New contract signed for five patrol boats

Industry Database

Boatbuilder Norsafe has recently secured an order from Papastratos Tobacco Company S.A., an affiliate of Philip Morris International in Greece, for the construction of five high speed patrol boats, which will be donated to the Hellenic Coast Guard.

The donation of the boats, is part of the international project “PMI Impact”, created by Philip Morris International, whose aim is to support public and private bodies in the fight against smuggling and related crimes.

The five units will be manufactured in Greece and are expected to join the Hellenic Coast Guard fleet at the end of 2018 and this action highlights the importance of cooperation between the private and public sector in the combat against the smuggling of tobacco products, drugs, and weapons along with the overall protection of the Greek and European maritime borders.

The Norsafe range consists of multi-purpose work boats, rescue and high-speed patrol boats, fast attack and offshore powerboats.

The company has also built various types of specialised boats such as, pilot boats, landing crafts and passenger / personnel transport boats.
