The concept of a military style patrol boat on a commercial hull platform was developed with the engineering departments of Marsun Shipyard and the Royal Thai Navy.
A patrol boat required a larger superstructure as well as some armament. To accommodate the additional weight, with increasing speed, the design team decided to increase the horsepower of the navy patrol version.
This was accomplished by three 1800-HP Cummins KTA50-M engines. The 36-meter hull maintained the same 7.6-meter beam and hull form.With 63-square-meters of clear deck space, retain much of the 36-meter crew boat’s large 67-square-meter after deck.
This gives the patrol boat the same 50-ton load capacity with a total of 5400 reliable horsepower, achieves speeds in excess of 27-knots.
