Austal (ASX:ASB) is pleased to announce the successful roll out prior to launch of Hull 380, the ninth Cape-class patrol boat designed and constructed by Austal and the first of two to be delivered to the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) in 2017.

Australian Defence Industry Minister, The Hon. Christopher Pyne MP, Senator Chris Back and Federal Member for Canning, Andrew Hastie MP joined Austal Chief Executive Officer David Singleton and Austal Chairman, John Rothwell at the official roll out, completed at Austal’s Henderson Western Australia shipyard.

Mr Singleton said: “It is with great pride we welcome the Defence Industry Minister here today to celebrate not only the continuing success of Cape-class as an effective maritime border protection solution, but Austal’s proven shipbuilding capability.

“Austal delivered eight Capes to the Australian Border Force over 2013 – 2015 and we will hand over Capes 9 and 10 to the Royal Australian Navy in the first half of 2017. To date, we have directly engaged 348 Australian suppliers and created and sustained 350 jobs in the delivery of the Cape program.”



Austal’s Cape-class patrol boat is a 58 metre all aluminium monohull vessel, designed to perform border protection and maritime security tasks, with a top speed of 26 knots and a range of up to 4,000 nautical miles. With a crew of 22, the vessel is capable of undertaking 28 day patrols in (up to) sea state 4 and the ability to launch two boats simultaneously.

New, enhanced maritime security and anti-mine warfare variants of the Cape were announced at Euronaval 2016, which offer even greater capability and feature mission packages that include unmanned aerial vehicle’s (UAV’s), unmanned surface vessel (USV’s) and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV’s).

Hull 380 is due to be launched later this week and will undergo final fitout before sea trials commencing in January 2017. Delivery to the RAN is on schedule for April 2017.

The second Cape for the RAN, Hull 381, is due for launch in February 2017.

  1. Malaysia tak usah beli kapal semacam ini ,sebab Aussie biasanya membagi-bagikan patrol boat semacam ni untuk negara-negara sekitar yang tak mampu dalam program Pasifik Patrol Boat .Tunggu je la progmam ni .sebelumnya malaysia,srilanka,Timle dan negara -negara miskin lainnya di pasifik sudah menerima secara percuma boat jenis Bay class dari Ausie. Semoga tidak ada lagi pelaut Indonesia yang di culik di wilayah Malaysia.

    1. betul, Indonesia pun dah dpt byk peralatan percuma dr pelbagai negara. US pernah, Australia pernah. wow..miskinnya Indonesia..

      Hapus
    2. Indonesia pernah menerima f16 dari us ,sebab banyak Stock F16 yang tidak bisa di jual karane sudah ketinggalan jaman . Agar supaya bisa jadi USD maka US minta Indonesia menerima 24 unit dengan catatan dilakukan pembelian spare parts pada firma US dan harus bayar man hours tenaga ahli US . Artinya Indonesia membantu ekonomi US yang lagi lesu ,sama case nya dengan C130 dari Aussie .Dalam hal ini keuntungan ada di dua pihak . Beda dengan hibah Bay class boat jelas tidak ada keuntungan materi untuk Aussie murni sedekah...

      Hapus
    3. 1. Pemberian percuma US kpd indonesia bkn kerana stok yg xterjual, tetapi bekas pesawat USAF yg tidak lg efektif utk digunakan. jadi diberikan kpd Indonesia secara percuma.Indonesia berminat utk naiktaraf, jadi terpaksa membayar kpd US.
      2. Indonesia juga pernah menerima kapal dr Australia.
