KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Boustead Naval Shipyard (BNS) for the delivery of four Littoral Mission Ships at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace (LIMA) 2017 exhibition on March 20. The contract is part of a collaborative effort between Malaysia and China that will see BNS partner with a Chinese shipyard on the four-year project.

The Littoral Mission Ships (LMSs) will be designed by the partnering Chinese yard. The first two vessels will then be built in China and delivered in 2019 and 2020. The final two ships will be built locally by BNS and delivered in Malaysia in 2021.

Reports of the Chinese-Malaysian collaborative project emerged in early November 2016 when Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak announced that his country would be purchasing at least four - and as many as 10 - of the Chinese-designed LMSs. Most likely these new ships are scaled-down derivatives of the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) Type 056A (Jiangdao-class) corvette, similar to those ordered by the Bangladesh Navy, the Durjoy-class.

CARTAGENA, Colombia - SAFE Boats International of Bremerton, Washington formally announced on March 15 at the 2017 Colombia Mar conference that it has broadened its previously signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with COTECMAR into a multi-year, definitive Association Agreement to co-produce many of its products in Colombia. Vessels will be produced for both the Colombian military and regional militaries.

The agreement includes co-production of SAFE models already in use in Central and South America such as the Defender, Apostle and Full Cabin Jet Boats along with its most recently introduced Multi-Mission Interceptor (MMI). The agreement encompasses a wide range of collaboration including program management, training, factory production training and sub-assembly and integration by COTECMAR in Colombia.

COTECMAR, a Colombian government shipyard created in 2000, has experience delivering large ships and marine services to both Colombian and International users, is a leading manufacturer of large Offshore Patrol Vessels, Coastal Patrol Vessels, Defense craft, BAL-C Logistics and Humanitarian Craft along with many other commercial and riverine vessels produced for the Colombian Navy, Marines and Coast Guard along with training and other services.

Interceptor boats and patrol craft are popular in Latin America as governments combat illegal trafficking. Lightweight, low cost vessels are ideal to patrol coastal waterways and rapidly respond to reports of traffickers in an area. Setting up an agreement with a local manufacturer will give SAFE Boats an advantage in this important market.
