Cape-Class Patrol Vessels

The Cape-class patrol boats of the Australian Border Force, the Royal Australian Navy and the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard – all built by Austal – feature aluminum davits for fast-rescue and interceptor craft, providing an unparalleled boarding capability.

In its most recent delivery to Austal, Vestdavit supplied the PLAR-4501 and PLAR-6501 models. Designed in accordance with the latest rules and regulations as per DNV GL-ST-0498 ‘Launching Appliances for Work and Tender Boats’, the davits provide unmatched redundancy as well as improved control-and-monitoring systems.
