The Mexican Navy contracted Damen Shipyards Group for the design and material package of a Damen Stan Patrol 4207, including technical assistance. Construction of the vessel will start in the summer of 2013 at ASTIMAR 1 (Tampico), one of the five naval shipyards of Astilleros de la Secretaría de Marina.

The vessels are designed to perform patrolduties in designated areas. Other clients who operate similar vessels in the region include navies and coast guards of Jamaica, Barbados, the Dutch Caribbean, Honduras and the Canadian Coast Guard.

When it comes to maritime defence and security, Damen offers a portfolio of proven vessels ranging from seven-200 meters. Damen designs and delivers Frigates, Corvettes, (high-speed) Inshore and Offshore Patrol Vessels, Auxiliary Ships (such as Landing Platform Docks), Interceptors and many other types.

The Spa 4207 patrol vessel will be the third of its class. The previous two vessels, ARM Tenochtitlan (PC-331) and ARM Teotihuacan (PC-332), started construction in 2011 and were delivered mid-2012.
