The M80 has been fine-tuned over years to optimize the balance between soft riding, rough water performance in any direction and calm water performance.

“BMT is excited to team up with a great South Australian company in Nautic Star to offer the M80 Interceptor vessel,” BMT Defence and Security Australia Managing Director, Peter Behrendt said.

“Nautic Star has already supplied sea boats to the Australian Border Force, proving that local firms can offer world leading capability for Australia’s defence and national security requirements,” Behrendt added.

“In addition to Australia, the M80 Interceptor Sea Boat is ready for international export, including to our key defence allies,” he said.

The M80 Interceptor is a 7.3m vessel suitable for a number of maritime requirements including the Royal Australian Navy Armidale-class patrol boats.
