Colvic Craft Delivers 12 Of 44 Patrol Vessels To G r e e k Coastguard

Colvic Craft PLC, England, delivered the first 12 vessels of an order for 44 patrol boats for the Greek Coastguard.

At the June European Union (EU) Summit held in Corfu, three of the new Colvic Craft patrol craft played a key role in the security measures used by the Greek authorities to protect the visiting heads of state who were present for the Summit.

Two of the boats were from Athens and made the trip to Corfu for the conference. The third boat is permanently stationed in Corfu to patrol waters around the island.

The hulls of all the vessels were molded and partly completed by Colvic Craft in its factory near Colchester before being shipped to Greece for final fitting-out by Motomarine SA, including the fitting- out of German-built MAN diesel engines.

A 13th vessel was launched at Motomarine's slipway and is commencing sea trials.
