Triple Delivery for FBM Babcock Marine

Wednesday, April 23, 2003
Three 88 ft. patrol vessels being built by Southampton based FBM Babcock Marine Ltd have arrived in the Port of Southampton on the back of a heavy lift mother ship. The vessels are part of a six vessel fleet designed by FBM Babcock Marine and built in their shipyards in Scotland and the Philippines for SMIT International (Scotland) Ltd. The vessels will be used by SMIT International (Scotland) for training military aircrew in marine survival techniques, helicopter winching drills and general marine support tasks, as part of a Public Private Partnership Programme awarded by the UK MOD. The boats are undergoing final preparation prior to handover to their owners in the next week.
