Examples of the company’s products include the 15m fast patrol boat, used by the coast guard for interdiction operations, and the 34m patrol boat employed in support of homeland security and search and rescue. Al Fattan Ship Industry has also developed, as a private venture, a 16m catamaran torpedo boat.
