The Coast Guard’s new SAR units

As of today, the fleet in the Italian Coast Guard is enriched by two units of type S. A.R. (Search and Rescue). CP 300 designed and built by the Victory Shipyard. The Veneto-based company specializing in the design and construction of military, paramilitary, work and commercial vessels has handed over to the Port Authority Corps the first two boats.

The Coast Guard’s new SAR units are unsinkable and self-righting, intended primarily for carrying out search and rescue operations at sea.

They have a length of about 20 meters, width of 4.5 meters, with a draft of 0.95 meters.

The units are designed to reach a maximum continuous speed of 35 knots and can accommodate up to 200 people.

Three more boats on the way

The official handover of the units took place at the Adria plant in a ceremony attended by Paolo Duò, president of Cantiere Navale Vittoria, and a delegation from the Italian Coast Guard represented by First Lieutenant Roberto Mangione (CP329) and First Lieutenant Bartolomeo Torrente (CP330).

The delivery of the first two vessels will be followed in the coming months by the delivery of the remaining three CP300 units whose construction work is being completed at the plant on the White Canal.
