Fincantieri: Qatar’s 4th and last Al Zubarah-class corvette delivered

 The fourth and last of Qatar’s Al Zubarah-class corvette built by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has been delivered.


The delivery ceremony for the vessel Semaisma took place at the Muggiano (La Spezia) shipyard in Italy.

The Al Zubarah-class corvettes, designed consistent with the RINAMIL rules, will be highly flexible and capable of fulfilling different kinds of tasks, from surveillance with sea rescue capacities to being fighting vessels.

They will be about 107 meters long, 14.70 meters wide, and equipped with a combined diesel and diesel plant (CODAD), with a maximum speed of 28 knots. The units will be able to accommodate 112 persons on board.

Furthermore, the corvettes will be capable of operating high-speed boats such as RHIB (Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat) through lateral cranes or a hauling ramp located at the far stern. The flight deck and hangar are sized for hosting one NH90 helicopter.

To remind, in December last year, the third vessel of this class, Al Khor, was delivered to Qatari Emiri Navy.
