Intermarine Launches Italian Fast Patrol Boat

Thursday, July 28, 2005
On July 28, 2005, Rodriquez’s Intermarine shipyard in Sarzana launched the Bigliani Class VI Series Fast Patrol Boat G124 Cavatorto. The G124 Cavatorto will be formally delivered in approximately eight months and is an evolution of the Bigliani class training vessels, Marino e Pedretti developed for the Italian Navy in 1998. The 27m vessel is built 100% of composite, and is capable of speeds up to 40 knots. It will be used by the Guardia di Finanza as a coastal patrol vessel to fight against illicit smuggling and contraband activities. The launching cerimony was presided over by Gen. Walter Peruzzo, commander of the Guardia di Finanza Regione Liguria and by the Director of the Intermarine Yard, Mr. Edoardo Cossutta. This latest launch is part of a contract with the Guardia di Finanza for the supply of ten 27 m patrol vessels along with five 35 m patrol boats. The G124 Cavatorto is the 9th 27 meter unit. The first, the second, the third and the fourth have been delivered and are already in operation. In addition to this contract, Intermarine in cooperation with Baglietto is also building a series of fourteen 13.2 m fast interceptor craft (45 knots) for the Guardia di Finanza. Intermarine has also been awarded a contract by the Italian Navy for the midlife refit of the Lerici Class minehunters previously built by Intermarine.
