Eighth and Final Patrol Boat Delivered to ABF
Cape York, the final of eight Cape Class Patrol Boats built by Austal, has been delivered to the Australian Border Force.
Commenting on this $330 million design, build and in-service support contract, Austal Chief Executive Officer Andrew Bellamy said:
Austal has delivered one Cape Class Patrol vessel approximately every 10 weeks over 2014-2015; which has significantly increased Australian Border Force’s capability to reliably deliver on the Border Protection obligations it undertakes for the Commonwealth of Australia.
This latest acquisition ensures the operational availability of the Australian Border Force fleet around the country.
