Interceptor Boats for the Lebanese Army
ASIS Boats has just completed the successful delivery of four new high-performance, aluminum constructed, 11-meter interceptor patrol-boats to the Lebanese Army’s Marine Commando Regiment (MCR) based in Amchit, Lebanon along with a ten-day course of intense boat-maintenance and boat-operator instruction.
ASIS utilized their expertise and their maritime passion to build and deliver four state-of-art Commando Boats under a subcontract to the URS from the United States Department of Defense’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and did so in record time while overcoming very significant challenges including substantial supply-chain management issues, the logistical intricacies of shipping boats into the explosion-damaged Port of Beirut as well as the multi-country complexities of COVID-19-compliance, the need for several in-country linguists and for written language translations…
ASIS got awarded the contract through PRO SEC, ASIS’s official Distributor in Lebanon.
“No other boat-building company in the world could have successfully completed this very fast-paced and very complex project, and do so during the very challenging environment that our entire industry is facing today, I am so very proud of our entire team,” Said Mr. Roy Nouhra, ASIS Boat’s President and CEO.
The ASIS team worked hard, alongside of its many trusted industry partners, to ensure that these military boats would exceed both the customer’s requirements and expectations and that the boats would be delivered on-time and also combined with 10-days of elite classroom and on-water training courses that were custom designed for the Commando Regiment’s principal mission-profile of high-speed vessel interdiction and Visit Board Search and Seizure Operations (VBSS).
The four 11m Interceptor Rigid Inflatable boats are built with an aluminum deep V-shape hull and deck as well as a protective Orca hypalon 1670 Dtex Collar keeping the boats steady and riding smoothly.
Designed to be driven efficiently in rough seas they are certified under category “B” for offshore use with up to 15 passengers.
