Ultra Fast Interceptor

To enhance the interdiction capability of the Hong Kong Marine Police, and to replace slower vessels, the Hong Kong Marine Department issued a procurement specification for a highly sophisticated interceptor. Not only had the craft to exceed a speed of 60 knots, but a major consideration was to incorporate the safest working environment that was practical for the crew of up to eight persons. The primary role of the craft was high-speed pursuit, either singularly or in consort with other vessels, for the interception, apprehension and deterrence of vessels engaged in smuggling activities in Hong Kong waters.
