17m Patrol & Protection Boat Design

17m Patrol & Protection

Designing vessels to meet the most demanding coastal military requirements in all sea states.

The Berthon 17m Offshore Patrol Vessel incorporates the hull designs of Peter Eyre; the Naval Architect responsible for the RNLI’s highly acclaimed Shannon class all-weather lifeboat.

Designed for: patrol, interdiction, force protection and command duties in all sea states. The vessel offers superior seakeeping ability with a platform that prevents slamming. High speeds can be sustained, even in adverse sea conditions.

Technical Specifications 

Patrol & Protection Class

  • Information

    • Constructed from advanced composite materials; providing an exceptionally strong structure, and a damage and corrosion resistant craft.
    • Unique, proven hull design for superior seakeeping in all sea states. Able to maintain high speeds in adverse sea conditions.
    • Reduced hull slamming and advanced shock mitigation seating ensures personnel remain fully capable throughout mission.
    • Personnel can be sustained for long periods. Advanced wheelhouse climate control systems allow full operational deployment, even in extreme conditions. The vessel is equipped with a full mess area, galley, heads compartment and sleeping accommodation.
    • Twin waterjets deliver superior shallow water capability and exceptional manoeuvrability. Increased control better enables close contact surveillance and boarding operations.
    • Flexible platform design which can be adapted for wide range of naval, coast guard and special forces roles. Ramped aft dock available for integrated daughter craft; either PWC (for speed) or RIB (for beach/rescue operations).
    • Protected emplacements for effective integration of a wide range of weapon systems, including roof mounted remote weapon system options.

    Berthon 20m Fast Patrol & Protection

    The Berthon 22m Fast Patrol vessel has been developed as the next-generation fast patrol boat for naval, coast guard and police operations. The Advanced Planing Monohull (APM) hullform is a development of the proven hullform of the UK RNLI’s new Shannon Class Fast Lifeboat.

    The APM hullform is a double-chine, warped, planing hullform with a fine entry and high freeboard forward, and wide stern sections with high form stability. In combination with the high deadrise angle amidships, the result is a soft riding craft with minimal slamming and deck wetting enabling a high speed to be maintained in higher sea states.
