-130 Hercules transports. The Mako Marine-built harbor patrol boats provide the Colombian Coast Guard with an extremely versatile, readily deployable and low maintenance asset.
