Halmatic to Supply Patrol Boats

Monday, May 13, 2002
U.K. boatbuilder Halmatic, part of the Vosper Thornycroft Group, has recently secured a contract to build 20 Halmatic Cougar Enforcer 33 Ultra Fast Patrol Boats for the Royal Oman Police Coastguard. The new craft are to be used for coastal patrol and interception duties along Oman’s coastline. The new patrol boats are based on the Cougar 33 raceboat deep “Vee” hull form. Powered by twin Yanmar inboard marine diesels driving Hamilton waterjets the boats will achieve service speeds in excess of 45 knots. This contract is the first major overseas success for the Halmatic Cougar Alliance, launched in 2001 to design, market and manufacture the Cougar range of ultra fast patrol boats. There are three versions of the Halmatic Cougar Enforcer craft, between 33 ft. and 46 ft., and a smaller catamaran. Inboard or outboard powered, with twin or triple engines, UFPBs can be specified to offer speeds between 40-70 knots with reliability and comfort.
