The Colombian and Honduran governments signed an agreement for the construction of two naval interceptors for the Central American nation.
The vessels will be manufactured by the Colombian state-run company Corporación de Ciencia y Tecnología para el Desarrollo de la Industria Naval, Marítima y Fluvial (COTECMAR), the company announced on 23 October. The vessels’ multimission interceptors are Multi-Mission Interceptor (MMI) 35s, which are produced by SAFE Boats International.
