French shipyard Ufast have been awarded a contract to build twelve 15m interceptors for the French Navy. The purpose built vessels will be operated by marine commando units for maritime patrol and port defence. Powered by a quad installation of outboard engines they will achieve in excess of 40 Knots. These interceptors will be armed and fitted with armoured protection. Ufast also continue to build other Camarc models including a series of 9.4m military RIBs.

Camarc's 18m design for Centreport has won "Work Boat World - Best Pilot Boat 2017". Built by the team at Q-West of New Zealand, the vessel features a self-righting capability given the rough conditions found in the Cook Strait. A resilient wheelhouse reduces noise levels and the all-around Camarc Popsure fender system protects the structure against impact loads. Waterjet propulsion has been selected by the operators to provide enhanced maneuverability during pilot operations.

Camarc has been working with Egyptian engineering company Mapso over the years to provide the Pi series of pilot boats to various Egyptian ports & operators. The series of aluminum pilot boats includes both 14m and 15m models. The Suez Canal Authority are among the operators using these robust & durable boats. A Mapso spokesman stated, “the main reason for this success is that the hull lines provide an excellent compromise between speed, seaworthiness, and ride comfort in all weathers”.

Last year Camarc completed an extensive trials programme for Loodswezen looking at potential improvements for their fleet of Camarc pilot vessels. This included full-scale trials of the new refined Camarc hull analyzing speed, fuel efficiency, motions, accelerations & pilot boarding operations. The results yielded significant improvements in efficiency, fuel consumption, and accelerations over an already capable platform. Loodswezen have since commissioned Camarc to design the next series of pilot vessels, featuring the new refined hull.
