HENDERSON, Western Australia - Austal announced 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.

"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," said Austal chief executive officer David Singleton. "To date, we have directly engaged 348 Australian suppliers and created and sustained 350 jobs in the delivery of the Cape program."
