As of today, the fleet in the Italian Coast Guard is enriched by two units of type S. A.R. (Search and Rescue). CP 300 designed and built by the Victory Shipyard. The Veneto-based company specializing in the design and construction of military, paramilitary, work and commercial vessels has handed over to the Port Authority Corps the first two boats.

The units are designed to reach a maximum continuous speed of 35 knots and can accommodate up to 200 people.

The official handover of the units took place at the Adria plant in a ceremony attended by Paolo Duò, president of Cantiere Navale Vittoria, and a delegation from the Italian Coast Guard represented by First Lieutenant Roberto Mangione (CP329) and First Lieutenant Bartolomeo Torrente (CP330).

The delivery of the first two vessels will be followed in the coming months by the delivery of the remaining three CP300 units whose construction work is being completed at the plant on the White Canal.
