Launched in May 2019 by local shipbuilder PT Daya Radar Utama (DRU), Teluk Youtefa has now joined first-of-class Teluk Bintuni , which was commissioned in June 2015, and Teluk Lada , which entered service in February 2019, as part of the TNI-AL's strategic sealift command.

Teluk Youtefa is part of a contract for three additional vessels of the class that was awarded to PT DRU in January 2017, with the other two LSTs – Teluk Palu (523) and Teluk Calang (524) – currently in advanced stages of construction and expected to enter service later this year.

Two more vessels of the class were launched in late February of this year.

Teluk Youtefa , which has a crew of 120, has an overall beam of 18 m, and a hull draught of 3 m. The ship is powered by two 4,320 kW STX-MAN diesel engines and can attain a top speed of 16 kt with a standard range of 7,200 n miles at 13.6 kt, according to the TNI-AL.
